iMovie HD 6 + iDVD 6 Essential Training provides a comprehensive overview of Apple's powerful video editing software. Instructor Max Smith teaches everything from essential editing to duplication and distribution of finished projects. No matter what the final goal--editing home videos or producing cinematic music videos for podcasting-- iMovie HD 6 + iDVD 6 Essential Training covers how to reach that goal. Max discusses not only the essentials of how to use iMovie 6 and iDVD 6, but also how to conceptualize a project with storyboards. He demonstrates how to import video and audio from multiple sources, how to choose effective transitions and effects, how to edit for best flow, and how to burn discs or save for Web broadcast. The iDVD 6 tutorials included in this training show users how to choose a suitable theme, how to select photos and videos, and how to create professional DVD menus.
Max Smith has been working with film ever since he realized that it's very difficult to do a close-up in a theater. He is currently a training development manager at lynda.com, helping to create the titles you see in the Online Training Library™. Prior to working at lynda.com, Max was a learning systems specialist at St. Mary's College of Maryland. He had a fancy title that basically meant he taught teachers how to teach using technology.
Max also likes competing in 48-hour film festivals. He finds that the lack of sleep helps his artistic vision become a little more...focused.
