Basic Video Editing

When Apple introduced iMovie in 1999, it truly was revolutionary. For the first time, home users could digitally edit their own video at a reasonably low cost. Today’s version of iMovie is significantly more capable than its predecessors but just as useful. Its editing capabilities go deep, and subsequent chapters will focus on adding video effects, working with titles and audio, as well as fine-tuning touch-ups. In this chapter, I’ll describe the most common editing techniques.

Ordering Your Clips

iMovie offers nonlinear editing, which means you can reorder video clips any way you’d like. The real benefit is that you needn’t shoot video in sequential order because you can change that in iMovie.
