iMovie 10 Tutorial: Beginners and Basics

If you’re not a fan of iMovie 10, you can launch iMovie 9 by this trick:

So I decided to make a video that showed how I use iMovie and the basics within (on Macbooks, iMacs, and other laptop and desktop devices – This is not for iPads/iPhones). Also, this does not necessarily represent how iMovie should be used, but it is my beginner’s guide as these are the simple features that I use, without having to shell out for a more advanced movie editor.

Views of the software are purely my own and not everyone may agree that this is the best way to use iMovie, but this demonstrates how I use it and how easy it is.

Gwenie601 says:

I’ve been working on a family films movie in iMovie, which is not completed. Yesterday I installed an app which makes space on the MacBook hard drive. I think I may have accidentally deleted my iMovie project, including all he slides. Can I recover them and how do I do this?

I know this is an old thread, but I’m still using iMovie 10. My screen doesn’t look like yours. It also doesn’t have the big bottom one or the tools in the middle. I can’t figure out how to get them back either. I have googled it countless times and I’m frustrated. Any help would be great. Again, how do I get the tool features back and how do I get the bottom big window at the bottom. Also how do you save? It won’t let me save anything.

You don’t really need to go down until so basic as if we are so dumb or ever touch a computer. Go straight to the pt is more effective. Your tutorial can actually halve the time
