The America's Cup tradition started in 1851, when a boat named America won a race around the Isle of Wight in England. The winning team named its trophy the America's Cup and donated it to the New York Yacht Club.
The race has occurred every four to five years since, with a few longer and shorter intervals, and it is always between the current holder of the cup-the "defender"-and a single challenger. Since 1983, that challenger has been determined before each match in the Louis Vuitton Cup race series, in which national teams compete for the right to challenge.

The release of Final Cut Express 4 redefines that tiered structure. Things have gotten more restricted with the new version of Final Cut Express. Final Cut Express creates a new sequence that contains the source video files in the Browser and a movie in the Timeline that has the same edits as in iMovie. Any existing transitions are converted to Cross Dissolve transitions in Final Cut, and the volume levels of the video clips are retained. Everything else is ignored—sound effects, separate audio clips such as background music , photos, Ken Burns Effects, video adjustments, cropping and resize settings all disappear.
