hey guys, I have been doing a lot of filming of late, but since I do not have a mac I have not been able to edit. But, I should be getting a Imac 21.5 within a few weeks. But, I know iMovie comes with a mac, and FCP is rather pricy. I know this is most likely frowned apon, but how safe would it be to download FCP off a site like, piratebay, etc. Since, there are many,many more video effects and just better workflow with fcp. Im filming with a canon t2i, so would I be able to straight up upload the video clips or would I need to convert them, and would this reduce the quality? Last question, I'm making a summer video,movie thing and for an effect I want text but with video clips inside the text would this be possible with iMovie? https://vimeo.com/userfundaprod check out some of our videos! thanks, dylan p. I just realized that this area would be better than my previous post--sorry about the double post.
