iMovie is part of Apple's iLife suite and lets you view and work with, edit and share your movies. The latest version of iMovie has made a marked improvement in working with large projects, reliability and performance. |
Your movies, clips and photos are automatically organized in the built-in library so they're just a click away. iMovie has an innovative interface that makes it quick and easy to look through the library and to create new movies. With a few simple steps, you can add movies to your site, put them up on YouTube and even create clips for your phone, iPhone, iPod or Apple TV.
iMovie is very popular in high schools. Easy to use with some fun original effects such as titles and scrolling, students can find ways to improve their skills and the quality of their films with this product. The effects palettes can add music, sound effects and simple transitions and uploading video or pictures is simple and fast.
One of the more popular features included in the latest version of iMovie is "skimming". You can see individual frames from your movie by moving the mouse pointer over a video clip icon. If you want to extract a shot from the clip, it's incredibly easy: skim, click then drag the frame you want and drag it to iMovie's project window. Skimming is a great tool for those who enjoy creative video editing.
iMovie supports both standard and high definition videos in a number of video formats including MPEG-2, H.264 and AVI. Although there is no printed manual, Apple provides online help and tutorials.
