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.
