Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Selecting and adding clips to a project, part of iMovie 11 Essential Training.
As I mentioned previously, the point of using the Event Browser 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 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 want to give you a brief overview.…Let's say I want to create a movie project using the surfing footage I imported earlier.…I'm going to choose File > New Project, and here I'll call this project Surfing,…and I'm going to have no theme selected in this case.…
Now I happen to know that the footage I'm going to be using for this example was…shot at 24 frames per second.…In fact, iMovie is telling me that; you can see the little 24s in the lower…left-hand corners of each of these clips.…So I'm going to change my Frame Rate to 24 frames per second.…The aspect ratio is widescreen,…so I'll leave that selected.…Leaving everything else the way it is, I'll click Create.…
