Gee Three has announced Slick Transitions and Effects, its second collection of transitions for iMovie 2.

iMovie 2 is Apple's easy-to-use video-editing application for consumers. It comes bundled with iMac DVs, iBooks, PowerBook G4s and Power Mac G4s.

The collection offers 50 new iMovie 2 effects. Many of the transitions have soft edges for smooth dissolves and "organic" flows. The plug-ins are compatible with iMovie 2.1 for OS X.

New transitions include vapours, washes, spirals and fluid ways to change between video clips. New effects include a Filmstrip, heart frame (illustrated), oval frame and letterbox. The collection costs $29.95 and is available direct from the company.

Gee Three president Bruce Gee said: "We began to release these iMovie collections as a bit of fun. It's a good collection for iMovie editors."

The package was developed in conjunction with Pixlan Software. Michael Feerer, president of Pixelan Software, said: "We are delighted to bring our industry-standard 2D visual effects to iMovie users."
