Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Finalizing your project, part of iMovie 11 Essential Training.
When you've reached to the point where you are certain your iMovie project is…in its final form--meaning you are sure you're not going to make any more…changes to it, or at least pretty sure--you might want to consider finalizing the project.…When you finalize a project in iMovie, iMovie saves your project in all the…possible sizes we looked at in this chapter:…Mobile, Medium, Large, HD 720p, and HD 1080p--as long as your project…supports those sizes.…Unlike exporting your movie to the Media Browser, the finalized versions of the…movies don't show up in the Media Browser or iMovie.…Instead, iMovie stores them and uses them when you share your project to your…MobileMe or to one of the social media sites we looked at, like YouTube or…Facebook, and that cuts down the time needed to share a movie to those sites.…
