    This is a great resource– thanks for sharing it! I just upgraded to the MacBook Pro and have yet to play around with iMovie, but I’m glad to hear it’s a good option for basic video editing.

    I love my MacBook Pro and iMovie too, just iMovie alone is worth investing in a Mac if you’re going to be doing any video editing. Although I haven’t tried YouTube’s editing features I think it’s great that it’s an option and will be helpful to them as well.

    Thanks for the info Deirdre, I just might check it out!

    Hi Rachael, I feel the same way. I was a PC user for years and only recently switched. What a big difference!! Of course, YouTube’s editing doesn’t compare to a Mac, but it does have some great tools to make a more professional looking video. I had a lot of fun just playing around. Thanks for sharing your thoughts 🙂

    It used to be a lot more difficult setting up and maintaining a video blog. Now I recommend it to many of my clients. I used to refer them to a video production company but over the past ten or so years it’s become so easy to film and edit your own video anyone can do. You don’t even need a camcorder anymore! Many webcams are decent enough for the quality of video that you need for a simple blog. With built in software provided with many computers (like iMovie) there’s no need to spend hours editing or outsourcing that job either.

    I’m preaching to the choir here, but I LOOOOOVE my MacBook Pro! I didn’t realize how easy it is to edit videos until I started using it. I did see the new YouTube options, but since I’ve started to get comfortable in iMovie, I haven’t really played around with it, so this is a great primer, Deirdre. Thank you!
