I've been using iMovie HD for about a year now, and didn't bother upgrading to iMovie 8 because people told me that it was really bad.. The only problem I have is that I love to use tons of effects in my movies - and there are some which are really missing in iMovie HD. For example- Zooming in & out - almost every program I know has the ability to zoom in and out on clips, yet all that iMovie has is the "key-burn effect" which only works on photos... It's quite irritating. Playing two clips at the same time - you have the option of "cross dissolve"; but that's really not what I'm looking for. I wanted to play two moving clips over one another... I was thinking to invest in Final Cut Studio; but it's quite expensive. My question is: Are there any, like 'effects upgrade' to iMove HD or is there any way I can accomplish these effects? Hopefully I haven't confused everybody Would be grateful if you could reply, or message me if you know anything on this!
