Editor Daniel Hollister used to hate iMovie. But from his recent Why iMovie ’08 Matters article, it sounds like the latest version in iLife ’08 is begining to grow on him. He makes a good case for using iMovie for simple productions; “For anyone needing to edit video extremely quickly, this is a godsend.” For a slightly different viewpoint, Mike Curtis wrote a detailed review of iMovie ’08 for Macworld.

The latest version of iLife is available for $79 at the Apple Store.

    Thanks for the link. :)

    In my own defense against possible future scrutiny, I will say that I would never use iMovie ’08 (or any version) for narrative filmmaking or anything similar — but yes, I will be using this for our Macworld videos and other event stuff.

    Nice site you’ve got here, glad to see a good filmmaking blog.

    Not on me. I hate iMovie ’08. I blogged about it and this blog post gets a LOT of hits from google from people googling exactly this: “imovie 08 sucks”.
