So if you take to heart what I said previously about always spending the time to…rate your footage so it's easy to find the good stuff later,…you'll probably soon realize that rating footage can get kind of tedious.…I mean it involves so much back-and-forth clicking.…First, you have to drag to select the footage you want;…then you have to click the Favorites button. Then you have to drag the select…footage you want; then you have to click the Favorites button.…So if you're doing a lot of marking, I highly suggest you go to iMovie >…Preferences, and under the General tab, check Show Advanced tools.…Now before I do that, let me close this for a second and deselect everything here.…
You'll notice when I have nothing selected the marking tools are all grayed out.…You have to select something to activate these buttons.…But if I go to iMovie > Preferences and check Show Advanced tools,…notice those buttons that become available, along with some other buttons now appearing in the toolbar.…So even with nothing selected right now, these buttons are now available,…
