I have 06 and 08. 06 is FAR superior, but I'd love to be able to chromakey or add layers. How is imovie 11 in terms of effects (compared to 06) and more advanced editing capabilities.
Mainly used for music videos, I hear a tip of playing the track and hitting 'm' on the beat will help set markers for changes to be in time. this sounds convenient.
And how does it handle HD uploads to youtube? do they work? or are they glitchy?
As it's in the middle of the night in New York, I thought I would provide the screenshots on behalf of elikness.

As to other video effects, see this screenshot (the effects are available when double-clicking on a clip, then selecting Video Effect from the pop-up Clip Inspector):
