Hi there!

Fireworks shots are at infinity by definition, so indeed you'd do yourself and the camera a favor by manually setting it there. In the dark between explosions, etc, it is logical that AF would hunt to find something to lock on. But for "normal" people handheld "social" shots, all auto seems the way to go.

iMovie and Final Cut are Apple Mac software. No idea what are the tools in the Windows world.

Yes, video is real steep learning curve. Feels so much more complex than still photography. The vocabulary is also completely different. Loads to learn. Grateful to now have a good tool to get me going.
