About this item

The Final Cut Express 4 Video Editing Software for Mac OS X from Apple is aimed at intermediate video editors who have outgrown iMovie but aren't quite ready for Final Cut Pro. This "semi-professional" editing suite has full support for high definition HDV and AVCHD video. It supports multiple video layers, effects and transitions, color correction and matting. Also included with the software is Live Type for title creation. This is an excellent choice to address your video editing needs on the Mac OS X platform.

Key Features

  • Advance your moviemaking: Work with DV, HDV, or AVCHD footage - or all three - in a single Timeline, sculpting your video quickly and precisely using pro-level editing and trimming tools.
  • Take the next creative step: Send your iMovie '08 projects to Final Cut Express 4. Then take advantage of its additional creative options - professional editing tools; the new, Open Format Timeline; over a hundred real-time effects & transitions; animated titles; and multiple video and audio tracks.
  • Add dazzling titles: Quickly and easily create dynamic, animated titles for your next video project using LiveType 2.1 and its revolutionary LiveFont animated font technology. Tight integration means that when you make a change, LiveType projects automatically update in Final Cut Express 4.
  • Mix sound effects and voiceovers: Mix up to 99 audio tracks in your movie and further enhance your audio with real-time volume and audio filter adjustments. For documentary-style projects, use the voiceover tool to record narration in an audio track while your video plays.
  • Share your movies: Author a DVD using iDVD, export your movie in QuickTime for your website, or send it back to your camcorder or deck for a fast connection to your HDTV home theater system.
