Learn how to create a polished, professional movie with easy-to-use video editing software specifically tailored for use on iOS devices. Author Garrick Chow covers capturing video, either through the built-in camera on the iPad 2 and iPhone 4 or from external sources, and demonstrates all the steps for creating, assembling, editing, and sharing the completed video. The course also details the differences between the iPhone and iPad versions of the iMovie interface, and how to transfer videos between devices with iTunes.

Topics include:
  • Shooting with the built-in cameras
  • Importing footage from other sources
  • Adding clips to a project
  • Trimming, splitting, and rotating clips
  • Adjusting transitions between clips
  • Adding stills photos and titles
  • Adding sound effects or background music
  • Sharing with YouTube, Facebook, or Vimeo
  • Saving or transferring a movie with iTunes


Hi! I am Garrick Chow and welcome to iMovie for the iPad. In this course, we will focus on how to use iMovie on the iPad to create complete polished movies from start to finish. We will cover topics like importing footage from other devices on to your iPad, including how to shoot live video directly into iMovie. We will see how to assemble the clips together in the iMovie timeline to form a cohesive story. We will take a look at adding effects like titles and transitions to give your videos a more professional looking sheen, and also how to work with audio to add sound effects and background music.

(Music playing) And then we will see how to export your final project from iMovie so you can share it in person or online with friends and family. (Male speaker - Garrick: ?recognize the road entrance to the Appalachian trail?) (Music playing) Although this course focuses on using iMovie on the iPad 2, the iOS version of iMovie also runs on the iPhone 4 and the fourth-generation iPod Touch. So, if you have one of those devices, you will still be able to follow along and you will find a movie in the first chapter that explains the minor differences between using iMovie on the iPad and on the other iOS devices.

So, with that said, let's get started with iMovie for iPad Essential Training.
