iMovie '11 Announced!

Apple's iMovie team has been hard at work! iMovie '11, available today, has some really nice new features. My three favorites, in order:
  1. New audio editing tools. It took some time, but it looks well worth the wait. The audio editing tools look easy to use but also seem to get out of the way when you don't need them. And audio effects that make my kids sound like Darth Vadar? Can't wait.
  2. People finder. If it works as advertised, it will some projects, like birthday tribute videos for my kids, that much easier. I love Faces in iPhoto.
  3. One-step effects. I've used the flash and hold effect a lot on past projects. I'm so excited to be able to do it seamlessly with one click.
Of course, there's still the movie trailers, new themes, and all kinds of new publishing options. Can't wait to get my hands on it.

Hi Aaron, First off, I just finished iMovie '09 and iDVD. Great job. It was a ton of help and very easy to read. Do you plan on writing any books for iMovie '11? Or will you be posting any "how to" articles on your blog about cool features in '11? I think I might want to upgrade to '11 but, having JUST learned '09 (which I'm still learning), I'm hesitant to make the jump without a guide like yours. Any advice?
