Overview

Bursting with new features, Apple's iMovie '09 is vastly more usable and complete than iMovie '08 — amazing right out of the box. But the box doesn't include a good user's guide, so learning these applications is another matter. iMovie '09 and iDVD: The Missing Manual gets you up to speed on everything you need to turn raw digital footage into highly creative video projects.

You get crystal-clear, jargon-free explanations of iMovie's new video effects, slow & fast motion, advanced drag & drop, video stabilization, and more. Author and New York Times tech columnist David Pogue uses an objective lens to scrutinize every step of process, including how to:

  • Organize your videos just like your photos, and precisely edit with ease
  • Work on multiple iMovie projects at once and drag & drop clips among them
  • Integrate with other iLife programs to use songs, photos, and an original sound track
  • Output your creation to a blog, its own web page, or as a video podcast with iWeb
  • Understand basic film techniques to improve the quality of the video you bring to iMovie

From choosing and using a digital camcorder to burning the finished work onto DVDs, posting it online, or creating versions for iPod and iPhone, iMovie '09 & iDVD: The Missing Manual helps you zoom right in on the details.

    BREAK A LEG

    Do you want to know more about iMovie and iDVD? If you do, then this book is for you! Authors David Pogue and Aaron Miller, have done an outstanding job of writing a book that is designed to be used as the ultimate iMovie and iDVD manual.


    Pogue and Miller, begin by showing you how to transfer your footage into iMovie; edit your clips; place them into a timeline; add crossfades and titles; work with your soundtracks; and, more. Next, the authors present step-by-step instructions on how to take your cinematic masterpiece on your screen to the world, by looking at how iMovie excels at exporting your work to- the Web; YouTube; an iPod or iPhone; an Apple TV; a QuickTime file on your hard drive; or, iDVD for burning. Finally, the authors cover the world's easiest-to-use DVD design and burning software.


    This most excellent book explores each iMovie feature in depth; offers illustrated catalogs of the various title and transition effects; offers shortcuts and workarounds; and, unearths features that the online help doesn't even mention. More importantly, it provides a complete course in film editing and DVD design.
