Apple Offers Free iMovie Download -- Citing popular demand for iMovie, Apple has made its entry-level desktop video editing program available as a free download for owners of PowerBook G3 (FireWire) and Power Macintosh G4 machines. iMovie accepts video input from digital camcorders using a FireWire connection and enables budding cinema auteurs to rearrange clips and add transition effects, sound, and titles. Movies can then be exported in a variety of formats. The 19.2 MB download does not include the 160 MB tutorial, and Apple offers no technical support for the Web version. iMovie currently ships with iMac DV computers. [JLC]
