“I’ve heard from reliable sources that Apple will offer a significant update to iMovie at next week’s Macworld. It will largely focus on Internet video in the Cloud for the YouTube generation,” Seth Weintraub reports for Computerworld.
“I’ve heard that iMovie will largely (if not entirely) be a Web Application and Apple would offer its users the ability to ‘upload your movies to us and edit them there,'” Weintraub reports.
“I am not certain if this means that iMovie is now entirely a Web Application or if Apple is offering a “Cloud” component to its iMovie application,” Weintraub reports. “iMovie in the Cloud would also offer users the ability to easily view their movies on iPod Touches or iPhones. If the application is entirely Web based, it means that potential customers include the ‘other 90%’ of users who use Windows.”
MacDailyNews Take: Make that 88.68% and dropping, buddy.
Weintraub continues, “Apple is largely believed (by me at least) to be moving its iWork applications to the Cloud as well. This would tie in nicely with the new iMovie’s Web Applications. Imagine editing a movie in iMovie online then importing it into a Keynote presentation online. This would be a great feature.”
