iMovie 6 Hacks: Theme in Peach
by Erica Sadun
So my copy of iLife 6 arrived in the mail this morning and I spent a few happy hours hacking around the new version, playing particularly with the new Themes feature. Updating the themes proved very easy, particularly with the delicious Quartz Composer.
I played around with "Reflection - White", converting it easily into "Reflection - Peach", but was unable with the time given to figure out how to add new Themes or to create additional options for a given theme.
The secret? Descending into /Library/Application Support/iMovie/Themes/ReflectionWhite.bundle/Contents/Resources and gussying up the Open.qtz file. Had to import one background image (in this case, a basic peach backdrop, although I originally used a Google Earth image of our old house) and set three colors for the fades.
Here's what it looked like when all was said and done.
It looks like these steps work for creating a new theme. I'm not sure they're all necessary.
