The Mac brings us a movie making system that is so easy to use; you can now make movies of high quality just like a pro. No need to pay huge fees on video editing because iMovie provides you access to incredible features that greatly enhance your movie making experience. To start, you must familiarize yourself with all the features the iMovie offers in order to maximize your use and be more creative with your own movies. By knowing the features, you can isolate the effects you want done and work with a more organized plan in making your own movie.
iMovie'11 (Version 9.0) was released on October 20, 2010 as part of the iLife '11 package. It has the ability to make trailers for home movies, more control over audio, instant replay and flash and hold effects, facial recognition, news themes, and the ability to watch the video on a Mac, iPad, iPhone/iPod touch, or Apple TV, as well as sharing on Facebook and YouTube. It now supports the AVCHD Lite format.
Awesome new features in iMovie'11:
1. A resurrected feature is the ability to adjust audio levels right on the clip without having to open a separate editor panel. This can only be done with clips in the Event browser. To access this feature, you need to select clips and then click the auto button in the iMovie toolbar. Apple also brought back audio effects and an equalizer. So now you can apply voice and other enhancements to audio.
2.The process involved in building movie trailers is to include individual clips with one person or a group of people in them. The new iMovie helps streamline that process with what is called People Detection. This not like the Face Detection feature found in iPhoto. It doesn't try to find individual unique faces, it simply tracks and tags clips of how many faces are detected in clips, and the distance they are from the camera.
3.The Movie Trailer feature, which allows you to select clips from a project to create a really professional looking trailer. While it's a template-based tool, allowing for very little customization, it's a great way to share parts of your movie in a fast-paced short clip. In addition, a few other themes are included for making news and sports productions.
