eZedia has released the third in its series of plug-ins for iMovie 2, Apple's consumer digital-video editing solution.

eZeClip 1.0 creates picture-in-picture and split-screen effects. Users can position, resize, loop, add borders and apply drop-shadows to a QuickTime movie over an iMovie 2 clip. It costs $29.

President and chief operating officer of eZedia, Stefan Embleton, explained: “eZeClip, combined with eZedia's other plug-ins, gives iMovie users special effects and functionality previously only available in professional level products.”

Apple welcomes the release. Vice president of worldwide developer relations, Ron Okamoto, said: “eZeClip is a wonderful addition to iMovie's video editing capabilities."
