Apple’s iMovie Tips & Tricks

This is a very cool introduction to Apple’s iMovie software. At Ultralab (1990-2006) we use iMovie all the time, I’ve personally used it since late 2000. iMovie is free software and all the movies on the Lifeboats.TV website are made using iMovie, by me, back in 2001/2002.

    Hi Matt, I thought the link was ok but it’s a bit out of date.It mostly deals with iMovie2. The advice about importing Quicktime content is just wrong. All you have to do now is drag clips in, so long as they are less than 2GB or 9 minutes long. I found this out over the summer when experimenting with a friend’s DV camera. I found some good up-to-date advice here:Unofficial iMovie FAQs

    Thanks Linda, I agree 🙂 I personally use iMovie 2 at home (machine does not like iMovie 3 or 4) and iMovie 4 at Ultralab (1990-2006). Lots of the schools we work with still use iMovie 2 as upgrading costs money for new Operating Systems. iMovie 3 I’ve never found stable. Of the 4 versions I still enjoy the simplicity of iMovie 2. My biggest gripe about iMovie 4 is the renaming of some of the functions, eg ‘Apple E’ (Export) has been renamed to ‘Share’, still with the ‘Apple E’ short cut. Silly Apple getting complicated!
