- [Voiceover] So, we've created a couple different…iMovie projects at this point…and you've probably noticed that…when you go to the file menu…you have the choice of creating a…new movie or a new trailer.…Or, when you go back out to the main projects view…and click the plus button…you also get the choice of creating a movie or a trailer.…And so far we've been working entirely with movies…which allow you to pick and choose…the content of your projects…and edit them together exactly as you want.…A movie trailer on the other hand…is more of a fun, stylized way to put together your footage.…As you probably know…a movie trailer is the preview for films…that play before the movies you see in theaters…or at the beginnings of DVDs…or Blu-ray disks you watch at home.…
Sort of a teaser to entice you…to watch the movie when it comes out.…And although you could use the trailers…you create in iMovie for the same thing,…really iMovie trailers are just an easy…and fun way to share your footage.…They let you quickly assemble your best shots…
