Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Automatically finding people in your clips, part of iMovie 11 Essential Training.
A new way of keeping your footage organized that you'll find in iMovie '11 is…the People Finder feature.…This is a very cool feature in which iMovie will scan through the footage you…have imported and detect the presence of people in your shots.…You can then filter your footage to show only the shots containing people, which…can be a great way to quickly locate footage you're looking for.…To detect people, first select the individual clip or entire event you want to…iMovie to look in for people.…In this case, I have Surfing Clip selected. Then choose File > Analyze Video > People.…
Depending on how much footage you've selected, it could take several seconds or…several minutes for iMovie to do its thing.…And once it's done, you will see purple bars in all the footage where…iMovie found people.…So we see some right here, there.…Now you can see that there is a person-- in fact, the same person--in this clip,…but the purple bar only appears in this one section.…So the People Finder is really a face finder.…
