Thomas, glad you joined up. some of us dont script or program in this group. could you explain in layman's terms what your utility would do? how would it make my videoblogging process easier. right now I: 1. record clips and download onto my computer 2. edit with imovie 3. export to quicktime 4. post to my blog what Im looking for is one tool that does all this at once. ive got it pretty easy with my mac. i think Pc users got it more difficult.
