Just bought iLife, FCP Xpress eventually– but probably not until I find out more about it...<br><br>Want to see if I can still import my analog footage through my camcorder...<br>I know it says 'DV only', but the camcorder supposedly converts whatever I import through it to a DV stream...<br><br>Thoughts?<br><br>[color:red]Hold on, it's time for a...</font color=red><br>
iMovie is DV only. As long as you convert the analog footage, camcorder or Dazzle makes no diff, the end effect will be the same.<br>What I would like to know, however, is whether FCE will interact with iDVD as nicely as iMovie3 will, notably taking over chapter marks, etc.<br>Can't imagine them introducing FCE and NOT have it offer this convenience - unless there will also be a DVDStudio Express soon.<br><br>

A powerbook, but then again i've been planning that for ages, i think a cheaper 12" would be more convincing for my parents though...<br><br>"...

This is what I found on the FCPE mini-site:<br><br>6. DVD Chapter Markers<br>Click on the Marker button to insert a marker into Final Cut Express clip or into a sequence timeline. Markers let you annotate while you edit, identifying important video or audio points. When a sequence is exported, Markers in a sequence timeline are recognized by iDVD or DVD Studio Pro as Chapter Markers. This feature makes it easy to create great DVDs with chapter navigation.<br><br>[color:red]Hold on, it's time for a...</font color=red><br>
I am waiting to find out about the printing options in KeyNote before buying (need to print handouts like in PP).<br><br>I also would have picked up a 12" if I just did not pick up my TiBook. I noticed the SuperDrive 12" is $1899 for .edu!<br><br>
