    Dude that’s an awesome tutorial! We’ve been using Adobe for years, and now we’re not doing that anymore and this looks like a super viable option! Thank you!

    I really enjoyed your video. I have been using iMovie for about 9 months now. I am a convert from Windows Movie Maker. I knew of many of the tools you reviewed in this video, but I also learned a lot of new techniques. I also learned that I need to start taking more video to be inserted with the still photos. Thanks again. i will subscribe.

    Extremely thorough walk through. Question though about splitting the video clips…does this action of splitting the clips destroy the original video file?

    Hi. Thank you for all the good information. I’m starting my YouTube page and I just bought my first MAC computer and I have an iPhone. So I’m going to use all the information you provided here in your video to get started. Thanks again.

    Awesome information video David……I have just one question, Is there a way to input more transitions/Backgrounds, or filters in Imovie?

    Nice but it’s far from beying "Full Tutorial". Do you intend to cover some more advanced functions in the future?

    Hi, David 👍🏻👊🏻 Awesome informative information and very knowledgeable thanks for sharing your I Movie tutorial, I just purchased a GoPro Hero 6 and I have an I phone 6, I’m so wanting to learn how to create movies and share with my friends and family, also that Zhiyun smooth 4 gimbal is so amazing I will be videoing my kayak adventures and hiking adventures. I really wanted to buy a Cannon 80 D with the Rode mic but that’s like $1,500. I’m going to download I Movie and start learning to make awesome videos. Thanks again for sharing, enjoy and have a Blessed Sunday !!! Danny

    From Spain. I’ve just watched your tutorial and I do think it is fantastic. I have enjoyed it and learned a lot from it. Thank you very much. By the way, your English is very easy to understand (and, I can assure you that that is something non-English speakers appreciate when watching videos in Youtube). Please, keep up with such a good work.

    A small question. If I break up a scene so I can use the Ken Burns effect as a transition, how do I capture the final cropped rectangle so the next scene is cropped to match the end of the previous scene? BTW–your’s are the best tutorials. Really.

    I have saved my project twice and I must be doing something really wrong 😮 as I added a voice over above a music background and a sound effect. The two times I see the project finished the sound is cut 🙁 sos help, maybe you know what I do wrong: from an imovie beginner dummy practioner 😉 Thank you!

    David, Sometimes when I make a Video and have several songs from itunes, they play at different volumes. To correct for this, you can look at the wavelength patterns of the different songs to try to equal them or you can try listening by ear to adjust the respective volumes to get them closer. As a result, one song might play at 100% and another might have to be reduced to 50% to sound like they’re at the same volume. Is there a better, easier, or automatic way that you can use to play them at the same volumes? Sometimes ther’s a big difference even after I’ve thought that I fixed it. I hope my question is clear for you. Thanks

    David what do you do when the audio plays and not the video ? I’ve moved the footage to the media bin . It will not however play in the box to the right. Makes it impossible to edit. I’ve done something wrong. Thank you for any insights.

    All of my photos/videos are on my MacBook from my phone, but they’re not showing up on IMovie and I’m really confused

    Thanks fro such a comprehensive video. I’m new to iMovie. There seem to be black background on all my images when I create the slide. I cant seem to get rid of it. I’ve done a few searches on the apple website and it may have something to do with the sizes of my images not conforming to iMovies required size so iMovie fills in with the black. How can I add a white background instead and or how can i resize the images to fit without the background added? Any suggestion?

    Thanks for a great beginner like me. I’m heading to Greece and Portugal the end of June and plan on sending "Beginner VLOGS" home to family and friends. I’ll be using my Canon GX7Mark II, DJI Spark Drone,….I’ll be reviewing this before my final in June.
