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.
When working with some titles you have additional customization options. Here I'll select the title from the Title Browser and I'll drag it to the left of the first video clip to add in a background. Now in the Viewer, I'll click the Show Fonts button. Note that this only appears with certain customizable titles, not all of them. Here you can choose from a list of nine fonts. Skim to the left and right over the font name to preview how the animated title will look. Click to select a font and then move to choosing one of nine colors.
Select and then choose a size. You can use the same skimming method to preview. Now these choices will be enough for most cases but if you have your heart set on a specific font, you can always click the System Font panel button to access any font installed on your Mac. Click the iMovie Font panel button to return to the Standard panel. Next, you can activate and deactivate Bold Style, Italics and Outline. You can then change the alignment from Left Justified to Center Justified and so on.
When you are happy, click Done. Then go ahead and modify your text. Now, you can even change the title after you've customized it. Just double-click the title, click the Title button and then skim the various titles for a new selection. Click to select one and then click Done. The new style is applied and your customized text is copied into the new title. (Music playing and crowd noises.) So feel free to experiment not only with the Theme Titles but with the many others that come standard regardless of which theme you've chosen.
A couple that you might want to note are the Scrolling Credits and the various Lower Thirds towards the bottom. To adjust how quickly titles fade in and out, choose File > Project Properties and in the Timing section, adjust the Title Fade Duration.
