in Sixteen Pages

The UK Writing Center created an incredible lean and mean iMovie guide titled “iMovie in Sixteen Pages.”  This PDF guide covers simple to advanced video editing, divided into simple illustrated steps. It also includes helpful information for using iMovie at UK, including how to use a thumbdrive to save and move an iMovie project from one Maclab computer to another.

Click the image at right to open the guide. (The full document will take a few minutes to load.) Click blue page numbers in the table of contents to navigate topics, and click the iMovie headers at the top of each page to return to the table of contents. If you’d like in-person, one-on-one help with your project, schedule a multimedia consultation or contact Rachel Elliott.

Practice footage

If you’d like to play with iMovie, but don’t have any footage, here are two public domain video files to get started. To download the files, right-click or two-finger click the link and select save link as from the pop-up options.
