Apple updates iLife, iDVD

Apple has released two new updates, one for iDVD and the other for its iLife Media Browser. iDVD allows users to create, customize and burn a DVD for watching on a PC, Mac, or television. With the latest update to iDVD 7.0.3, overall stability of the application has been improved and a number of other minor issues have been addressed. To run the program users will require Mac OS X 10.4.11, or Mac OS X 10.5.6 and later.

The iLife Media Browser update will also improve overall stability of the program, address a number of minor issues, and is recommended for all users of Aperture, iLife 08, iWork 08, and people running Mac OS X 10.5.6 or later. Both updates can be found on the Apple Support Downloads page with iLife sized at 2.6MB and iDVD being 27.4MB.

    What about Hi Def??

    At MWSF 2007, SJ declared the 'year of the HD'. Now, two years later, we still can't author Hi-Def in iDVD. In Windows, there are several cheap titles that will offer editing of HD video and authoring of Blu-ray formatted content, redy for burning on regular DVDs for HD playback in Blu-ray players.

    On Mac, you have to buy Toast 9 (or higher) and even then, workflow is extremly clunky and unintuitive.

    Please, Apple, come on! Make your iDVD (or iBlu-ray, or whatever it becomes) worthy of our HD camcorders!

    2nd the What about HiDef

    I 2nd the motion on the "What about Hi Def??"

    SJ last said that Blue-Ray was like jumping through hoops for Apple in getting through all the legal stuff. Well since you can do it in Toast 10Pro NOW the only people jumping through hoops here is US!!!

    If you can do all this on a Windowz PC right now, and Play Back too, it strikes me a bit funny that Apple whohas blazed the trail for all this in the first place is still holding back on the Blue-Ray Everything.

    I hope you feel better Steve.
