Do I need 8GB RAMfor iMovie editing on an AirBook?

Ready to pull the trigger to buy the Haswell Mac Book Air. It is for my wife who wants to do iMovie. Some of her movie is pretty big file. In one movie, she can use 20 movie slips and 100 still pictures. She has a hardtime editing on an iPad3 which only has 1GB of RAM.

Should I cough out additional $100 for a 8GB, or 4GB is enough?
