      chipthrasher It's practically the same, but costs less and does a little bit less. Final Cut Pro is basically a better version of iMovie. If you know iMovie, you know Final Cut Pro.

      Final Cut Pro is premium iMovie, so why is this here? This comes pre-loaded on all new macs!

      It can only work with one video and one audio track. Trying to synch audio/video from more then one source is difficult.
