Welcome

Hi, I'm Garrick Chow, and welcome to iMovie for Mac Essential Training. In this course, we'll look at how to use iMovie to create great looking movie projects you can share with your friends and family. I'll start by showing you how to import footage and organize it into events from which you'll be able to assemble your projects into concise effective stories. We'll take a look at how to make your videos look their best by performing color correction and adding video effects. From there, we'll look at more sophisticated types of edits like how to create cutaways or picture in picture effects.

We'll see how to affect the the mood and tone of a project with sound effects and music. And once the project's done and you're ready to share it with the world, I'll walk you through all the options for exporting your project from iMovie. We'll be covering all of these features, plus plenty of other tools and techniques for making your videos the best they can be in iMovie for Mac Essential Training.
