iMovie is a free editing app that comes with every Mac laptop and desktop. iMovie has a lot of editing features from beginner to advance and it's a perfect tool if you already have a Mac.
For more advanced editing, I recommend Adobe Premiere Pro and you can try it for 7 days here and watch the beginner's tutorial.

Love the video! I'm just starting to get into editing and this is a lot of help! I have a quick question. What website or app do you use to download music in order to get the file into the video editing?

Hi, thank you for the excellent video. Started dabbling in the program today and felt like it was not very intuitive to just pick up and play with without a reference for all the features of the software but this video was extremely helpful. Thank you very much!

What if you don’t have any footage where can you get it? Unfortunately not everyone can go out to film a great footage can you recommend anything else? Thank you
Howfinity Il y a 8 jours
You can use pexels or shhutterstock. Google royalty free footage and you’ll see a few websites for this. I guess non of us can shoot new footage now

I've gone through the save procedures several times and all I get is some bizarre .mp4 format (.mp4.jaosiuaw;erpas) which doesn't work. I did the compatibility thing, nothing was found to be wrong. I hate iMovie, never works right. Thank you for the video. I hope the other stuff you taught will someday be usable once iMovie saves.

Great video tutorial, just what I need to get me started, and subscribed. One question, I want to produce an exercise video for clients, is it best to video the whole class in one take or individual exercises then put it all together. Many thanks

Wondering if you can help. I have an older mac with el capitan and imovie 9. Apparently the are glitches when trying to drop stills onto imovie, they appear blacked out. Best I can find is to convert image to video format and then it should work. I can't find out how to do that and convert to what kind of file extension. Dave

I have been using iMovie on my laptop since 2015, but for no apparent reason I'm no longer able to record a video using my laptop's FaceTime camera. Do you have any advice for fixing this issue? It's very frustrating that apple just updates/changes apps, making them unusable (at least for me). Thanks for any help!

I've been struggling with Apple's constantly changing versions of iMovie off and on for years. This is the best "instruction manual" I have come across. Thanks.

One quick question, is there a way to "save" the content in the "Time Line" for instances where a second movie needs to be created while not finishing the first one? I'm familiar with saving an "Event" but not a Time Line. Thx in advance.

Ok. I'll make that soon. You can get it on a computer for free if you have a computer and it's easier than mobile version. I also have this video on another mobile edit software called adobe rush in the meantime.
