iMovie - a viable editing tool?
« on: June 05, 2009, 09:40:49 am »
Hi guys, I'm considering making my own video very very soon (with a friend or two... I'm afraid none of us entirely brilliant jugglers but we'll see how it goes :)), and this will be my first video I'll ever be doing any editing work on...

So I was just wandering, as editing goes, does iMovie work very well? I'm afraid I have no other choice really, but I was curious how good it was, or maybe soem tips on clever thingymegig's you can do with it? thanks for any help anyone can offer :D

take a look at any movie with me an toby in all of these are done with movie maker which is worse than imovie i believe, heck even baghead uses movie maker i believe.

so bassically its more than good enough, plus if youve not edited before you wont understand the more advanced programs.

The newest iMovie is even better than the iMovie HD. In the new one there are really good features like the steady cam thingie. ;) I've edited most of my videos with iMovie. You can also get bluescreen plug-ins for iMovie. It really versatile software. Your'll do well with the iMovie.

I would say it's more about how you film the video than about the software...

Mine was on Imovie.
Theres either fade out/in or wash out/in which don't look cheesy but the other transitions do IMO.
its good enough though.
