Episode 57: iMovie HD '06, Part II

In part 2, D.Lee Beard continues to explain how to use iMovie 06 (iMovie HD).

D.Lee explores the "Editing" tab to demonstrate how to add titles, themes, video effects, audio effects, transitions between video clips or photos, and apply "Themes" as another type of title effect to your video. He also explains how to add "Chapter" markers for longer videos burned to DVD, or exported for iPod, so that one can skip a section of the video the same way one skips sections on a professional DVD. Speaking of DVDs and iPods, D.Lee explains how to burn your video to a DVD disk that can play in a TV DVD player using iDVD, how to export your video as a QuickTime movie that can be played on an iPod (or not), and how to even export it to videotape.

Stick around to the end and you'll see a short (and very silly) video that was edited entirely in iMovie 06. Hopefully this will inspire you to see what you can do with even simple editing techniques. It is a tribute to the Monty Python "dead parrot" skit although we use a "dead computer" being brought into the local "Geniuis Counter" at the local computer store. Smiles everyone! (29min 35sec)
