    Hello, this is my first post and I've searched for two hours on this forum to see if someone had asked what I'm about to. Answer came out negative, if this is repeated, I'm terribly sorry.

    Ok, so I am in need of a decent software to edit some videos. I know iMovie is integrated on my OS but I honestly dislike the problem and I need a bit more options to edit the audio of the video. Timelines are my thing (L).

    Anyways, I know about Final Cut and Premiere, I've used both, but unfortunately, I cannot afford any of them. I'm looking for a freeware preferably or something cheap, that has a timeline and basic options, but with an easier interface than iMovie. I've looked around but most of them are for Linux.

    Help will be greatly appreciated! :)

    Which iMovie are you using? iMovie11 has a Timeline, and has good audio editing now.

    I'm using iMovie09. Is there a way I can update to the newer version?

    Less lost in L.A.
    Here is another third party video editor; SimpleMovieX - $39

    If you are running Snow Leopard (OS X 10.6) then you can buy the current version of iMovie. It is $14.99. If you are near an Apple store, go check it out and ask to see the time line feature.

    If you are not in a hurry, you can wait for Lightworks being ported to OS X fourth quarter this year. Or if you have a Windows partition you can download the Win version.

    A pro level software for free (at least at this moment).
