GoPro editing

I have a GoPro Hero 3 Silver Edition and getting a Mac Book Pro at the end of the month. Should I get a different editing program or is iMovie sufficient?

I want the quality of the movies you see on say, Red Bull commercials and such. I know I'm going to have to learn to use it because I'm a noob when it comes to editing, but hey you have to start somewhere.

iMovie that comes on the Mac is decent... i use it more for home movies of our little one and slide shows of pics for the extended family. I have done a little editing with FCPX... my brother's lady friend is great with the program, she does pro movie editing with FCPX...

There are some guys at work who use GoPro's CineForm Studio with pretty good results... and it is free on their website

yeah that's what i think i'll start with. after reading about different programs, i'll get familiar with what i'm doing and then move up if needed.

does imovie have an ability to increase clip quality? i have a clip that's in sorta low light and would look awesome if it was enhanced

No program can increase the FPS. The video will record at whatever FPS you shoot at, in my case it was 30fps. But the program allows you to speed up or slow down the speed of the playback, which is what gives you the effect I have. This video was at 1.75x speed.
