Default Apple Final Cut

Any of you guys work in it for burning Blu Ray disc? How much more of a learning curve is it from iMovie?

Never used iMovie or Final Cut. I have a Mac though, so that's curious...

Anyway, I work quite a bit in Sony Vegas on a Windows machine. I purchased a video (DVD) tutorial package, with 11 discs. I also purchased the Sony Vegas training manual, from the publishers of Vegas. I was using the application quite a bit before I got the training aids, but really had no clue as to the potential of the software. But it is certainly easy enough to do--you just have to practice. I am sure there are forum sites that you can frequent for help, and don't overlook YouTube as a great source of information on those applications.

But if you understand the basic concepts in iMovie, I wouldn't think it would be all that hard to burn in Blu-Ray. It's really only a matter of learning what it is that you "don't know" about the application. Once you know what it is that you don't know, you can just go learn the parts you want to know. I hope that makes sense...

EDIT: I almost forgot--there is a very helpful site that you can subscribe to, for video tutorial products. I use it a fair amount, and it's pretty economical. It costs about $30 to subscribe for a month, and you can subscribe and unsubscribe as often as you want, with a month as the minimum time you need to subscribe. But you should check it out--you might find it very helpful, and as you can see on that linked page, they do have several FC courses.

iMovie is SIMPLE compared to a lot of things in Final Cut, there is definitely a learning curve. I have it, but I have really not ever taken a look at it. I got it from the place I used to work at, we ordered it, and just toyed around with it a little bit, nothing too much.

Thanks
I just took a 4 hour crash course in it and my brain is fried

I used Final Cut Pro for about 3 years...Theres nothing you can't do with it, it's awesome....I've also used Adobe Premiere which is the best video editing software you can get for PC's and it's almost
identical to Final Cut....I've burned regular quality videos though....Never touched a Blu Ray on it
