Getting Started with iMovie/iDVD

iMovie http://www.apple.com/ilife/imovie/
When you make a movie, you create a memory that will last forever. With iMovie, you simply arrange your video clips, still images, and music in the order that best tells your story. iMovie makes it easy to share your movies with your friends and family. Screen it on your TV, phone, iPod, or post it on the Internet

Using Magic iMovie
The fastest way to get started with iMovie is with Magic iMovie. Just plug in your FireWire camcorder, give it a title (optional), select transitions (optional), and a soundtrack (optional), and let iMovie do the rest. iMovie automatically rewinds the tape and imports your video from your camcorder, sequentially arranges it in the timeline, and inserts your title, transitions, and your soundtrack so your new movie is ready to play.

iDVD - One of the best ways to share your movies and photos is to burn them to a DVD. A DVD can hold hours of video, thousands of photos, or a mix of both, so you can fit a feature-length movie, several short movies, and a handful of photo slideshows on a single DVD. Take a tutorial

iDVD has always made it easy to create beautifully designed DVDs. Now it’s beyond easy. With the Magic iDVD feature, all you have to do is choose a theme and select the movies and photos you want to include. iDVD then automatically creates a complete DVD, unified in design from start to finish, including menu screens, movies, chapter menus and slideshows. You have to see it to believe it. Want to join in the magic? Use Magic iDVD as a starting point and edit from there.
