iMovie actually originates from iLife, a suite of software applications developed by Apple, and used to organize, edit and publish photos, movie clips and music sounds.

iMovie is one of the 3 applications of iLife, the other two are iPhoto and GarageBand. iLife has come to its latest version 11, so does the iMovie. From the first iMovie release in 1999 to the latest iMovie’11 in 2010 and iMovie for iPad in 2011, it gets a lot of new features added and brings a lot of fun to personalize the home videos and Flash files more than editing.
