— How to Edit Video on iPhone & iPad: iMovie Tutorial for iOS —

Editing apps on iPhone and iPad have REALLY come a long way, and you can now get some great results right on your phone or tablet device.

We’ve tested a TON of apps, ranging from the simplest template-based apps that automatically generate videos from your footage, to full-blown editing solutions with timeline and multi-track support… After trying out so many options, we released a video running through the two apps we’d recommend to anyone looking to edit on iOS (check it out here:

One of those recommendations was iMovie for iOS. It’s an awesome app for creating great content right on your iPhone or iPad – and in this video we run you through an iMovie tutorial, showing exactly how to use it!

This is not a full featured review and will not cover how to use every tool or feature in the iMovie app. We’ll be running through a full edit end-to-end, covering everything you need to know to get you editing fast, and with great results, using your iOS device.

NOTE: We’ll be following the Primal Video Method, the most efficient editing process to eliminate any rework or wasted time. We did a video on this a while back (here: If you haven’t seen it yet, you can also download the PDF guide to help you with your videos:

Hey Justin, do you know how to put more than one text box at a time on a clip, and also how to move them around? Thanks

Dennis Smith says:

The video was great. I viewed your video several times before jumping into my first project ever. Your video really was a great benefit. There was one problem that I seem to be having. I’m not sure if you’ve run into this. The top part of my screen is being cropped. It’s really annoying to lose people’s heads or parts of their heads in the completed video. I am new to video editing so I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks.
