Thought about iMovie, but according to Apple, iMovie will only import motion jpeg format movies from the EM-1 (does not list the TG-3 camera as supported) and not H.264 which I understand is a better format (better compression and therefor smaller files) and a newer standard.

I don't and never have had an Apple computer.  So, I really don't know how they work.

However, I participate on a camcorder/videography forum where many have posted some confusion about iMovie and Apple's support of later video formats, especially AVCHD/H.264.

My first suggestion still holds.  Don't do as I did and investigate all the options looking for the best.  You'll get further ahead, and sooner, if you focus on a one editing system.  Don't try to learn a little about several of them.  Instead, master one first.  Later you can try all the others.
