iLife

I found out that I have to take 10 hours of courses at Full Sail before December which is the month I was hired. The list of class offerings was rather limited and since I have to rush to get the credits, I ended up taking a course on iPhoto and iMovie. Course instructors are all given an Apple laptop but I am a lowly Studio Artist so I was never issued an Apple. I showed up for the class with my Motion Computing tablet PC but all the programs discussed were written strictly for the Apple.

Both programs are fairly simple to use. Three other instructors were taking the course with me. I am used to doing video editing using Adobe Premiere Pro. Since I use this comprehensive program, I doubt I will ever see a need to use iMovie. Exporting the movie so it is formatted for uTube is a nice feature however. iPhoto can remove red eye but I have Photoshop which can do so much more. Apple does integrate all the programs nicely so a beginner can organize all their photos and videos easily. Facebook could learn a thing or two about elegant programing from iLife.
