But you don't want to go into any details to maybe help venting your frustration?
Or have you got a link at least?
It is kinda boring that way, but hell, let's all chime in and be fruitful.
So, is it stinky garbage like rotting food, or is it clean garbage like old newspapers or dryer lint. Specifics, please?
I like it!
A lot of garbage is recycled into other uses. Kind of like converting videos into other formats, whatever your mind can dream up.
So, iMovie, in its way, can be used to recycle garbage video into useful projects.
I never though of iMovie in exactly that way
Thanks, vjicecool, for your great overview about how useful iMovie can be
All i wanted to do is to add audio to a video
i imported the video to Imovie (Which doesn't have audio with it)- works fine
I imported the audio to Imovie (Which doesn't have video with it)- works fine
Now how do i add the audio to the video, i am having a hard time doing it. I googled and found many articles.
At one step i am failing - I can't find this one "Click on the "Music and Sound Effects" button located on the right hand side of the iMovie program window, directly under the movie playback screen."
Music and SOund option i don't see it in IMovie
Maybe also clarify what iMovie version you use, since Apple released several versions of it and many differ quite some ways.
Thanks for the response
A more effective topic would include a post detailing your expectations from the software, completely. If iMovie does not meet these, a similar program could be recommended. As it is, nothing useful can come from this topic. We're spinning our wheels.
I cannot do step 3
Are you using iMovie HD? (latest version released in January 2006) ...No need to follow an article using that application.
In iMovie, after going to File -> Import media, what are you doing after music has been imported?
I am not fluent in iMovie, but the version in that guide is iMovie HD, from around 2005 and 2006. Old even by Windows standards.
Can this help?
iMovie (2013): Add audio and music
If not and you do further searches, use "imovie 10" or "imovie 2013" as additional search terms.
SO finally i was able to get it to work mixed audio and video
now when i try to share the video - it means to import it to desktop - the size is huge...showing as 11 hrs or so
video was 1.29 gb
audio was 500 mb
when mixed both the file size became 8 gb or so and to import 11 hrs
what a crap
You're right. It's total utter garbage, not worth the time bothering with. Your best bet is to try and find something that does the same job. When you do, let the rest of us know please.
Premiere Pro, FCP7, FCPX, Lightworks, Media Composer....
Some are even affordable!
That went straight over your head, didn't it Policar?
I'll be damn! All these years I have been using garbage for simple video editing when there was something better out there. Please, please, tell me more, I beg of you all.
A specific example of how it is "garbage": Editing titles on the latest version really is trouble. Not all of the title options are fully editable, meaning that the user isn't always able to change font, font color or background color. I've had to create titles in the previous version of iMovie in a few instances.
Most everything else works great.
