Yesterday at the NotSteveNote, Apple introduced a new iLife, along with new iWork and MacBook Pros. Not a ton of excitement overall, but the new iMovie has some interesting improvements.
Personally, I really liked iMovie 08 – I thought it was a perfect product for folks getting started in video. Not many people seemed to share that opinion though, so iMovie 09 brings back a lot of the feature that people missed from iMovie 06, while retaining the new new interface and editing style. Apple’s iMovie page gives the full rundown.
A few things they didn’t mention at the keynote: green-screening, flip minoHD support, and archiving of file-based media. Here’s hoping the Final Cut team is paying attention (assuming they still have jobs).
