Any idea what/when iMovie 3.0 will be out? Any rumors on the feature set, enhancements?

What about iDVD 3 ??

The current apps are fine, but I'd like to see a few minor enhancements (like iDVD supporting basic chapter points).

i've been wondering about the release of imovie3 myself. i heard news of it several months ago on several rumor sites, but not a peep since. i'm assuming that it will offer integrated .mac services (which do me no good) but i'm hoping that it also offers more speed, beter sound editing, and 2channel video.

The larger post history you have the more privileges you will have with this site. I think once you reach 20 posts you can start your own threads.

great improvements to the altivec code delivering real time rendering.

thats is the gist of the rumors i read about 2 weeks ago on various sites. not much else was said in these rumors other than imovie 3 being do sooner rather than later and it being for osx only (seems all the iapps are going that way with the next phase of revisions). i forget who ahd the main story that the other sites copied. it seemed legit. i wouldnt be surprised if MW Paris unveiled imovie3. Considering apple and mw an imovie 3 announcement could be the major and only announcement made... but we'll see.

imovie 3

Could be ehanced in a number of ways.

1. Faster speed...everyone will love that.

2. Better Titling

3. Better Audio..iMovie 3 should tap into Core Audio

4. Midi Support...again Core Midi

5. Widescreen option ...cheesy but fun.

6. MPEG4 with .mac features for easy streaming.

I think we'll like it when it comes.

My wishlist would be:

• 2 Channel Video with the ability to do some basic compsiting of clips (maybe bluescreening)

• Finer optimization with support for MPEG-4, which would probably include an easy-to-use streaming solution for .Mac users (Me!)

• iMovie is the OLDEST iApp by a long margin..it's time. I think Paris will see iMovie 3, and new portables. (iBook 13" & 800-900Mhz G3) and GHz PowerBooks with Bluetooth & AirPort standard

it's not cheesy for those who want to make more film type movies. which of course is not likely to be imovie users... but yeah, it's a good option for sure

and i like the pan and zoom idea.... is there an app that does that currently and can save out as a movie file?

Actually iMovie is older than iTunes...overall as well. iMovie was the first iApp introduced if I remeber correctly. but its has been a loong time since its been really updated.

iMovie 3

i think that we will definitely see .mac integration with the app. I also wouldn't mind seeing a widescreen format option.
