"If you have iMovie open when you plug in your Flip,
it will automatically open an import window. Just click
on the files you want to upload, and they'll go directly into
iMovie. Then you can do your editing and add some effects.

As far as I know, Screenflow only edits what you record with
Screenflow. But you can save your Screenflow videos to your
desktop and then import them into iMovie. That way you can
do more with them."

Yes, I totally agree with what said in the quotations. iMoive is not only a simple tool for movie and video searching and viewing, it also can be used to import and process files. Besides, if you don't want to use iMovie to edit and process Screenflow videos, you can try to refer to a third party video or document image converter and processor to help you.

Ted I am not brainwashed by the Mac cult. I haven't come across technology yet that is without flaws. Its like the machinery I operate. If its a machine, it is going to let you down, and it will be at the most inconvenient moment possible!


Hi Dean,

I was like you, I was a PC fan since the Ps2 IBM in the early 1990's, I had 2 pc and a sony Laptop in my home. I majored in computers years ago, and Bill Gates was king...

But then one day, just 18 months ago, I took a bite at the forbidden fruit, an Imac, now, my PCs are gone, I have 2 IMacs and two Macbook pro.

I know they are not perfect, but they are years ahead of PCs. I only added one piece of software outside the mac family, screenFlow ($69), I do videos, trainings, movies, etc , I can create a training video and in minutes is in Youtube, facebook or viddler, or I can create a nice presentation video and make it into a DVD. No extra software to buy.

When I installed my MIFI, instead going to all the many steps for a pc as shown in the manual, I just plugged it, and voilá! it was working right away.

Updating my operating system was a breeze, and instead paying $220 or so for the top windows 7, I just paid $49 for a more stable and faster system, and the installing..a breeze.

I can create a great presentation, with all kind of cool stuff, and in seconds I can make it into a PDF and/or Powerpoint presentation, I can receive a word document, excel, and powerpoint from any PC, I can open it, read it and correct it and send it back as Word, Excel, and powerpoint to be read by any PC, and I don't need the expensive Microsoft office to do that.

I turn on my computer, and in a very short time I can start working on a project, no long wait..

And rarely goes frozen, no need for antivirus, one day I was "homesick" and for $49, I made my computer into a windows machine, working simultaneously in windows and Leopard, it is like having another computer for $49 plus the cost of Windows 7, but then I realized home was not home anymore, everything is easier in my Mac operating system..I have found computer paradise...

This is interesting. I had no idea I could do that.

But why would you want to use Screenflow rather than
iMovie (or FinalCut) to edit your video?

And why would you use it to edit your audio instead of
Garage Band?

Are there things about Screenflow that make it better or
easier to use than what already comes on your Mac?

If so, please share them.
We may finally get some kick-ass tips for video editing using
a Mac with outside programs.

Thanks Ted, for some killer input.
Screenflow rocks. I just never used it for anything other than
capturing screen sharing video.

P.S. Dean is full of crap. He just doesn't wanna pony up for a
REAL computer.

P.P.S. There's another guy on here that makes an argument for using a
non-Mac, but he runs Linux; which makes it a totally different animal
than a WinDoze box.

I have the exact same tools as you - Flip + Screenflow.

All you need to do is open a blank project in Screenflow, then import your video file, just as you would import an audio file.

A couple of tips:
1) Make sure to resize (drag) the video to fit the whole Screenflow canvas.
2) To make a "blank project," you can record a 1-second video, then delete the video clip from the clip browser at the bottom.

@Dean, good one. :) I gotta say though, having worked in IT for over 15 years, and personally use Mac, Linux, and Windows, I think Mac wins hands down for video editing (but fails on price, as do most things Apple).

Seriously, have you seen Screenflow? I dare anyone to show me a non-pro PC or Linux screencast + video editing program as slick as that.

Hope this helps, Jim
Ted
