    I'm considering buying a Sanyo Xacti C4, which lets me record MPEG-4 video on a SD memory card. I want to edit those movies with my Mac, so my question is, what kind of editing can I do natively, that is, without having to decode and reencode the MPEG-4 data? And what kind of software is there for this purpose?

    depending on what sort of complexity you want to do with your editing...

    QuickTime Pro can chop and paste clips together, i don't know about iMovie or FCP, never tried that myself...

    Anything that you can play in the QuickTime Pro player can be brought into iMovie. MPEG-4 is an open format from Apple. Michael666 should have no trouble editing his little video clips in iMovie.
