iMovie8 Review – New Video Editing Software from Apple

Last week Steve Jobs announced the new iMacs and iLife 08 which included a complete rewrite of iMovie.

I have used iMovie since it’s inception. While I have long ago graduated to Final Cut Pro and other more professional video editing apps. iMovie 6 HD still remains a favorite time saver and video editing app. 

Since Apple released iMovie 8 they must be working overtime listening to complaints from those who have come to love iMovie’s timeline simplicity. Before you get excited, only to be disappointed. iMovie 8 is not an upgrade to iMovie 6. It is like a weird cross breed between Windows Movie Faker and iPhoto.  In fact it should of just been called something else because – THIS IS NOT IMOVIE! more
