Be sure to watch in HD!
Above is my first attempt at creating something in the new iMovie app for the iPhone. It was shot and edited completely ON the iPhone. This is a testament to the power of the backlit sensor. Although only 5 megapixels (we say that like its VGA), as opposed to it’s rival EVO 8 megapixel.. the quality is superb in low lit situation, both video and still image.
Editing on this phone was a breeze, very responsive and didn’t slow down one bit. Amazingly, it didn’t drain my battery either! The basic necessities are there, and by no means is this a replacement for Final Cut Pro. Overall, I’m thoroughly impressed.
When you’re ready to export, you have 3 options: Medium -360p, Large -540p and HD -720p, all in the .mov QuickTime format. The clip quickly renders and saves to your photo album. The only downside, when exporting directly to YouTube from your Photos on the iPhone, the quality is degraded. In order to maintain quality, I had to sync my phone with iPhoto and export the file from the laptop onto YouTube.com. No biggy, since the sync/file transfer occurs seamlessly.Tags: app, apple, edit, imovie, imovie app, iPhone 4, iphone4, lowlight | 1 Comment »
