    Can anyone think about simple and free video editing?
    Nee ability to edit avi files (divx or xvid) probably, to edit some text (and graphical objects) like a subtitles to a cartoon.

    Thanks in advance!

    Jahshaka isn't very simple. I would use iSquint to convert tha AVIs to m4vs and then use iMovie. That's what I have to do with my Casio EX-Z60.

    Get iLife '08 if you don't already have it.

    Did you buy your Mac recently? If so, it should have come with iLife already loaded on it...

    If you got your Mac recently, and iLife '08 isn't already installed, try inserting the Leopard installation disk and install it from there. I know my friend had to do that when he got his Mac a few months ago

    iLife, including iMovie, is included on every new Mac. Depending on when you bought your Mac, you should have iMovie HD or iMovie 08.

    You might need MPEG StreamClip to convert the videos to the format iMovie needs.

    Thank you very much.
    I think I probably skipped iLife while reinstalling Mac OS )))
