iMovie adopts new PC-friendly video format

Apple on Tuesday released iMovie 8.0.5 [36MB], an update to its free movie editing software bundled with all new Macs. According to Apple, the update improves compatibility with a number of devices and fixes other minor issues, including improved compatibility with camcorders using the iFrame video format and with importing video captured on the iPod nano as well as fixed problems with resizing the iMovie window during playback. The update, available both online and via the Software Update, is recommended for all users of iMovie '09.

The emerging iFrame video format is gaining support in many consumer electronic devices, as it purports to reduce the time it takes for consumers to import, edit and share high quality video. Not coincidently, Sanyo on Tuesday also released the first pair of its Dual digital camcorders that support the iFrame video format -- both of which have a dedicated iFrame video recording mode that uses the same format that is used to edit on a computer to speed up the process.
