Hey everyone, my wife and i are expecting our first child in march, so with that I plan on buying a camcorder. Right now I'm pretty set on the Canon HF11. I've been researching video editing software and was ready to go back to PC to use cyberlink powerdirector or sony vegas, but in reading more about FCE and the mac platform it seems to get alot of praise. I have a 24" iMac and would either keep that and buy a macbook/mbp so i can edit freely w/out being tied to the office or sell it and buy a fully loaded pc and laptop. I have a few questions that I haven't seen clearly defined so hopefully someone can help. - Can FCE edit/import full 1080P? - Can it output full 1080P to be played on a bluray player (Roxio toast?) on either standard dvd or bluray (assuming affordable burners get released) - Is FCE fairly easy to learn/use/edit for home movies? - Other then DVD, what's the best way to distribute the movies to family/friends? - Can FCE do chapters, menus, etc. in a HD format? - Does it support creating 5.1 surround sound? Thanks in advance!!!
