My first iMovie

Wow. That was easy. (of course). Not having a digital video cam, I brought in a bunch of photos from iPhoto, and a track from iMovie, and used the famous Ken Burns Effect to make a slide show.

Went pretty easily. MUCH faster than the old way I used to do this. Several years ago I had to do a couple of slide shows, and used Director and Premier. The result was effective, but consumed about 2 weeks of my spare time. That sucked.

With iMovie, I did the same thing in about half an hour. Including the time it took to export a quicktime for use on my .mac homepage...

I didn't take the time to fiddle with the KBE, so it's the stock generic zoom-into-the-middle-of-the-image pan, which isn't ideal for some of these images...

Anyway, check it out here.
