iMovie '09 & iDVD (Missing Manual)by David Pogue
Synopses & Reviews
With iMovie '11, Apple upped the bar for fast, effortless, versatile video editing. Packed with new features, iMovie '11 lets you create your own movie trailers, apply one-step effects like Instant Replay, edit audio tracks with intuitive tools, use themes for news and sports videos, and seamlessly upload your finished movies to sites like Vimeo, YouTube, Facebook, or CNN.
But while iMovie '11 packs a lot in, it doesn't include any printed instructions. In this gorgeous, full-color book, award-winning author David Pogue and Aaron Miller provide a complete course in film editing and DVD design. Whether you plan to create the next indie hit, keepsake home movies, or on-the-fly YouTube videos, iMovie '11 & iDVD: The Missing Manual gives you the guidance and insight you need to exercise the power of your imagination.
Book News Annotation:
Pogue, a technology columnist for The New York Times, has teamed with Miller, author of the Unlocking iMovie blog, to explore all of the features of Apple's iMovie '09 video-editing software. The authors show users how to master the editing basics of the program (including the alpha-channel title trick) before moving onto new features such as video stabilization, frame-accurate editing and special effects. This guide also provides tutorials on exporting videos to the Internet, AppleTV, iPods and iPhones as well as distribution tips for "Hollywood-style" DVDs.

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.
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.
