Studio names censored when using Trailers theme
Apple appears to have placed restrictions on using official studio names to create trailers for movies produced in iMovie '11. When using the Trailers theme with an image of the earth, which looks very similar to the official Universal Studios logo, the software prevents users from placing the word "universal" in the studio name. The word is instead replaced with several hyphens.
The restrictions appear to be limited to specific themes that could be used to produce somewhat realistic copies of copyrighted studio openers. Users can enter "universal" into other themes without encountering any problems, while "paramount" is prohibited from the snowy mountain top imagery that resembles the official Paramount logo.
Aside from the censorship features, iMovie '11 provides new tools for audio editing and one-step visual effects. Users can also take advantage of a People Finder to spot individuals in various clips, while the framerates are now selectable. [via TUAW]
