You've got an idea, and you want to put it on YouTube. iMovie comes with your Mac, and it's the perfect tool for the job!

These days, all digital still cameras can also take video. HD video cameras are so small, you can fit them in your pocket! The video age has arrived, and you are part of it. Once you know a few tricks, editing video is easy.

This tutorial starts with a comprehensive overview of how to capture video and prepare it for editing. You'll learn how to capture video from still cameras, DV & HD camcorders, and also solid-state cameras like the new generation of Memory Stick Camcorders.

Next comes a detailed exploration of the video editing process. Editing clips, adding transitions, and text effects like scrolling credit sequences are all clearly explained.

When your video is finished, it's time to share it with the world. Towards the end of this tutorial you'll learn how to publish your video on the internet using iWeb and .Mac. But best of all, there's a full section on publishing your video to YouTube ... see and hear the process by watching these videos!
