IMovie: Home film studio


It is almost impossible to believe in it, but prior to the beginning of October, 1999 the amateur cinema was practically not. It was impossible technically. And suddenly...

Is presented to your attention the eighth part of a series of articles about iMac. The previous parts you can also find on the AppleInsider.ru pages (part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5, part 6, part 7)

Shortly before October 5, 1999 there was an event which as can seem at first sight, disproves a statement about technical impossibility of amateur cinema. There was one successful project! Something about witches. His realization required 60 thousand dollars (and what was demanded by the sponsor who has provided this sum, I just don't know).

Most likely, Special Event Apple was on October 5, 1999 the very first special event of Apple in the history. And one of the most saturated, interesting and important.

Young and fervent Phil Schiller, healthy and artistic Steve, iMac of new generation (about which I will tell next time), Mac OS 9 and PowerMacintosh G4. Still there were Internet utilities: Sherlock II (as I lack it!), VoicePrint (authorization on a voice), Keychain (well, with it everything well and now) and others. Utilities these and several other technologies called the Internet organizers of Special Event Apple.

A still was iMovie. Main character of our today's narration. It was the software which was delivered complete with some models of computers actually "for free of charge", but compact disks with which willingly bought on eBay for 100 dollars. So was until Apple hasn't posted iMovie on the website for free downloading. About usefulness of the Hollywood magnates at the head of the computer companies Sooner or later someone would think up something similar... The number of video cameras in the world has reached critical level long ago. People removed events of the life, unusual events, behavior of animals (sometimes risking life), concerts and just a view from the window.

was too simple to Imprint the world in the movement... But results disappointed. They easily could be distinguished from professional.

On the camera gets a lot of superfluous. The person - a being inventive, it was possible to edit video by means of two videorecorders connected among themselves, but those who have believed the authors describing this technology and have tried it in practice, quickly came back to services of fast rewind.

Not without reason paid professional video engineers huge salaries. Programs for transformation of crude video into the video, intelligent and pleasant for viewing, cost very much, demanded even more expensive iron, and all this hasn't been designed for the user who hasn't devoted all his life of video.

Steve has devoted to this party of reality a big piece of the life. Pixar, computers and studio... He wasn't a professional video engineer too, but was aware of in what they are engaged. "Has picked up"? Perhaps and - but he surprisingly quickly grabbed an essence. And the life experience has disaccustomed him to self-confidence
