    Ok, so I have two videos of the same event. I would like to create a video where the audio is constant but I splice in the video from different sources. (Alternate between videos.) I have Final Cut Express and iDVD 4. It would seem that the easiest way to do this would be to lay down two tracks with audio+video, mute one of the videos, and then delete the audio portions from the angle I didn't want to show at that particular time. However, I don't think iDVD will let me do this and I can't seem to figure out how to make FCE do it either. Any advice?

    Target only the video track and do an insert edit. It is possible to do in FCE.

    Great, thanks! Do you happen to know what menu the insert edit resides in? I'm still learning to use FCE, iDVD I know pretty well.

    I'm not sure, but in FCP you can place the video/audio pairs in the sequence and then unlink them - so that they become separate pieces. I do it all the time and I'd be surprised you'd not have the same ability in FCE.
