    Over the weekend I had a chance to edit a Hi-Definition wedding video with Final Cut Express on a Alum iMac.

    Is it me or does it seem like Final Cut has an extreme learning curve? Just to insert a simple disolve transition, it took me several minutes to figure out how it's done even after reading the documentation.

    After an entire day, I finally got the hang of using Final Cut to produce a video but this took much longer than learning iMovie or Pinnacle (for Windows).

    I will say this though. Once I figured everything out, it feels like I'm only scratching the surface of what this program can do. Very powerful stuff!

    I think anything will be harder to learn than iMovie or Pinnacle.

    Final Cut is the choice of most pro's using Mac's and while it may be somewhat difficult, persevere it's worth it in the long run .. :)
