"I've shot my footage... Now what?" This is the biggest question every video editor asks when using video editing software. This course is designed to guide you through the importing and organizing process to ensure your iMovie clips are brought in, managed and ready to be edited!
Back when desktop video editing was just a sparkle in every film editor's eye, Michael was busy creating Final Cut Pro. Learn Final Cut Pro from one of the original designers of this incredible piece of software!
It's time to get organized! It's amazing what a little pre-editing clip management will do to keep your video editing process running smoothly! So, before you start up a new iMovie project, get some fundamental knowledge of how to deal with all your footage and content.
This course – by the entertaining and knowledgable Michael Wohl – takes you step-by-step through the processes of importing footage and audio. It then dives into clip and file management to ensure that your project doesn't get bogged down with extraneous and disorganized content.
From there you get some basic clip sorting, playback, selection and marking techniques that'll allow you to confidently move your content to the the timeline and begin editing!
By the time you finish this course, you will have a complete understanding of how iMovie deals with all kinds of content and what you can do to keep yourself, your Mac and iMovie organized and running at an optimum pace!

I have to admit I regarded iMovie as just another play-at-home gadget.
This in-depth course by my favourite trainer shows my error.
For many video creators this app is more than enough for creating great movies.

Really good intro course, helped me understand the basics. I like the teacher's subtle sense of humor too, found myself chuckling as I learned - that's always a good thing.

A great explanation of the iMovie interface and how to deal and organize your footage. I really enjoyed watching this course, it made everything very clear for me.

Michael Wohl is one of my favourite MPV trainers. I learnt just about everything I know about Final Cut Pro from his tutorials. Now, with iMovie being so powerful, I think that this app may serve my needs just as well.
Michael is like a breath of fresh air. Yes, he knows a lot but he has that happy knack of not ramming it down your throat. His tutorials are well structured and well thought-out and delivered with his trade-mark sense of humour. PLEASE NOTE: Silliness should be part of every teachers skill-set!!
Some educators seem to drone on and on until all you want to do is turn off the computer and do something else. Michael keeps you engaged and before you know it, you've completed the course!
iMovie is not the most intuitive app I've ever encountered and I definitely would not have picked it up as well without the aid of this set of videos. A resounding 5 out of 5. Well done!!!

I have seen other videos on iMovie that just skim the surface. They don't go into any detail. I have also read a couple of books that were as clear as mud. This course gives you the indepth detail that I want. By showing you what to do and then seeing the results locks it in my mind better than just reading something and leaving you to figure it out on your own. This is an excellent program and would recommend it to anyone wishing to learn iMovie!
