In iMovie '11 Essential Training, author Garrick Chow illustrates the process of creating high-quality video using iMovie '11. The course covers the entire post-production process, from importing audio, video, and still images to adding effects, creating trailers, and sharing your finished projects on social networks. Also included are tutorials on adjusting audio levels, automatically identifying clips that include faces, and using green screen effects. Exercise files accompany the course.
If you have a premium membership to the lynda.com Online Training Library, or if you are watching this course on a disc, you have access to these sample movies and photos I will use throughout this course, and you can use these files to work along with me. Now, this is a progressive course, meaning that I am going to create a new project early on, and then continue to build and refine it throughout the rest of the course. So while you can jump around the course and watch any movies you like, if you want to work along with me, you will have to start from at least the beginning of chapter 5 Editing Video, when I start building the project from scratch if you want to build the same project.
The Exercise Files folder contains all the footage and photos I use, but iMovie isn't designed to let you import a project that's already in progress, so that's not something we can provide. But in any case, you can always work with your own footage and jump in at any point, whether you have access to the exercise files or not. You will still learn everything you need to be up and running with iMovie in no time. But if you do have the exercise files, just copy them to your Desktop and I will be letting you know what files to grab and when, if you want to work along with me.
