Chapter 6. Video Effects

6. Video Effects

In this chapter, you learn how to add fun and effective video effects to your project. Much like significantly more expensive alternatives, iMovie offers special effects like slow motion, picture-in-picture, and even green screen (or chroma key). Each boldly sets a mood or tone for your movie. Plus, these effects are just plain fun. Let’s get started.

Shooting your footage, importing into iMovie, and carefully editing your project to meet your vision are only part of the big picture (if you’ll pardon the pun). Alter the look and feel with video effects to make a clip appear other-worldly, old, or black-and-white. Use jump cuts for a dramatic effect or slow motion for an instant replay of the big play. Finally, special effects like picture-in-picture and green screen mimic the functions of much pricier video editing software. I start by describing the video effects available in the Inspector.
