    i bought the 4pin to 6pin firewire cable. have a samsung minidv camera. only thing i can find right now is idvd, but it wants to grab the video and burn it to dvd right away, i'd like to edit a little first

    FinalCut Express is phenomenal for a consumer level program once you get past the learning curve.

    Doesn't iMovie do it as well?
    but another vote for Final Cut Express if it doesn't.

    final cut express looks nice, but is somewhat scary to me. i'm not sure how well it would hold up on my c2d macbook. imovie sometimes stutters a little.

    woah, i feel really dumb all of a sudden. i was using idvd...i should have been using imovie. problem solved :rofl:
