ENGL-1102 with Dr Ioanes: iMovie tips and tricks

Help with iMovie and how to create a mood in a video

Things to remember:

  • Let iMovie fully import media before you start editing it. 
  • The top layer of video is what is visible/dominant.
  • The program automatically saves for you. Do not export as an MP4 before you are completely finished and ready to turn it in. 
  • Multiple takes are your friend. 
  • Put aside at least two to three hours for editing. If you don't use it all, great. Get a snack.
