I Got Acquainted With iMovie

I used to be an avid user of Windows Movie Maker.

I'd piece together a few snapshots and video clips and plonked in some music, added in some effects and captions and voila, I have myself a video production.

Here's one of my favourites:



Today, after a long hiatus due to waning interest, I tried Mac's movie-maker apps, iMovie on my newish Apple.

It was straightforward enough but there is still a lot of the features yet to play with.

iMovie is programmed to get it's input from iPhoto and iTunes, so I first had to ensure the photos and clips I wanted to use have been imported into their respective libraries.

After that it was just a matter of putting in the captions and video effects while synchcronising the music to the transitions.

The video is then compiled into Apple's .mov format. I uploaded it to Youtube under my Kaizendra channel.

So here is my first iMovie video production:




Note: Youtube has increased the time limit of uploaded videos from 10 minutes to 15. And also accepts .mov high definition format.
