I hope that they continue iMovie 06 compatibility from Leopard onwards. I just put iMovie through some flaming hoops at the Sherway store and I'm unimpressed!

NO timeline editing anymore.

DUMMIED-DOWN audio editing -- NO overlapping of files, NO audio level editing, and uncooperative audio region editing.

NO MORE ANIMATED THEMES! WTH??! They were a major differentiator compared to other consumer editing suites, and carried a consistency through to iDVD's themes. If anything, I was hoping that the animated themes would have been blessed with greater flexibility in iMovie 08, such as user definable length, number of drop zones and more flexible titling. Instead, they're KILLED OFF! :mad:

Some of the pros with iMovie 08 are (as I see them):

Once you get used to its UI, selecting sections within a bulk clip (deleting undesired portions around a certain range of footage) is easier.

Ken Burns is easier to manage (not that it was bad in the first place, however)

All in all, I'll stick with iMovie 06 as long as I can -- and you can bet that any 3rd party plug-ins you purchased for iMovie will be severely BROKEN :rolleyes:

Update: you also cannot put in iDVD chapters at precise points via iMovie any more! You have to put them in via iDVD itself, and those are only placeable using a default time interval.

Unacceptable! You can voice your complaint with Apple if you like.
