Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Fine-tuning clips, part of iMovie 10.0.2 Essential Training.
…As we've already seen, it's easy to select…the portions of the clips you want to add to…your project just be selecting them in the…event browser, and then dragging them into your project.…But it's not very easy to be precise about exactly…which frames of the clip you're starting and ending with.…That's where the precision editor comes in.…It lets you fine tune the moment where one clip stops, and the next one begins.…It can be useful in cases where you want to…time the start of a clip exactly with a music…cue, or if there's something at the end of the…shot that you want to cut out at exactly the right moment.…Now you may have noticed that between each clip you…add to the timeline, you see these dark, vertical bars.…
Those represent the transitions between the clips.…And by default, there are no transitions.…Right now, each clip begins as soon as the preceding…clip ends, so we have these sharp cuts between the clips.…We'll talk more about adding different types of transitions later, but for now…I point them out because that's how you get to the precision editor.…
