    Like a lot of people I just abhor iMovie... I sure miss iMovie HD that used to be so easy and intuitive.

    I'm not editing long professional movies... usually just videos I shoot of myself and need to edit good transitions etc...

    I.E. I need it EASY..... I like a lot of what iMovie does, just not how it does it.... so user-unfriendly!! :(

    Anyone have suggestions on a replacement... a nice "light" user friendly program that also interfaces with my onboard iSight.

    Looking for recommendations....

    Adobe Premiere Elements 11. Got a bit of a learning curve. Adobe does have some good tutorials on their site to help you learn though. There are others that are still better, but will cost you a fair bit more. And yes, get rid of Dear God in title.

    I started using Macs in 2008. My first Mac had Tiger and iMovie 06. A few months later I got iMovie 08.

    Intuitive? easy to use? iMovie 06 was a hot mess for a new user to pick up. It made no sense. None of the stuff made sense.

    iMovie 08 was truly easy for me to pick up and use. Granted, it was also a lot less powerful.

    I get that you liked iMovie 06, but really calling it more intuitive?

    Adobe Premiere is your only choice in the price range I would say.

    ScreenFlow is a capable video editor which offers multiple tracks & timelines for editing. It's feature set leans towards screencasting though (with screen/isight/camera recordings).
