FCP X is a high-end video editing application available for Mac computers. In regards to difficulty of use, FCP X is not as complex as similar applications such as Adobe Premiere Pro or FCP 7, but it's definitely more robust than iMovie.
Use FCP X if your project requires:
a high quantity of cuts and media types
extensive variations of text and their positioning
color correcting, basic audio correcting, and video effects
