Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Organizing events, part of iMovie 10.0.2 Essential Training.
…Okay, this chapter is all about getting your clips organized in iMovie.…Sure, we could jump in and start editing,…but believe me, you definitely want to spend…some time going through your clips and doing…things like organizing them into events or rating them.…It'll make your life much easier as your iMovie library continues to grow.…So let's start by taking a look at how to further organize events.…We've already seen that whenever you import clips, you can choose whether you…want to add those clips to an existing event or to a new event.…So you have to place clips into events no matter what.…But that doesn't mean the clips have to stay in those events.…
You can split events up, merge them together, or…completely get rid of them and the clips they contain.…For example, my Appalachian Trail event here, actually consists of 33 clips.…If I click this menu here and drag the zoom slider all…the way to the left, you can see the individual clips better.…Now there are two clips in here that are more shots of scenery than actual running.…
