I'm assuming you'd have to sync videos over from iTunes. If so, what's the point?

It's for editing video you've shot on your iPad 2 or iPhone 4. In fact, you cannot edit video you've synced from iTunes - only what's in your camera roll.

That's the point.

How would you get the video you've shot on the your iPhone 4 to the iPad?

I guess I'm having hard time seeing why someone would carry the iPad around to shoot video.

You don't. You would have shot that on the iPad 2 in the first place.
Maybe we should wait and see how the app actually works on the iPad before making assumptions like this. You can already import photos and video from the iPhone (or another camera) to the iPad with the camera connection kit, so perhaps iMovie will support adding compatible videos shot on other devices.

What i want to know is if it will have effects and allow you to add transitions, scene cuts with credits or text, and basic stuff final cut has?

So you're sitting somewhere reading a book. All of a sudden your kids do something adorable. Or you brought it with you to amuse yourself while the family drives someplace. Then you see something wonderful. Or you never thought you would care about taking videos, certainly not enough to spend $100 on a video camera, but it's already built into the iPad. Turns out it's really kind of fun.

Does this help?
