Exactly what does this update fix? I have iLife 06 applications, yet a 8MB+ download showed up in the Software Update.

i got this email from apple.
Dear .Mac member:
Over the last several weeks we have enhanced .Mac Web Gallery with a variety of new features. Many of these will require that you update to the latest versions of iPhoto ’08 and iMovie ’08. Read below for more details.



Apple TV viewing.
Web Gallery is now integrated with Apple TV so you can view any .Mac member’s public photos and movies right on your widescreen television. Just choose .Mac in the Photos menu and enter a .Mac member name.


Full-size JPEG downloads. Using iPhoto ’08 7.1.2, you can now choose to let visitors download your full-size JPEGs (highest resolution), or images optimized for 16-by-20-inch prints (smaller file size).

Standalone photo albums. Also using iPhoto ’08 7.1.2, you can publish standalone albums that do not appear on your Web Gallery home page. These are ideal for sharing photos intended for a select audience.

Password-protected movies. Using iMovie ’08 7.1.1, you can now require visitors to enter a password to view or download specific movies from your Web Gallery.

Web Gallery subscriptions. Visitors can now subscribe to your entire Web Gallery with a single RSS feed. The feed is updated any time new photos or movies are added, so subscribers can stay up to date automatically.

Aperture support. Aperture 2.0 users can now publish directly to .Mac Web Gallery. You get all the publishing features of iPhoto ’08, plus an option to allow visitors to download your original RAW files.

We hope you enjoy these improvements to .Mac Web Gallery. Thank you for being a .Mac member.
Sincerely,
The .Mac Team


i love now that i can password protect my movies. i was wondering why it took them this long to do that.

Unfortunately it doesn't fix horrible video quality in iMovie.

If you have been downloading additional codecs, it may be one of the downloaded codecs that is causing this. There's a post somewhere (wasn't my issue) where the person removed a handful of offending codecs and the issue went away.

Just an FYI...

iMovie in iLife6 is very good, Imovie8 is a stinker

it seems they made a big mistake with the poor job iLife 8 dose with iMovie.....hopefully the smart guy at Apple will get it right in iLife9? iLife6 iMovieHD works amazing

iMovie quality is great.

Like all consumer video apps, the computer preview / workfile version is not as high quality as the DVD version.

If you export iMovie videos to DVD, it looks great.

No, it doesn't. You might have better experience if you use AVCHD camera, but for DV-video it's using single field processing (even with video shot in progressive mode) also on export. So we lose half of the resolution and all diadonal lines look jagged.

iMovie 08 is the equivalent of a gift-wrapped box with dog poop inside.

It's only purpose is to produce edible garbage for YouTube consumption. Nothing more.

iMovie HD was (and is) head and shoulders above that 08 nonsense.

Slightly off-topic:

I am using iLife 06, but for some reason I keep getting iLife 08 related updates, such as the iLife Support 8.2, in software update. Is it because I've installed the iWork 08 trial?
