iMovie '09 is a powerful video editing tool that is part of Apple's iLife suite. In iMovie '09 Essential Training, Damian Allen takes new and intermediate users through the steps to create professional-looking video. Damian covers the whole editing process, from importing audio, video, and image files to adding text and graphics. He also teaches several ways to share a finished piece with others. Exercise files accompany the course.
Once you've added Beat Markers to your music and you're satisfied that they're in the right place, you can add video or photos to the project and watch them automatically snap to your beats. Now, before we get started, one important note. Make sure in the Project Properties that Automatically Add Cross Dissolve, or whatever transition might be selected here, is deselected. If this is selected, it'll override the snap to beats. Here I'll go ahead and select a few photos and drag them in.
You'll see that they've automatically been placed on the beat markers that I set in the previous lesson. (Music playing.) Now, if you want to override the beat markers and edit video normally, just choose View and deselect Snap to Beats.
Now here I've been using photos but you'll see if I delete the photos by selecting them and pressing Delete, I can use video instead. The same process applies. Let's take a listen. (Music playing and crowd noises.) Now, obviously in this case, the sound of the clips themselves is overshadowing the music but you get the idea. The video is being edited to the clip marks.
Finally, to delete all your beat markers, open the music in the Clip Trimmer, then Ctrl-click or right-click on the waveform and choose Remove All Beat Markers.
