Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Tagging with keywords, part of iMovie 11 Essential Training.
In addition to marking your video clips as favorites or rejects, iMovie also…gives you the ability to tag your video clips with keywords.…Keywords are yet another way of keeping your library organized, and provide you…with yet another way of quickly finding the clips you want to use.…Basically, the way it works is you assign appropriate words to selected clips,…like birthday, pets, vacation, wedding, and so on.…Then later, when you're looking for vacation footage, you can bring up all the…clips in your library that are tagged with the keyword "vacation."…You can assign multiple keywords to your clips, too.…So if you have footage of your pet celebrating their birthdays on vacation at a…wedding, you can apply all of those keywords to the clips.…
So let's see how this works.…First, you want to make sure that you have the Advanced tools in iMovie turned on.…We did this in a previous movie, but again you go to iMovie Preferences and…under General, I will just make sure Show Advanced tools is checked.…
