Users can make beautiful HD movies anywhere with iMovie, the fun, feature-rich video editing app designed for Multi-Touch. Create a video postcard of your day at the beach and publish it to the web — without ever leaving your spot in the sand. Or make a movie of your child’s birthday party and send it to your parents — while the party is in full swing. With iMovie, you can start several projects and finish them whenever you want and wherever you are.

Made for Multi-Touch.
• Tap to add or record video right into your project.
• Drag to trim the lengths of video clips and photos.
• Swipe to split video clips.
• Pinch to zoom the timeline and get a closer look.

Give it a theme.
• Choose from a selection of themes including Modern, Bright, Travel, Playful, and News.
• Each theme includes a matching set of titles and transitions – plus its own soundtrack.
• Instantly change themes or swap themed elements in your project.
• Titles and graphics automatically update with location data from your video.

Add music and photos.
• Select from included music that matches each iMovie theme, or select from your own song library.
• Switch on the audio for video clips and iMovie automatically lowers the volume of background music.
• Add photos from your own library, or take a picture and drop it into your project.
• Customize each photo with a unique “Ken Burns” panning effect.

Share your movie.
• Export your movie in one of three sizes: medium, large, or HD.
• Share your movie on the web in a MobileMe Gallery or on YouTube.
• Send your movie to friends and family in an email or via an MMS message on iPhone 4.
• Easily sync your movie back to your computer.

  1. Now wait a minute. If iMovie works on the iPod touch with half the RAM as the iPhone, then it should also work on the iPad now, which has the same amount of RAM and same processor as the iPod touch. Right? And yes, I know the iPad has no camera, but theoretically……..

  2. @ Synthmeister

    It is widely believed the new iPod touch has 512 megs of memory, just like the iPhone 4. That is why it can run iMovie. I expect that the iPad will either get a quiet upgrade this fall or the change to 512 will take place in the winter/spring as part of a product refresh.

  3. @ Synthmeister and Ralph M

    I don’t think RAM has anything to do with it. Also, this AppleInsider article says the iPod touch has 256mb of RAM

    The reason there is no iMovie for iPad is very simple, and you said it. iPad has no video camera. You’d have to import a video shot on some other device through your computer onto the iPad, just to edit it.

  4. @Urlow

    This logic doesn’t apply to iDevices at all. The basic performance stuff is always the same across all models of a generation.

    And I find the comparison to the 320M rather insulting (as I’m getting one). It’s a $1200 notebook (1000 for the non-Pro). For that price you’ll only find a RECENT dedicated GPU on the Alienware x11 or whatever it is called, which sacrifices CPU for GPU and is kinda a netbook).

    You also forgot to mention that among the memory-sharing GPUs, the 320M is (according to Nvidia) top-of-the-line. 80% increase over my 9400M? Hell yes.
