Video: Using the exercise files

If you are a premium member of the lynda.com Online Training Library or if you are watching this tutorial on a DVD-ROM, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. The organization of the exercise files for this title is pretty basic. As you can see we only have two folders, iMovie exercise files and iPhoto exercise files. There are no exercise files for GarageBand or iWeb included with this tutorial. You will find that the features I show you in those applications can be easily applied to or sampled in your own projects. But for iMovie and iPhoto there are some exercise files that have been designed to showcase specific new features. So if you want to use the same files I'm using in those videos, feel free to add those files to your iPhoto and iMovie libraries.

With the release of iLife '09, Apple has introduced intuitive new features for organizing, editing, and sharing movies, music, and photos. Instructor Garrick Chow demonstrates the wide range of enhancements to this already easy-to-use suite of programs in iLife '09 New Features. He explains iPhoto's new ability to organize and search images using face recognition and geodata, and moves on to iMovie, where he explores precision editing tools and real-time video effects. Garrick also covers GarageBand's new built-in music lessons, as well as iWeb's new ability to publish to any web hosting server. Exercise files accompany the course.

Topics include:
  • Tagging a photo with geodata
  • Using the new iPhoto editing tools to enhance images
  • Sharing photos with Flickr and Facebook
  • Stabilizing video in iMovie to get rid of the "shaky cam" effect
  • Using green screen effects with iMovie
  • Exploring GarageBand's new amps and effects to use with a real guitar
  • Accessing GarageBand's built-in music lessons
  • Publishing finished projects with iWeb via FTP
  • Integrating iWeb's new widgets into web pages

Using the exercise files

If you are a premium member of the lynda.com Online Training Library or if you are watching this tutorial on a DVD-ROM, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. The organization of the exercise files for this title is pretty basic. As you can see we only have two folders, iMovie exercise files and iPhoto exercise files. There are no exercise files for GarageBand or iWeb included with this tutorial. You will find that the features I show you in those applications can be easily applied to or sampled in your own projects. But for iMovie and iPhoto there are some exercise files that have been designed to showcase specific new features. So if you want to use the same files I'm using in those videos, feel free to add those files to your iPhoto and iMovie libraries.

For iPhoto files I suggest you open iPhoto and choose File > Import to Library, navigate to the exercise files folder and then select iPhoto exercise files and that will include all the other folders within the iPhoto exercise files folder. So select iPhoto exercise files, click Import, and importing your files this way will keep all the files organized into Events, like the events I'll have on my screen when I'm showing you iPhoto. This will also make it easier for you to delete these events when you are done working along with me because most likely you don't want my photos in your iPhoto library. Let's switch over to iMovie.

So when it comes to the iMovie files I suggest creating events for each folder of video clips. In iMovie choose File > Import > Movies. Navigate to the exercise files folder, open up iMovie exercise files and select one of the folders in here and choose Create New Event. And I suggest giving the event the same name as the folder. You can choose rather to make copies of those files or to simply move them into your iMovie library. Once you've made your decisions click Import. Confirm that you want to import those videos and in a few moments you will see that event show up in your iMovie Event Library.

And then just repeat that process for each one of the remaining folders. Select a folder, create a new Event, give it a name, and click Import. Now if you are a monthly or annual subscriber to lynda.com, you don't have access to the exercise files but you can still easily follow along with me just by watching or feel free to use your own media files. None of what I'm going to be showing you in these videos requires you to be using the exact same files that I am, to understand how to take advantage of the new features in iLife '09.

All right, so that's it. Let's get started.
