Crammed with new features-but lacking any documentation to speak of-iMovie 3 is a tool just waiting to be tapped, and this Visual QuickStart Guide provides the key. If you're already familiar with Apple's video editing software, you'll welcome the easy-to-find coverage of all of iMovie's new features-including seamless integration with other iLife applications, added visual effects, powerful new audio controls and effects, chapter markers, and instant DVD export. If you're using iMovie for the first time, the accessible, step-by-step format will have you making movies in no time. Using hundreds of screen shots (all updated to reflect iMovie 3's new interface) and tips gleaned from personal experience, noted Mac author Jeff Carlson covers all the bases here-from shooting and capturing footage, viewing clips, and working in the iMovie timeline to using special effects and transitions and adding sound, music, titles, and narration. New in this edition is a chapter focusing on working with still images, thorough coverage of interoperability between the other iLife applications, a valuable troubleshooting section, and much more.
