iMovie for iOS adds a green screen feature

The latest update for Apple’s iMovie for iOS gives the video-editing app a green screen feature, 80 new soundtracks, ClassKit support, and more. Plenty of other video-editing apps offer green screen functionality, but it’s nice to have the option available within iMovie. The feature lets you remove anything in the background that’s green or blue, and you can adjust the effect with a 4-point mask as well as its strength. To test this out, I took a video from my trip to Hawaii and added it as a green / blue screen over a clip of my beloved Popplio doll....


Enceladus's Ocean Could Be Just the Right Age For Harboring Life

Enceladus, the sixth-largest moon of Saturn, has drawn scientific curiosity for decades. Ever since Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 passed the moon in the 80s, scientists have wondered about the moon-wide ocean that rests beneath an icy exterior. According to a new paper presented at the 2019 Astrobiology Science Conference, recent analysis suggests that the ocean is approximately a billion years old."That's good news for life," reads the abstract of the latest paper by Marc Neveu and Alyssa Rhoden, a research scientist at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center and of the Southwest Research Institute, respectively. "It should have had enough...

Congress probes approval of Trump backer's housing project

A congressional committee is investigating whether the U.S. Interior Department helped an Arizona developer and supporter of President Donald Trump get a crucial permit. U.S. Rep. Raúl Grijalva is leading an investigation into the proposed 28,000-home development. The Arizona Democrat chairs the House Committee on Natural Resources. The committee set a July 29 deadline for the Interior Department to turn over documents on the project. A retired U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service official told the Arizona Daily Star that he was pressured in 2017 to facilitate the permit at the environment's expense. CNN reported that records show Interior Secretary David...

Scientists get peek into how some fish change sex as adults

If in the beginning there was male and female, fish seem to have forgotten the memo. For nearly 500 fish species, including the clownfish in "Finding Nemo," the great divide between sexes is more like a murky line: If circumstances call for it, the fish can swap their sex, with females turning into males in some species and males turning into females in others. People think of sex as being fixed, said biologist Erica Todd from the University of Otago in New Zealand, "but there are so many fish that can push it in the other direction." Scientists have known...

The company tweeted that the crews of the 747 and a chase plane reported a clean release . The test did not involve ignition of the rocket motor. The company founded by Richard Branson will...
