iMovie '11 is the flagship software of Apple's iLife suite of applications. Using iMovie '11, you can quickly and efficiently edit, effect, and output your video productions ... all on your Apple Computer!
Produced by Star macProVideo.com Trainer Francesco Schiavon, this comprehensive, 6.5-hour tutorial takes you through all of the major features of iMovie '11. You'll learn key video editing skills like capturing and adding video to your iMovie project, editing clips to make a complete video, color correcting poorly shot video, working with transitions and effects, and a whole lot more.
In fact, there's even detailed sections on advanced video editing topics like HD video editing, advanced audio features, and even green screening! You'll also learn fun skills like adding GPS and animated Maps to your projects, stabilizing shaky video, adding title sequences and credits, and more

Good tutorial for someone who hasn't ever done video editing. Could use a few updates, but most points were applicable to updated version.

This is the best explained, easy to understand and very easy follow tutorial. I also bought the iDVD tutorial (which encouraged me to buy iMovie) and its great too. I just love the way Francesco explains/teaches these tutorials especially for those of us who are new to iMac and are of that 'certain' age! Thank you Francesco so much.
(I would give you a make of a 100 if it was possible)

With a preamble that I am 73 years of age and have been working with iMovie 6 HD since its release I review iMovie 11 and 102 as follows .
1/ The reviewer talks and illustrates the many facets far to quickly forcing many replays to see and understand what is required .
2/ The details , at optimum display size ( I have a 27"HDMI screen ) are not that distinct and , with the speed of the presentation , are sometimes difficult to locate before the speaker moves off onto another topic .
3/The transition from iMovie 6 HD to 11 is not insignificant and I am therefore considering , as I have to learn a new "System", reverting to FC Pro 4 HD

Very clear and easy to follow. I almost didn't watch it because I read that it didn't cover the new audio / preview features of '11. Then I saw the "What's New in iMovie '11" course which does cover those. Put the two together and you have a complete picture of iMovie '11. Great stuff!

I thoroughly enjoy Francesco Schiavon's style of tutorial training and that is why I bought this one. I watched selected sections and I like what I've observed so far. I was also disappointed not to see anything about the Movie Trailers feature in the tutorial, which is why I upgraded to iMovie 11.

I have just started on this version of iMovie. So far, it looks like more of the very high quality work that Francesco has been doing. I hope he updates iDVD soon.

This is just sort of a copy of the iMovie 09 course.
There are NO instructions about the new audio possibilities, NO Trailers.
If you have the iMovie 09 course, this is just a waste of money.
I am VERY disappointed
