iLife ’11 is here, and with it comes a host of slick new features for iMovie, including a simple way to create your own Movie Trailers, all-new audio editing, one-step Effects, People Finder and Sports & News Themes. But those are just the marquee features to get everyone excited -- what about the smaller details that might make your daily use of iMovie ’11 a real pleasure?
Are iMovie ’11-created movie trailers really so amazing that Hollywood studios fear that people will confuse them for the real thing? Apparently some of the studios think so, as Apple has blocked your ability to use their company names.
If you think the idea of editing video on a cell phone is crazy, you probably haven’t tried it yet. When you pair an iPhone 4 with the $4.99 iMovie app, almost anyone can capture footage, assemble the best bits, and share the finished results in minutes--all from the palm of their hand. But we understand that even the phrase “video editing” scares off many of you. So we’ve put together a guide to quickly making great videos that’ll help both newcomers and old pros get the most out of this powerful combo of hardware and the software.
Apple issued an update for iMovie for iPhone 4 today in order to fix various bugs in the movie creation software. The $4.99 application for Apple's newest iPhone has proved to be quite a workhorse, even helping to make a short film, but it hasn't been without its shortcomings and bugs. Here's to hoping this update fixes most of the bugs.
As it turns out, iMovie for iPhone 4 isn’t limited to only editing 720p HD video from the new handset, although it does have a few limitations. Meanwhile, some enterprising hackers have already got mobile iMovie running on an iPhone 3GS.
After being introduced during his keynote address at WWDC 2010 earlier this month, Apple CEO Steve Jobs quipped that iMovie for iPhone will be available alongside the iPhone 4 “if we approve it.” And approve it they did -- iMovie is ready to rock your new iPhone 4.
When we first heard about iMovie for the iPhone we knew it was going to be something good. As a matter of fact, it's so good, it needs the A4 chip just to run the app. Meaning, 3G and 3GS users will probably be left out in the dust on this one.
