Before I moved to Final Cut Pro X, I did all my editing in iMovie. It’s so easy to use, has great themes to pep up your work and comes for free with your Mac anyway.
I’m very happy with FCPX right now as it allows me to easily sync video and sound from different sources, is able to do most of the heavy rendering in the background and has some more flexibility in transactions, motion and so on.
My most watched videos on Youtube are all cut with iMovie.
