Very helpful vid! I was making YouTube videos using iMovie for iPad and just upgraded to a MacBook Pro. Do you think a mouse would be helpful? I just completed a motorcycle trip from Portland OR to Ushuaia Argentina and had my helmet cam on the entire time. I need to make a 1 hour video from the 200 clips I have.

Gin Gin Farragher says:

~ I am editing old VHS recordings from an old camcorder -they are now digital. So… I may sound really low, yet the one holding the camcorder is SUPER loud; it really needs to be adjusted. –With the previous iMovie (before I upgraded to Sierra), I was able to drag over specific voices in the audio area and either raise or lower the volume. (Not the entire audio clip.) I am now having difficulty finding where and how to do this with the iMovie from Sierra. Is this new iMovie able to do this, or is the feature gone? Suggestions if it’s gone, please 🙂 I still have many more to edit! Also, I appreciate all the time & detail you’ve put in your video. Thank you VERY MUCH!

Bo Jan says:

Great Video 🙂
But the music on Audiojungle is not for free, or maybe I wasn´t able to find it?
