    Hey everyone,

    Yes, I have done a search, I went through 5 of 10 pages of it, read the threads and only one thread came close. So here's what I would like to do, I make a lot of videos (.mov) with screenflow and iShowU (not iShowU HD), I also like to make video with my digital camera (Fujifilm S1000FD captures in high quality). I want to make it so I can put text on the screen during the video, in whichever size i would like, whichever color, and I want the people to be able to see what is happening, I don't want it to be a black background with white writing like in iMovie. I also want to be able to make the screen have effects, like it starts flipping around in different ways and centers back into the middle and lets the movie play. I also want to be able to grey everything out, and make one thing red, like say in video game montages (especially gears of war headshot montages). Thanks for the help!

    Sounds like Final Cut Express will fit your needs.
