iMovie may seem simple, but it offers many of the same features as more powerful video-editing applications, including timeline-based editing, transitions, image stabilization, and even green-screen effects. It even costs much less, and comes preinstalled on all new Macs. Here Garrick Chow shows you how to create your own great looking movies to share with family and friends in iMovie. Learn how to import video from cameras and iOS devices, organize clips into a narrative, trim away unwanted footage and insert new clips, and add transitions, photos, titles, and other special effects. Garrick also shows how to enhance your movie with sound effects and music and then export your movie and share it with the world.
iMovie isn't completely about working with just pre-recorded content. Sometimes you want to be spontaneous, which is why it's so great that iMovie allows you to record live video. Being able to record yourself live is great for things like video blogging or on the spot reporting. And it's really easy to do. To do this, you need a Mac with a Facetime camera, which comes built into all current MacBooks, MacBook Pros, and iMacs. You can also use one of the older style external iSight cameras that Apple used to make, if you still have one of those. You can even use any Fire Wire camcorder, the same kind you can import TV tape footage from, which in many cases will give you a better quality image than the Face Time camera.
In my case, right now I have an old iSight camera connected to my Mac Pro. To make your recording either choose File> Import Media or click the Import button here. You'll see your camera here under Cameras. Right now you're seeing my through the eye sight camera. With it selected I can see my face on the screen here. I'm going to come up here to Import To and choose My Event. I'll just choose the default event that was created when I installed iMovie. And when you're ready to, you can just click the Record button. Hit Record, and start talking to the camera. iMovie will continue to record until you hit the Record button again.
And then I can close this. And here with that event selected is the clip I just recorded live. So that's how you can record live video directly into iMovie.
