    To prove to 'nut and myself really how easy it would be to make a video on the mac with imovies - this took a grand total of 6 minutes to film upload - edit and publish

    :thumbsup:

    not going to win an oscar but I cannot believe how easy it was and I cannot wait to dig out the old baby videos :D

    What a star!

    I'm ashamed to admit I've not really played with anything on mine apart from iPhoto. Poppy uses GarageBand but that's all as far as I know.

    :yes: people underestimate how brilliant iLife 09 and iwork 09 are. They're SOOOOO much nicer than anything I've ever found on windows.

    OK not as amazing as Thomas I'll admit! Be interesting to see what Thomas comes up with when he starts programming :D probably iMovie holographic version

    Seriously - I have tried video editing software on windows a few times and given up

    because

    1. It was very complicated

    and

    2. I always had the impression that I may lose a bit of work or if I didn't like something I did I wouldn't be able to 'undo' it easily


    I suppose I just feel safer with the mac stuff so far and I'm only just beginning to scratch the surface - I am actually now really looking forward to trawling through all the old mini clips we had on our old digital cameras to put together a 'suite ' of their lives whereas before it would have been a major chore and Lisa would have had to have left the house to stop the kids learning some 'interesting' words.

    Just the bit about dropping the music over - that took literally 5 seconds - Thomas loves that bit of music so you click the note button and in the search window type summer and up it comes on all the albums its on then you drop it over the bit of the film you want.

    I am just amazed by the software really I truely am

    :jawdrop:
