Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the Precision Editor, part of iMovie for iOS Essential Training (2014).
…So far, we've seen how to trim clips to determine which portions of them you want…to have appear in your project, and we've…seen how to adjust the transitions between the clips.…But, as you work with iMovie, you might find you…have trouble making precise cuts or trims to your clips.…It's not always easy to start and end a clip precisely using the Trim tools.…Fortunately, iMovie also comes with a tool call the Precision Editor, which gives you…much finer control over the points where one clip ends and the next one begins.…Now, this feature is only available on the iPad so if you're on an…iPhone or an iPad touch you unfortunately don't have access to the Precision Editor.…
