15.5. The Effects Pane

As noted in Chapter 14, iMovie makes it easy to play clips in slow motion, fast motion, or backward. But that's just the beginning; the Effects button summons a panel full of additional visual effects that you can apply directly to your footage. And if these don't satisfy your hunger for effects, other software companies have had a field day dreaming up new special effects that you can buy and install as plug-ins.

Some are designed to adjust the brightness, contrast, or color tints in less-than-perfect footage. Most, though, are designed to create actual special effects that simulate fog, rain, earthquakes, lightning, flashbulbs, and bleary-eyed bad LSD.
