    I just started using IMovie 08 with my new iMac. I've used similar programs in the PC world, so I'm searching for some functionality that I don't see, or just haven't learned how to use yet. I am using IMovie for a cobination of video clips and digital photos.

    IMovie only comes with a handful of transitions. Does anyone know of a resource for adding additional transitions? Also, it would be nice if there was a "the end" video file to add to the end of the movie, instead of it ending abruptly. Also my last song ends abruptly at the end, as opposed to a mechanism for slowly closing the song out (forgot what this feature is called in other apps).

    If you guys know of a third party app that has enhancements to IMovie; such as transitions and other goodies, I'd love to hear about it.

    Thanks for your help!

    Try downloading iMovie 06 from Apple. It's much more robust though a bit more complicated. I had never used any video editing software before using it and I picked it up really quickly. It has a lot more transitions and you can edit 2 audio tracks as well as adjust their volume so you can fade music out and such.
