Last year my (then girlfriend) wife and I purchased a Sony MiniDV camera. It didn't take me very long to hit the ceiling with iMovie. I made some pretty great stuff, but I was constantly annoyed at the limitations I came up against. I had the opportunity to pick up a cheap copy of FCEv1. The learning curve is quite a bit more steep then that of iMovie (I found iMovie to great to play with and figure out, FCE is a little more complicated), but I've made some progress this last weekend. Now, I was curious if anyone out there had used (and abused) Final Cut Express v1, then purchased and used (and abused) v2, and could enumerate some of the important differences between the two. I don't really want to spend $100 for no particular reason. My accountant/wife will give me the evil eye.. Mainly I'm looking for practical reasons for purchase/not worth purchasing. Thanks!
