Yup. Saw the good news on <a href="http://www.macminute.com/" target="_blank">MacMinute</a>. SWU is cranking away as I post this.

PS: Where's 10.2.4? I guess we'll have to wait a few more days.

Or want resumable downloads.

Anyone else notice iMovie is version 3.0.1 not 3.0? Looks like Apple already had an update for it before it was released.

10.2.4 has been seeded once more to developers. *sigh* More waiting.

Anyone else *lose their iPhoto archive*???

The pics are still there, squirrelled away in their date-derived directories, and the album names are still there (and even the aliases in the album directories), but the library is empty.

*Nice* one, guys. Jeez.

OTOH, I noticed that importing files no longer moves them into the iPhoto Library? Can it be true that we can now have iPhoto manage our files in any folder?

Hmmm.

iMovie 3 ...brilliant. Really big update with amazing integration as promised. Loads of new title effects, faster all round and much cleaner looking. I'm very very happy with it..I can hardly beleive it's a free download. Who says macs are expensive (ok lots of people, but I don't feel it's justified).

iPhoto2 ..little better but still crawls with loads of photos..still, I can go check out the archive function, now where is it? off to look

I like how you can turn off drop shadows in iPhoto. Minimizes distortion and speeds it up a lot, especially when changing the sizes of the previews.

No problem with iPhoto. Transfered my files without a hitch. I quickly made a slide show using a song from iTunes. Very nice. Will try some of the other new features later. I"m on a modem. It took a little over 2 hours to download. Timed out once and I had to re-connect. Software panel is great when that happens as all you do is quit, restart and it picks up where you stopped.

had me scratching my head for a few seconds..because it's too simple Just stick a blank cd or dvd (if you have superdrive of course) in and it appears in iphoto. click on a folder and it tells you how much space it'll take up. very cool. but I'm not sure if you have to create one folder for the disc or wether you can somehow drag and drop them.
Very cool though.

In the read me it specifically says to back up your iphoto library in case of photo transfer failure...people should really read that before installing, and stop blaming apple.

...Just a little tip for some of you who may have dial-up and are wary of downloading large files (like iMovie/iPhoto etc.) , try <a href="http://www.igetter.net/iGetter.html" target="_blank">iGetter</a>

Its shareware/freeware and a real bonus for large downloads - speedier downloading - auto reconnects if connection broken -auto shutdown after download - loads more!

Personally, I have found this little app a must have in situations like this
post #19 of 34
Kihaha: no problems here, and this despite two corrupt jpegs in the library that were there before the upgrade. Bummer.

re: importing folders from the local HD: I dragged a folder of images into iPhoto. It created a folder in my library with the day's date, but there's nothing in it. However, it also created a folder in the library using the created date (maybe last modified, they're the same in my case) and that folder has the images in it. So iPhoto does still does create copies of images in the iPhoto library folder when you import from the local drive.

The new iPhoto is a really good upgrade. Haven't tried the new features on iMovie, will do so over the weekend.

Now, is there a way to export an iPhoto slide show so it can be viewed on a PC? With a (FreePlay) song from iTunes, it looks awesome on my Mac, but I wish I could share it with some of my (still) PC buddies from work. It would be really cool if it could export and burn a slide show onto a cd.

As long as they have QuickTime, you bet! Just go and say Export, QuickTime is the last tab and you should be set... :cool:
post #24 of 34
Wow... this is beyond cool!

Thanks Jared, just exported the slideshow to Quicktime and it worked great! Dissolve effect between photos during playbak is really smooth and the background song sounds amazingly clear too.

I guess I will also export from Quicktime to MPEG for my PC friends who don't have QT installed.

By the way, it is way faster than the previous version and I had no problems with my library of over 2000 photos. Albums and everything else kept as before.

Thanks again for the great (yet simple) tip!

Let's see, I read the ReadMe, I backed up the library, I specifically said it did NOT delete any photos... and other than a mild "Nice one, guys", referring to the loss of the *database* information, I made no comment in Apple's direction.

It was merely a heads up to folks who *might not* follow the ReadMe and decide to blame Apple. Cripes, lighten up, read the post, and stop jumping to incorrect conclusions. <img src="graemlins/oyvey.gif" border="0" alt="[oyvey]" />

Just to recap for those following at home, or with reading comprehension issues: follow the ReadMe, because there can definitely be problems.

I just opened an existing project in iMovie 3 and there is a LOUD buzzing noise in the background, the project is trashed, unless there is a bug fix. I am usng an iMac 800mhz and 10.2.3.

I don't know if the same problem with result if I start the project again and re-import.

Sucked it all down in record time (about 45 minutes all in: love that broadband!), it all seems to work and it hasn't destryoed anything so far. However, I'm a bit neck-deep in another project, so serious playing will have to wait...

For those just about to download IM3 it might be an idea to back up IM2. Reports on the apple boards of some serious problems ( no change there then ) and some wanting to go back to 2. I'd certainly make sure you don't upgrade in the middle of a project although i've had no serious problems after using it quite a lot today.

After hours of playing I'm starting to see small things I don't like, such as transitions on old projects don't work properly when imported, especially cross dissolve.

I downloaded iMovie 3 and iPhoto 2 in a blazing 15 minutes. I opened iPhoto first and played with it quickly. I opened iMovie 3 soon after and marveled at the new interface. The new timeline and just the entire interface is so fluid. Everything works well, the transitions are better as are the text options. Everything is better and that is the point. What a great set of iApp updates.

What will these programs be like in 2 years?!?!?! <img src="graemlins/surprised.gif" border="0" alt="[surprised]" />
post #31 of 34
Ooh, have any of you noticed the improved editing view when in a separate window? It uses a Cocoa toolbar with a lot more toolbar options, including custom crop constraints.
post #32 of 34
iMovie3 is deffinetly to be avoided at the moment. yes the interface and new featurers are great...but try using it.

It breaks any projects imported with a Formac Studio (Loud buzzing noise) and there are lots of other problems listed in the Apple discussion boards.

I am now in the position of re-installing iMovie2 or... waiting for the bug fix. Hmm have done the 85mb down load, I don't wan to delete it, but I can't use it either.

Sorry to be redundant, but in the other thread, I mentioned that someone at the MacNN forums says that extracting the audio from the Formac file will solve the buzzing problem.

Hopefully useable

Seriously, the reports of problems with iMovie makes for depressing reading at a time when the release of the new iApps has been long overdue and people have been expecting so much.

Hopefully all of these problems can be resolved soon and we can all get back to being "creative" again.
