Take a look at iVideo. Or if you want it for free Cellulo or Metadata Hootenanny. This needs some more work.

To anonymous with troubles launching : Could you email some information (os version, etc) to us? We have many users using Footlights and this is the first I've heard of this sort of problem.

Mine refused to start up, got the opening screen asking to register or trial, but then the application froze with the "spinning beachball of death" doing its thing. Happened every time I tried to launch!
