    I don't think anyone knows really, but the current iMovie app is 35.1 MB.

    I swear I saw the numbers for this before the guided tours got posted but if I remember correctly Garage Band is 526MB. I could be entirely wrong about that number but that's the only number that I think I saw.

    My apologies... Garage band is 369.5MB and iMovie is 69.1MB.

    I'm very curious to know how imovie and the ipad 2 will handle video files not recorded through the ipad's camera? I'm really hoping I can import dailies in for a scene to preview them and build a basic assemble edit while I'm commuting to get an idea for how a scene is working. That way when I get home and fire up Final Cut I can just get to work already knowing which takes I want to use.

    I'm guessing I'll need to flip everything to h.264 for viewing on the ipad which would be find as I'd want to add burned in timecode for reference.

    My biggest fear is that I'll have to load all the clips through itunes first to get them into the ipad. I hope this is not the case.

    I'm willing to bet this is the case. For me, this is the #1 priority Apple should be addressing with iOS 5.0. The current system is bulky, cumbersome, slow, unintuitive; dare I say, very un-Apple.

    Yeah I'm not going to hold my breath. It wont be a deal breaker for me as I'm not buying an ipad 2 with the expectations of being able to actually edit on it. It would just be a bonus if I could rough out an idea while away from my edit station without it being too complicated of a setup. Already seems by looking the compatible video formats on Apple's webpage I would have to trascode my video to view it which in itself would be a pain in the ass since actually editing h.264 is a no, no...
