iMovie 4.0.1 Improves Performance -- Apple has released iMovie 4.0.1, which improves performance in long projects and fixes a few bugs in the video editing application. The update corrects problems when launching the program and adding titles to the timeline, and better handles projects that used third-party plug-ins which are no longer present. It also includes fixes for pixelated video, corrupted Ken Burns (pan and zoom) clips, and audio loss after emptying the trash. Apple recommends upgrading to QuickTime 6.5.1 and, if you use an iSight as your video input source, iSight 1.0.2. The iMovie 4.0.1 update is a 1.2 MB download, and is also available in Software Update. [JLC]
