    I am to the point that i have to start working with the videos I make. I want some very !! simple editing software I can trim and clip my videos and put a few together then add a little music in the background, WHERE to Start !!! I am a video editing "0" and would really appreciate a little guidance if you have used something that fills my basic requirements. I will happily pay more for ease of use if it makes a difference.

    I am pulling tonights V+ video into imovie and it is taking 30 minutes to bring 4-6 minutes of video into the project window, is this typical ??

    ......I am using a 5 year old MAC mini, I am overdue and thinking of getting a new computer but this one just simply will not mess up or dye, maybe 5 years new technology and more horsepower for video editing will give me adequate reason.

    Here is a first attempt, used I Photo as suggested, Now that I am wanting to fly lower and get some closer up shots of things and places I will have to slow down and fly smoother to get the better shots.
