Video color correction!

I wasn't sure of how the new iMovie 08 would perform at first, but after using it for a while, it is awesome! In the past, I used iMovie 06 for basic videos and Final Cut Pro for more advanced projects. I will probably continue doing this in the future, but the basic editor will be iMovie 08. Color correction features in FCP are really advanced, to the point where most users cannot use them. It was easier to use in iMovie 06, but it also didn't do much. The new way of doing it in iMovie 08 is much superior and easier than in the previous version. You still cannot do what FCP will let you do, but you can make everything look great easily. The options are very similar to what was already there in iPhoto. These effects in Final Cut Pro also usually require you to render before seeing the full result, it's not the case with iMovie and it is because it is less advanced but it is also probably why the system requirements are pretty high. These "Video Adjustments" will let you tweak the contrast, brightness, exposure, saturation and levels. What is missing compared to iPhoto is the possibility of comparing with the original by pressing "Shift" as well as the copy/paste feature.

To get to this color correction window, press the icon at the right in this toolbar:
