The storm kept storming and I was getting a little anxious. House bound. I remembered I had the new updated version of iMovie on my computer and decided to create a slide show using my snow pictures. It would give me a chance to play around with the software. So, I pulled out my story and the pictures I took and "Fluffy Fang" was born.
I do like this iteration of iMovie better than the last one but after working in higher end editors, I find it very frustrating to go back to the low end. I was able to layout my slides the way I wanted. I couldn't quite get the sound I wanted so I did the narration with a little music and sound effects in Garageband. I then imported it back into iMovie. It turned out OK. I uploaded the end result so you could see the end result.
- It's easy to get content into the program. You can import it or just bring it in from iphoto and iTunes.
- Easy to add titles although I found it a little hard to edit them just the way I wanted
- Easy to build in transitions
- Don't quite understand the Precision Editor yet. Need to mess with this a bit more.
- If there is a timeline view, I couldn't find it.
- Could never edit the sound quite how I wanted it.
Here is my video, Fluffy Fang and the Spring Storm. My sincere apologies to Jack London and his decedents. I'm going to re-write the script and do this all again in Premiere. (If I actually follow through with this plan, I'll post the results.)
