Angus Crossley says:

Hey guys, I will be putting out a new video today as part of a series where I try to cover everything about iMovie. Today Ill be going over the basics, showing you how to load in clips, overlay them, and explaining what tools you have available and what they do. If you guys have any other things you want me to cover in future videos let me know down below! Also send me any of your other questions for a Q&A about filming/editiing, or anything else!

mxim says:

haha I hit the sub button and the thumbs up hand popped up haha – sorry if my grammar isn’t the best, im German 🙂

stefano giovannini says:

Thanks! one of the few tutorials where i did not need to speed up the playback! Can you apply the same color corrections to clips imported at a later time? Too bad iMovie does not have numeric values for the corrections. Also anyway to de-fisheye an action camera in iMovie? Does Premiere elements have less coarse color grading sliders? That is my main issue with iMovie.
