Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Selecting and adding clips to a project, part of iMovie 10.0.2 Essential Training.
…As I previously mentioned, the idea behind using…the Event browser here is to quickly locate among…all the not so great stuff, the good footage…that you actually want to use in your iMovie project.…But, in order to be able to add that good…footage, you need to be able to select the footage.…Now, I'll be getting into much more detail about selections in the…chapter on editing, but for now, I'm going to give you a brief overview.…So let's say I want to create a movie…project using the trail running footage I imported earlier.…To create a new project, I can choose File >…New Movie, or I can click the Create button here.…Basically, you can create either movies or trailers.…
Most of the time, you'll be creating movies,…but we'll talk about trailers a little later.…Next, you're prompted to select a theme for your video.…Themes are basically a collection of visual effects, transitions,…titles, and audio and music clips that fit together.…To preview a theme, just roll your mouse…over it and click the Play button that appears.…
