iMovie HD review

Apple comes out on top in a comparison of iMovie HD to Windows XP Movie Maker 2. In his extensive review -- which largely focuses on iMovie -- Jeff Carlson of Peachpit Press concludes that, "iMovie HD is , and is the first consumer-level editing program to support the nascent field of editing HD footage." Carlson praises iMovie's easy of use and professional feature set. "I sat down at my PowerBook G4 and fired up a little application that I'd previously launched only once: iMovie. In less than two hours--without any instruction--I'd imported some footage, edited it, added titles and music, and uploaded a one-minute short to a web page for family and friends to view.[...] Whether you're shooting vacation highlights, sporting events, or the school play, iMovie gives you the capability to turn that footage into something your friends and family will want to watch."
