AMessageFromTheBride Weddingsandevents says:

I was completely lost, way too fast for a beginner to understand. Any chance you can do this video again but slower? the 0.5 speed wasn’t easy to follow. I mainly want to know how to merge 2 clips together. When editing, it’s obvious there’s a jump in the video. I want to avoid this so it looks smoother.

Itallish says:

do you have like a Facebook page where you give weekly tips fervid editing ?

Paige Nelson says:

I just got an Apple MacBook and I love iMovie!

The Vintage Vegan says:

thanks for the tips!

Natalie Navarro says:

can you plssssssss do another one of these 🙂

Brookz MSP says:

I still have a question, the part where you can move that emoji. You can do a transition when there’s a animation icon. How do you add a animation icon?

Ellen Mentor says:

it would be more professional if you showed and talked more slowly, adjusting the speed is not nice to liiiiissssstennnn tooo
