Format: Paperback
The “Missing Manual” series, of course, aims to fill gaps that many pieces of software (may) leave by having no – or an inadequate – manual. iMovie The Missing Manual (O’Reilly) looks at Apple’s venerable movie editing software.

The status (in and out of the iLife suite), pricing, versioning, naming, scope, purpose and popularity of Apple’s own iMovie have all varied significantly since the software’s introduction in 1999.

In fact, it was dropped altogether in 2007: iMovie ’08 was an almost entirely different program; and there has already been an iMovie ’11! Now iMovie 10 is available via the MAS for as little as $14.99 (Mac) and $4.99 (iOS).

Add to this checkered history the fact that the media and file formats for the moving image have changed significantly in the past 15 years – chiefly to an all-digital environment. And there is a greater need than ever for a book that will guide the novice in particular, and/or the only minimally-experienced user who wishes to preserve, present and share their movies in the best possible way. Not to mention a source that will guide the user around the ever-evolving layout of the software’s interface, menus and intended workflows.

While such a book must be written with an awareness of the history and technicalities of the field, it’ll only be really useful if it leads users from the puzzlement which caused them to buy the book in the first place to success with the current version of the software because they really can now use it; and use it effectively. A series of sterile descriptions, examples or disconnected help topics isn’t good enough.

iMovie The Missing Manual covers iMovie 10.0 for Mac and iMovie 2.

An excellent, well-written handbook for iMovie 10.0.5. I used it as a reference in teaching a recent iMovie class.

This manual clarified several things for me and introduced me to some functions in iMovie that I didn't know existed. I have struggled without documentation for several months and have managed through trial and error to figure out many of the functions that I needed. While the organization of the print manual is not ideal, It serves my purpose. On balance, I find the manual suffices for my limited use of the iMovie application.

Superb reference guide. Highly recommended. Since the latest version(s) of iMovie has no manual, you can't go wrong with this book.

This is what you need whether you are a novice or an experienced user of iMovie. The changes from iMovie 11 are pretty substantial and this book is a great help in picking up the new tricks. It is my main source for learning the new iMovie.

These books are great-- well written, clear, easy to understand, not afraid the poke fun at the weaknesses of iMovie. The creative layout and abundant cross referencing makes it easy to find the information you want. I keep this beside me as an all around good tech support who never puts me on hold or refers me to somebody else and then disconnects me so that I have to start all over from the beginning.
