IMovie and Final Cut are often used to edit videos by those who have some technical skills and professional knowledge. Both of them have a timeline, preview window, and advanced editing options.

The iMovie is known to be user-friendly that anyone can edit their videos and may look like written by a professional. Final Cut, on the other hand, is made for professionals to create high-quality videos such as wedding videos and commercial ads that some people might find it challenging to use.
