Chapter 4. iMovie Beyond the Basics

4. iMovie Beyond the Basics

Using the techniques covered so far, you can make all kinds of great videos in iMovie. Having a firm grasp of the basics helps you edit projects faster, so you’re spending more time enjoying your content and less time feeling your way through the software. But you’re bound to run into special situations: What to do when you want to fine-tune the way a transition works between two clips? What if your footage suffers from unexpected camera shake, or if the audio is muddled?

iMovie includes many tools for dealing with special situations, as well as for improving what you’ve already shot. For example, the color correction controls can boost saturation, adjust white balance, and apply eye-catching video effects. In this chapter, I also dig into advanced editing techniques and building photo slideshows.
