Apple Releases iMovie App

by Marianne Schultz
 

As promised at the WWDC keynote event earlier this month, Apple has released its iMovie app that offers on-device movie editing for the iPhone 4. The app has a host of impressive features, including the ability to apply themes and add music, photos and special effects to videos created with the iPhone 4:

Made for Multi-Touch.

  • Tap to add or record video right into your project.
  • Drag to trim the lengths of video clips and photos.
  • Pinch to zoom the timeline and get a closer look.
  • Slide to scrub through the video in your project.

Give it a theme.

  • Choose from a selection of themes including Modern, Bright, Travel, Playful, and News.
  • Each theme includes a matching set of titles and transitions – plus its own soundtrack.
  • Instantly change themes or swap themed elements in your project.
  • Titles and graphics automatically update with location data from your video.

Add music and photos.

  • Select from included music that matches each iMovie theme, or select from your own song library.
  • Enable ducking to automatically lower the volume of background music and highlight audio from video clips.
  • Add photos from your own library, or take a picture and drop it into your project.
  • Customize each photo with a unique “Ken Burns” panning effect.

Share your movie.

  • Export your movie in one of three sizes: Medium, Large, or HD.
  • Share your movie on the web in a MobileMe gallery or on YouTube.
  • Send your movie to friends and family in an email or via an MMS message.
  • Easily sync your movie back to your computer.

iMovie is compatible only with the iPhone 4 and will not work on any other iPhone or iPod touch model.
