You fill out your outline, for example, what your movie's studio name is going to be and who's the director, and then you tap on the storyboard and you have a visual storyboard of the piece you're creating where it tells you exactly what shots you need, like a closeup, an action shot, a group shot, but for the first time ever, you have a device where you can outline and storyboard your video, use the 10ADP camera to record the video, and then play it back on that high-resolution display, it is truly a transformative way to do video editing. iMovie, it's 499, it's a free update to anyone who already has it, and it's also available today in the Apple Store.
