iMovie 2 is yours and it owes you a living, or at least a good-looking edit of your sister's wedding. Underrated and underused, iMovie sits dormant on too many Macs. It's time you started using it to begin your climb to Hollywood, or just to transform your holiday videos into something more watchable. What's more, it's time more advanced digital video users realized just how useful iMovie can be.

The cut-down simplicity and speed of iMovie make it the ideal companion for professional filmmakers making rough cuts. Equally, the intuitive nature and fact that it's free make it the best choice for the home user, or underfunded aspiring filmmaker. This book will teach you to fully appreciate and harness the power of iMovie 2.
