However, if I judge this as an upgrade from iLife '09, it's extremely weak. Here's what you get of any substance: the ability to better edit audio in iMovie, slightly better full screen modes in iPhoto, really impressive time warping facilities in Garage Band to fix timing, and some very nice guitar and piano lessons which actually show you where you making mistakes. All great features, to be sure. But are these worth $50 if you have '09? Probably not.
The frustrating thing is that the most major feature in this upgrade is just plain silly: they added the ability to make cutesy little fake "trailers" in iMovie. This is apparently their big innovation. You can now replace your boring home movies with one of eight or so two minute jokes that I guarantee you will get old very quickly. Very quickly. They also added a fake news program theme, and a fake sports theme. All very gaudy and over-the-top, even for iMovie standards. And not at all useful beyond just playing with them once.
It's pretty clear that Apple's focus has shifted away from Mac OS X and iLife and on to the greener pastures of iOS: the iPad and iPhone. In fact, from now on we'll likely see features come first to their consumer devices, and then later to their desktop computers. I'm afraid the days of getting truly major updates to iLife every two years is a thing of the past.
So, as an upgrade from '09, I give this one or two stars at best. If you're upgrading from '09, I hope I've saved you some money. Otherwise, this is a great software package, easily five stars, just not much of an improvement from what you could get two years ago. As such, I'll split the difference and give the package three stars.
I've used Roxio and Titanium until was I frustrated and found it very slow in rendering a disk image.
The iDVD application was swift, painless, intuitive (drag and drop) and very forgiving.
It really comes in handy, when I'm scrambling to assemble my collection of Christmas gifts and I want to burn a disc with my latest collection of video clips and slideshows for family members who don't have any internet access, but do have a DVD player.
I'm very disappointed that Apple chose to drop this application in 2012.
iLife 11 has a copy of iDVD included. It will try to update, but then you will get a message from Apple that says it was discontinued and there is no support (or updates). No worries, it still works. Press on!
There was an old post on the Apple community web site that suggest a free version was available for download and that is no longer the case. I tried and finally bought this set. I'm not crazy about the other programs on it, but the iDVD is worth every penny!
I made my first DVD to test it out, to make sure it would play on my Samsung DVD player & it did.
It worked just like a movie you would purchase where it shows the options to PLAY MOVIE & SCENES.
Also, I wasn't aware if this but iMovie has TONS of free sounds & music. That, or, the music imported to iMovie when I installed iDVD because the folder that contains all the free music & sounds says iLife. Background music that I've heard in commercials & on youtube, are in this. I was about to purchase sounds bites from a 3rd pty.
I highly, highly recommend this! It worked flawlessly for me! You just have to take a little time to learn it.

Thus it is totally useless. A total ripoff.
