    Timeline Video Editing :)
    Hello everyone
    I'm currently a student studying media production. Although i frequently use final cut pro on my college's mac's i have a few films i'd like to edit on my macbook the only problem is i cant afford final cut pro and i just cant get use to not using a timeline on the new version of imovie and just wondered if anyone knows any cheaper alternatives (or free if possible) to final cut pro or if theres anyway i can affordably download imovie 06. I really need advice Thank you all x

    Final Cut Express is very very similar. That's what I have. About $200, I think?

    I've also downloaded the old version of iMovie because of the same personal preference of timeline editing. Not as many features/tools as FCE.
    iMovie HD 6.0.2 is the only version I can find for download on Apple's website and it's free. Then you can do some updates to it. The farthest I went was to 6.0.4, but I'm not sure if it goes any further than that. Apple - Downloads - Application Updates - iMovie HD 6.0.2

    Final Cut Express is cheaper. Student discounts should help bring that down a bit as well. iMovie is very consumer driven.

    Arrgh. you beat me to it.

    Thank you so much for your help Final Cut express is still a little bit out of my price range but i'll consider it once i've got a more reliable income source. I just tried to download imovie 6 and it said i need imovie 6.1. Where do i download that? I much prefer imovie 06 due to the timeline feature x
