I’ve been thinking on several software programs I’d really like to have. For example I want iMovie Pro. I have and use iMovie, Final Cut Express and Final Cut Pro (HD). They are all good programs. But I want a program with the power of Final Cut Pro and the video capture of iMovie. Yes Final Cut is used by many large budget productions and its clip logging features and batch capture are stunning. However I usually want to stick a tape in and capture all of it or a portion of it and iMovie does a great job of putting them together into clips.
I’ve recently started doing most capture work in iMovie and then editing in Final Cut. However if all this were done in Final Cut it would be possible to have it continue to track reels and tell you where the reel it needs to re-download might be found. Maybe someday.
