iMovie Trailer Feature Won't Let You Use Real Studio Names

iMovie Trailer Feature Won't Let You Use Real Studio Names

Apple has blocked the ability to use real studio names for its iMovie Trailer feature just launched as part of iLife '11.

TUAW reports, As you can see in the picture, Tarik tried to input Universal for the "studio name" field. iMovie detected this, and substituted the hyphens. Further, he reports you're able to use the string 'Universal' in other themes, just not in this one. Was this accommodation reached directly with Universal, perhaps to prevent any derailing of Universal's deal for distribution on iTunes and Apple TV?

After further testing users found that iMovie won't allow you to use the word Universal on top of the Globe, or Paramount on top of the mountains with stars.


So tricking your friends into thinking you're really in an upcoming movie may not be possible.
