Removing Black Backgrounds from Muzzle Flashes iMovie Tutorial

Click here to see all my fantastic iMovie tutorials Playlist! In this video I teach you how to remove black backgrounds for muzzle flashes in iMovie. I will go over problems people have when pre-keyed footage is being imported with black backgrounds, and talk about lining up the muzzle flash with the gun. I also announce my 2nd Channel coming out this winter and include my great photobucket page of movie assets for you. My free muzzleflashes, as gifts to you. Download them here: Sometimes the Action Essentials 2 Effect will not play, or will freeze when you tell iMovie to play. This is normal. The reason it freezes is the high quality special effect combined with the video is a lot for iMovie to keep track of. iMovie is not a very powerful program compared to other movie editing software. Don’t worry about the freezing. All what matters is how your video looks at the end, not how iMovie plays it.

    I hope you watched the entire video. Anyways, explosions in iMovie never really look that good in my opinion. Nice work trying to do this with an explosion though. Good to know. Usually people just use this for muzzleflashes. 🙂
