iMovie 6 and iDVD: The Missing Manual: From Home Video to Pro Video
Sebastopol, CA--"The world of video is exploding," according to award-winning tech author David Pogue. "People are giving each other DVDs instead of greeting cards. People are watching each other via video on their web sites. People are quitting their daily-grind jobs to become videographers for hire, making money filming weddings, and creating living video scrapbooks," adds Pogue. "Video, in other words, is fast becoming a new standard document format for the new century."
And anyone with iMovie, a camcorder, and Pogue's new iMovie 6 and iDVD: The Missing Manual (Pogue, O'Reilly, US $34.99) is more than ready to embrace the new world of video.
iLife '06 comes with powerful new tools for editing both standard and high-definition video, and this book covers all the big-ticket improvements in iMovie 6 (full-size previews, themes, time-lapse recording, automated Magic iMovies, and more) and the unheralded but fantastic smaller tweaks that make it better than ever. Along with step-by-step video editing guidance, there's an invaluable book-within-a-book on iDVD for making home DVDs look as slick as commercial Hollywood productions.
In full color throughout, iMovie 6 and iDVD: The Missing Manual contains hundreds of undocumented secrets for creating and distributing professional-quality films from the comforts of home. A complete course in Macintosh filmmaking and DVD design, it includes:
- Chapter 4, Camcorder Meets Mac, is available online
- More information about the book, including table of contents, index, and author bio
- A cover graphic in JPEG format
