    New to video editing
    My folks have a Sony DV camera which they use now and again. I have been known to edit videos using Adobe Photoshop on my PC. Now that I have my gorgeous MacBook though, I want to see what video editing is like on the white side. My question is, what program do I use to do it, and can I export it in such a way as to be able to brun the movie to DVD from my PC (my MacBook doesn't have a superdrive).

    Cheers!

    You use iMovie, I've used it several times and it works great. If you want to export the video to Windows when you're finished, you can click on 'Share' up in the toolbar and format the file for Quicktime. Then simply e-mail yourself the file and open it on your PC.

    Well, Photoshop is not made for editing video. It is an image editor, not a video editor. If you found a way to use it as a video editor, then it is likely the worst thing you could ever use to edit video.

    iMovie is great for home movies and little side projects. Don't knock it until you have tried it.
    If you feel that iMovie can't offer you all that you need, then take a look at Final Cut Express.

    Yea just do wat 99 said, just make sure u share (export) the video in full quallity, it will take about 40 min to format a hour video on you mac book. And insted of emailing it to yourself you casn just use a flash drive , which would need to be a 6gb drive for a hour worth of video, or some type of transfer between you mac to the pc useing firewire, I know 2 macs can do it.
