I’m considering using iMovie 09 for some of my editing work. I realize that iMovie is in many ways a toy, but there are features that I like about it. It seems to be very fast for a lot of meat and potatoes chores.
However, since it’s intended for use with a cam corder, you’re stuck with certain things, like pre-set HD sizes and either 30fps NTSC, or 25fps PAL.
My 3D work is at 24fps, so I wonder if working in PAL 25fps would be close enough?
Has anyone done this? or is the whole idea silly? Video editors aren’t cheap, and the free ones have the advantage of being free.
Then there’s Blender’s built-in editor, which I haven’t even messed with yet.
