Jeff Carlson has been spending lots of time with the new iMovie ’11, and has discovered a number of useful, cool and largely undocumented features. Jeff discusses the under-publicized return of the timeline (even if it isn’t called a timeline), the usefulness of Movie Trailer and other effects, and then dives into things you didn’t know, including rolling shutter fix, morse code in a theme, and several other minor but tasteful additions. iMovie ’11 still isn’t good with interlaced video; Jeff explains what that means to you and how to work around it, and why iMovie ’11 is finally almost like the long-dead iMovie HD.
