Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Rating clips, part of iMovie 11 Essential Training.
As you review the footage you've imported into iMovie, you're most likely going…to find that some parts are going to be more usable than others.…For example, there is almost always some shots of the camera being raised up…to shoot, or dropped down at your side when you're done shooting before you stop recording.…Or maybe you're like me and have lots of footage of the inside of your camera…bag from when you accidentally hit the Record button before putting the camera away.…So as you're going through your clips, it's a good idea to mark certain parts as…what iMovie refers to as favorites.…Favorites are pieces of footage that you've marked as good, so you can easily…identify them later when you want to use them in a project.…
Similarly, you can also mark parts of your clips as rejects and set them up for…deletion so they're not sitting there taking up space on your hard drive.…So, let's see how to do this.…I'm going to review the footage in my surfing event here. Now there are a couple…of shots here I really like.…
