Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Capturing live action, part of iMovie 10.0.2 Essential Training.
…iMovie isn't completely about working with just pre-recorded content.…Sometimes you want to be spontaneous, which is why it's…so great that iMovie allows you to record live video.…Being able to record yourself live is great for…things like video blogging or on the spot reporting.…And it's really easy to do.…To do this, you need a Mac with a Facetime camera,…which comes built into all current MacBooks, MacBook Pros, and iMacs.…You can also use one of the older style external iSight cameras…that Apple used to make, if you still have one of those.…You can even use any Fire Wire camcorder,…the same kind you can import TV tape footage…from, which in many cases will give you…a better quality image than the Face Time camera.…
In my case, right now I have an old iSight camera connected to my Mac Pro.…To make your recording either choose File>…Import Media or click the Import button here.…You'll see your camera here under Cameras.…Right now you're seeing my through the eye sight camera.…With it selected I can see my face on the screen here.…
