When iMovie for iOS 1.2 was announced earlier this year, I was told by an Apple representative that iMovie ’11 would be able to import movies created in iMovie for iOS, the app that runs on the iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch. However, that information turned out to be incorrect: GarageBand was able to import projects created in GarageBand for iOS, but the same was not true of iMovie. (See “New iOS Versions of iMovie and GarageBand,” 2 March 2011.)
It turns out the Apple rep wasn’t wrong, just premature. Today’s release of iMovie 9.0.4 brings the capability to import projects created in the iOS app into the Mac app. That means you can start a project on your iOS device (when the video or your ideas are still fresh, or you just need to kill some time) and bring it into iMovie ’11 for finishing.
