The iOS version of iMovie has been updated by Apple with new trailer sequences, split audio edits on iPad, 1080p HD upload resolution for sharing, and more.
One of the few apps that didn’t get an update just for the iOS 6 treatment (at least not in the release notes), iMovie 1.4 is a fresh version of Apple’s movie-editing application for iPhone and iPad.
Users will be happy to get three new trailers — Adrenaline, Coming of Age, and Teen, the ability to add photos to any trailer and have them automatically animate with the Ken Burns effect, and an option to create split audio edits with the Precision Editor.
Customers must note that Trailers is a feature that only works on iPhone 4 and later, iPad 2 and later, and the 5th-generation iPod touch.
You can now play clips in the Video Browser before adding them to your project, as well as create a slideshow by sharing pictures from iPhoto. New “coaching” tips have been added to the Help menu too.
1080p HD videos can now be uploaded to YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo, and CNN iReport directly from the app. Lastly, audio recordings captured in a project will now appear in the Audio Browser.
“Make beautiful HD movies anywhere with iMovie, the fast and fun moviemaking app that puts everything you need to tell your story at your fingertips,” says Apple.
“Browse and play projects in the Marquee view. Create Hollywood-style trailers or sophisticated home movies in minutes. And share your finished projects with the world – right from iMovie.”
Thanks to this new update, iMovie now officially requires iOS 6.0 or later. The app is compatible with iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (4th-generation), iPod touch (5th-generation), iPad 2 Wi-Fi, iPad 2 Wi-Fi + 3G, iPad (3rd-generation) and iPad Wi-Fi + 4G.
