Making a successful film, whether it’s a big Hollywood blockbuster or a home movie, is all about timing. For action sequences with a lot of energy, you need quick, short clips. Longer shots are usually better suited for emotional scenes.
Even though iMovie is aimed at the casual filmmaker, you still have in your hands a powerful tool that is designed to offer you everything you need to edit fast and with precision. The fact that Apple has adopted the general interface for its new version of Final Cut Pro speaks volumes as to its belief that editing this way is easier than any other method invented, until now.
Not being very familiar with iMovie, I had it import all the movies on my Mac. I noticed my drive space might have suffered for it. How do I disassociate all those movies from iMovie to reclaim that lost drive space?
If you love software updates, it’s like Christmas morning in October for Apple product owners. In addition to this morning’s new iOS apps, the folks in Cupertino are busy pushing out iOS 5 compatibility updates for almost everything they’ve released -- including Remote, Find My iPhone, iMovie and the trio of iWork apps.
Preparing your videos for internet uploads can be a pain for some. Some video sharing websites treat the files differently, leaving many to export multiple copies of their videos for each site they wish to share their video with. However, with the appropriate settings in iMovie or QuickTime, you can easily export one high-quality file that can be used on any video sharing website to give viewers the best possible quality.
Do you remember when iMovie was easy to use and had a bunch of exciting features? For only $9.99 you can regain control of your amateur auteurism as well as access video effects and editing tricks that iMovie—and even Final Cut Pro X—would be proud of.
Apple is no stranger to controversy, and one can only assume that they were bracing for plenty of it by introducing Final Cut Pro X on Tuesday. The completely rewritten application has received both praise and outright hostility from users, with the older version -- along with Express and Server versions -- no longer available.
As promised back in April during NAB, Apple pulled the trigger on Final Cut Pro X Tuesday morning, turning its back on the previous generation of non-linear editing tools and offering a new, fully 64-bit application that aims to revolutionize how video content is created.
Apple sure has been keeping busy in the days leading up to WWDC 2011, leaking their own iCloud announcement in a press release, offering universal updates for their iWork apps and even updating iMovie and GarageBand for iOS with more output options and bug fixes.
They say the best camera is the one that’s always with you -- and for most of us, that’s likely to be an iPhone. And in the case of the iPhone 4, Apple included a very capable 720p HD video shooter -- provided that you know how to get the best results from it.
