Book Description

11 April 2011 Missing Manuals

Apple's video-editing program is better than ever, but it still doesn’t have a printed guide to help you get started. That's where this gorgeous, full-color book comes in. You get clear explanations of iMovie's impressive new features, like instant rendering, storyboarding, and one-step special effects. Experts David Pogue and Aaron Miller also give you a complete course in film editing and DVD design.

  • Edit video like the pros. Import raw footage, add transitions, and use iMovie’s newly restored, intuitive timeline editor.
  • Create stunning trailers. Design Hollywood-style "Coming Attractions!" previews for your movies.
  • Share your film. Distribute your movie in a variety of places—on smartphones, Apple TV, your own site, and with one-click exports to YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo, CNN iReport, and MobileMe.
  • Make DVDs. Design the menus, titles, and layout for your DVDs, and burn them to disc.

This book covers version 9 of Apple's iMovie software.

4.0 out of 5 stars Missing Manual series are invaluable 4 Dec 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have bought the Missing Manual (MM) books for all the bits of Apple Mac that I do not understand. I could not do without them. It is hard navigating your way through iMovie, the new Lion operating system, iPhoto etc. with NO information given to you by Apple. There are so many things hidden away in the programs that you would never know about. Mac tutorials are not comprehensive enough and easily forgotten. I have this book open beside me as I pin music to the clips, use clip trimmer, and build the movie. MM gives you honest and simple advice - you use transitions and themes with a very light hand after the advice on page 138. Very useful if you want to avoid becoming an Apple clone. This is the 8th in the MM series I have bought, and I have never regretted it.

5.0 out of 5 stars IMovie '11 The Missing Manual. Extremely Helpful 31 May 2011
Format:Paperback
Having waited impatiently for this book to be finally published for nearly three months, I was not disappointed when I finally received it. It is a very practical book and explains all that you need to know in a clear manner. The text is liberally sprinkled with little TIPS that are extremely helpful and to my mind are worth the price of the book alone!

2.0 out of 5 stars Out of Date - be warned! 21 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bought this for my husband who was new to iMovie. The book is very clear and well written but well out of date. Unfortunately when putting things into practice the book's screen shots and instructions did not match reality. In fact the book was disappointingly confusing. Not to be recommended for those new to iMacs and/or iMovie.

4.0 out of 5 stars iMovie '11 & iDVD the missing manual 3 Sep 2012
By faenum
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The majority of the content deals with iMovie '11 and is very helpful when, as I was, moving from a PC and a Windows based video editor to Apple software. The iDVD section of the book is of no value to me because Apple removed the iDVD software from the newest version of their Operating System, Mountain Lion.

4.0 out of 5 stars I'll definitely buy more in this series! 20 May 2012
By kpj
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book iMovie '11 & iDVD: The Missing Manual (Missing Manuals)makes things so much easier than trolling through the websites and fora looking for info on how to do things on iMovie. I haven't finished working my way through the whole book yet but have already learned a lot just from the first few chapters. You don't even have to read every page as you can dip in and out and find things relatively easily when you're trying to do something you haven't done before or aren't sure about. Definitely worth the money if you're new to the application and want answers quickly.
