Apple iMovie is a video editing software program that comes with most Apple computers. Along with iDVD, Apple owners can create videos with integrated titles, soundtracks, credits and scene transitions, and burn them straight to a DVD for easy viewing! The iMovie program is intuitive and easy to use, but tutorials are available for picking up extra skills using the advanced video editing menus and functions to create a professional-looking video project using a home computer. Digital media skills are important for presenting in class or business meetings, or to land that new job with a video resume.
In this free video tutorial series on Apple iMovie, videographer and digital media pro Paul Ferguson offers tips and shortcuts for using the iMovie video editing software found on many Mac computers. Ferguson covers importing other videos and images, creating transitions and titles for the project, how to use the iMovie interface, and more sophisticated video editing. He also gives demonstrations of sharing video projects and fine tuning selections and clips.
