Part: IV Apple's iLife Applications > Exploring the iMovie HD Interface

Chapter 24. Exploring the iMovie HD Interface

iMovie HD lets you take video that you've recorded with a video camera and make your own movies. It gives you the power to be your own movie director. In Hollywood, the process of deciding which parts of the footage end up in the final product is called editing. Movie editors craft the various scenes to fit together—in essence, they're making the same kinds of decisions that you'll make for your iMovie.

The “HD” in iMovie HD stands for high definition, a high-resolution video format that produces higher-quality pictures than standard video. To make use of iMovie's HD compatibility, however, you need to start with HDV, footage captured by an HD-compatible camera.

iMovie also lets you capture standard video (bit HDV) directly from iSight cameras, which were introduced in Chapter 18, “Using iChat AV.” We discuss further details in Chapter 25, “Working with Video and Clips in iMovie HD.”
