While the last version of iMovie gave moviemakers the ability to capture and edit widescreen High Definition Video (HDV) from the new generation of camcorders, iMovie 6 is all about the ease of moviemaking itself. iMovie 6 includes five professionally designed themes with backgrounds, motion graphics, titles and effects that act as building blocks for your projects.
You can preview transitions and stunning new video effects-such as time-lapse video-in real time using the full screen. Or edit audio and add sound effects with a new built-in sound studio.
For presenting your movie, Magic iDVD offers easy-to-use themes including new widescreen options.
Whether you're a professional or an amateur moviemaker, this is amazing stuff.
But if you want to learn the full capabilities of these applications, Apple documentation won't make the cut.
Instead, "iMovie 6 & iDVD: The Missing Manual" is the ideal third-party authority that covers all of these changes through an objective lens.
This witty and entertaining guide from celebrated author David Pogue details every step of iMovie 6 and iDVD production. The book shows you how to: work on multiple iMovie projects at once and drag and drop clips among them; output your creation to a blog, its own web page, or as a video Podcast with iWeb; use "Magic iMovie" to import your video and make a movie for you; integrate with other iLife programs to use songs, photos, and an original soundtrack; and a whole lot more.
From choosing and using a digital camcorder to burning the finished work onto DVDs, posting it online, or downloading it to an iPod, "iMovie 6 & iDVD: The Missing Manual" zooms right in on the details in a clear, concise and understandable manner.
The book also provides a firm grounding in basic film technique so that the quality of your video won't rely entirely on magic.
