OiReilly & Associates has published a new book aimed at iMovie users, "iMovie 3 & iDVD: The Missing Manual". Written by David Pogue, the book is designed as a help resource for the ins-and-outs of iMovie 3, focusing on iPhoto and iDVD integration. According to OiReilly & Associates:
While a car is an essential component of a memorable road trip, a map--though somewhat smaller in scale and price tag--can steer you clear of dead ends, intractable terrain, and save hours of driving in frustrating circles, not to mention your marriage.
Likewise, one handy, inexpensive guide can make the difference between soporific home movies that take far too much of your life to produce and oeuvres that your audience actually enjoys watching: David Pogueis "iMovie 3 & iDVD: The Missing Manual".
Punctuated with Pogueis trademark humor and strewn with bibelots of information found nowhere else, "iMovie 3 & iDVD: The Missing Manual" puts you on the fast track to quality filmmaking. The book covers every step of iMovie video production, from choosing and using a digital camcorder to burning the finished work onto DVDs. Videographers of all levels also gain a firm grounding in basic film technique.
This new edition shows you how to bring in and send out movies, pictures, and sound; for example, you can import audio from iTunes and images from iPhoto, and create chapter markers in movies that automatically turn into scene selection menus in iDVD. In addition, the book examines and explains all the new visual effects, audio controls, and sound effects. Itis an all-in-one crash course that will help you maximize your enjoyment with iMovie 3.
You can find more information about the "iMovie 3 & iDVD: The Missing Manual" at the OiReilly & Associates Web site. The book is available for US$24.95.
