I Heart iMovie at InformIT

I wrote an article for InformIT, which is now online: I Heart iMovie: Why Apple’s iMovie HD Beats Windows XP Movie Maker 2.

Two weeks and six full MiniDV tapes later, I sat down at my PowerBook G4 and fired up a little application that I’d previously launched only once: iMovie. In less than two hours—without any instruction—I’d imported some footage, edited it, added titles and music, and uploaded a one-minute short to a web page for family and friends to view.

InformIT set this up as an informal shootout; you can read Matthew David’s article about Windows Movie Maker (which I didn’t see until it was posted today) here: Battle of the Movie-Making Tools: Why Windows XP Movie Maker 2 Beats Apple’s iMovie HD.
