13.8. Magic iMovie

Let's face it: millions of people wind up taking camcorder movies, and then never looking at them again. Editing and spicing up those movies is great, but it's work.

In an effort to solve that problem, iMovie HD introduces something called the Magic iMovie—a completely automated movie-assembly feature. You literally connect the camcorder, choose File → Make Magic iMovie, choose the music and options you want, and then walk away. Without any further attention from you, the program rewinds the tape, creates an opening title, imports all the footage, adds a transition between shots (if you've opted for one), backs it all up with music that you choose (at a volume level you specify), and, if you like, hands off the result to iDVD for quick burning to disc.
