I've just tried it out. To be honest, I think iMovie '08 does a much better job. It's just as easy to use, but offers more flexibility, and flawless YouTube integration.

With Picnik and Visigami, it looks like Google (or at least the Google Mac team) are moving away from Google Labs, and more towards Google Code. I wonder if this will lead to better support and more updates for those 20% projects?
