This witty and entertaining guide from celebrated author David Pogue details every step of video production with the new version of Apple's iMovie '09. iMovie '09 is bursting with new features. They include video effects, slow/fast motion, direct export to iDVD, a more advanced drag and drop function, additional themes and maps, video stabilization, a library browser. Overall iMovie '09 appears to be vastly more usable and complete than iMovie '08 was. Especially when you consider its killer new feature: software stabilization. This program can do an insanely great job of turning a bouncy, jerky handheld camcorder shot into something smooth and level. iMovie '09 & iDVD: The Missing Manual is the ideal third-party authority that covers all of these changes through an objective lens. This witty and entertaining guide from celebrated author David Pogue details every step of iMovie video production. The book also provides a firm grounding in basic film technique so that the quality of a video won't rely entirely on magic.
