You get clear explanations of iMovie's impressive new features, like instant rendering, storyboarding, and one-step special effects. Experts David Pogue and Aaron Miller also give you a complete course in film editing and DVD design.

  • Edit video like the pros. Import raw footage, add transitions, and use iMovie’s newly restored, intuitive timeline editor.
  • Create stunning trailers. Design Hollywood-style "Coming Attractions!" previews for your movies.
  • Share your film. Distribute your movie in a variety of places—on smartphones, Apple TV, your own site, and with one-click exports to YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo, CNN iReport, and MobileMe.
  • Make DVDs. Design the menus, titles, and layout for your DVDs, and burn them to disc.

This book covers version 9 of Apple's iMovie software.
