iMovie Tutorial: Beginners and Basics

iMovie Tutorial: Beginners and Basics

So I decided to make a video that showed how I use iMovie and the basics within. This does not necessarily represent how iMovie should be used, but it is my beginner’s guide as these are the simple features that I use, without having to shell out for a more advanced movie editor. Views of the software are purely my own and not everyone may agree that this is the best way to use iMovie, but this demonstrates how I use it and how easy it is. If you want to see the finished product of my VLOG, you can check it out here:

    No worries, it’s great to be able to show people who are new to this version of iMovie, or even experienced users some things from scratch so it doesn’t seem so scary! Best of luck with navigating iMovie and I hope to see what you can produce though it!

    Heh. Thanks very much! If you want to hear more of me speaking, you can always check out my playlist of vlogs on my channel. I personally don’t think I’m that good, but hey, there’s always more material for you 🙂

    Thanks Tenty. Thanks for getting back so quickly. I have now made a short video and am working on getting some music into it since it is panoramic and hope to save and eventually get one to u tube and get it into my Facebook page. Thank you so much. I feel I have achieved something today and you have really helped me step by step. I am so enjoying this.

    Hey there. No worries. I’ve updated the description box to have the final edited vlog that I was working on when I made this video. I hope that makes more sense.

    I would say that 80% of the videos I post on here have gone though iMovie (unless they were a direct upload like some of the videos for the 60 Second September VLOGs). Hope that gives you an idea however of what you can do in a simple editor 🙂 Best of luck and feel free to ask questions if you get stuck!

    I was hoping you would show us how the movie clip looked after all the work. I am a beginner and will have a look over this video a few times before getting the hang of it. Many thanks.

    Thanks for this tutorial. It’s great for a beginner like me

    Ah, sorry to hear that it’s all changed and it’s more of a pain to use iMovie from the previous versions. I came from just using iMovie ’11 so it’s the only way I know to edit videos. If you get stuck, hopefully you can work it out using my video as a reference! Best of luck with the new version. Will be interested to see how you go 🙂

    Very helpful…gives me hope. I really dislike the current version of iMovie (compared to the one I used extensively in 2006) and was about to look into the possibility of finding that old version to use again. But your video gives me hope that I can learn what I already have, even though it is counterintuitive and difficult to learn!
