    Just wondering if anyone had any idea of a good program or way to do some really simple editing of .avi files, exactly like what I could do it QT pro?

    Basically I want to cut out half of a tv show, but the file I have is one of those files that won't open up in QT pro, it always says that QT doesnt have the necessary codec and redirects me to the Mac site, which then says that it doesnt have the right thing. (When I check the info for the file in VLC it says that it is a DX50 codec...whatever that is!)

    Anyway, if anyone had any workarounds or suggestions for other programs to do this on I would be really grateful...Thanks!

    a friend of mine was able to edit .avi files in iMovie.

    have you tried that?

    I'll give it a go, but it takes ages to load clips in iMovie and the file I was wanting to edit was about 1gig. I was hoping for a similar thing to QTpro where it was (relatively) fast. Thanks anyway though! :)

    That's DivX (DX50) so just download the codecs from divx.com and you'll be good to go. QT will work fine with the proper codecs.

    Yep. Just download DivX, install, and use QT Pro.

    If QT doesnt play it its unlikely that imovie if Final cut will as they all use QT.
