overview
So you've got a copy of iMovie HD and iDVD 5,  a camcorder, and plenty of footagebut how do you get all this video footage into a watchable movie? Maybe you don't want  to spend a lot of time learning all the ins and outs of the software, but  just want to get your movie finished. Realizing that many users won't want to waste a single minute reading about all they can do with iMovie and iDVD, best-selling author Jeff Carlson cuts straight to the chase, using simple project-based instruction and big, colorful screen shots to guide them through the process of making their first movie on an interactive DVD. By focusing on that first project, rather than exploring every option and feature, Jeff demonstrates the quickest, easiest, smartest route to cinematic success. Each short lesson builds on the last as users learn how to shoot, edit, and produce their own movies and then distribute them on DVDs to share with friends, family, and colleagues.
