Well, here’s some good news. It’ll only work on the latest iMovie announced yesterday, which means a $49 upgrade or the purchase of a new Mac, but it’s good nonetheless.
When Apple radically changed iMovie between the ‘06 and ‘08 releases, one of the biggest criticisms was the abandonment of the traditional editing timeline. […] Well, if you’ve been pining for a “real” timeline, it’s time to re-evaluate iMovie ‘11. With a couple of clicks, you can have it back. Here’s how.
This is very welcome. The difficulty of adjusting to the no-timeline interface, and its audio limitations, has meant that I install the older iMovie on all the newer Macs I configure. That may no longer be necessary. I’ll have to get my hands on iMovie ‘11 and play with it to know for sure though.
