What is iMovie?


Definition: iMovie is video editing software which is available on Mac and iOS. Since 2003, iMovie is free with all new Mac computers.

Advantages:

  1. Edit video footage.
  2. Create your own footage to edit.
  3. Bring items from other programs such as iPhoto, iTunes, GarageBand, and iLife.
  4. Create an interactive and fun learning environment.
  5. Increase student buy-in to a project.
  6. Create individuality among an assignment using all the effects that iMovie holds.

Disadvantages:

  1. We must work on the same computer for the entire time they are creating their project. Once the movie is exported, it can no longer be changed.
  2. iMovie is very movement sensitive. Users should have full attention on their project when editing a movie.
  3. Learning iMovie can be challenging. The layout is not "beginning user-friendly."
  4. The longer your iMovie project is, the longer, it will take to export into a format that can be viewed by other users.

So, we may have the desire to copy videos to DVD from iMovie. On the one hand, we can share our happy stories to family and friends without worries about media players’ compatibility. On the other hand, we can avoid losing videos if iMovie suddenly stopped working…
