iMovie 2019 Tutorial on Mac: Pro-Level Editing Using Precision Editor

  • เผยแพร่เมื่อ 28 มี.ค. 2019
  • In this tutorial, I show you a few professional video-editing techniques using iMovie’s Precision Editor.
    iMovie may seem like barebones, amateur video-editing software. But, it actually has features you’d find in more sophisticated, professional video-editing applications. One of those features is the Precision Editor. As the name suggests, the Precision Editor helps you make more precise edits. But it also allows you to use more professional-level editing techniques in your videos.

    The Precision Editor makes iMovie a way more capable video editor than it looks. What do you think of the Precision Editor feature? How will you use it in your videos?

      Amazing tutorial. Perfect speed of explanation and such a great voice! Loved learning how to use this instead of just swearing every time I open Precision Editor by mistake. 😂

      super-helpful! I'm editing a video for a Kickstarter campaign and I have to match up two parts with different sound levels. Thanks for showing how to adjust the audio of one clip separately. Once this Kickstarter is over, I definitely want to try out a J cut the way you demonstrated because it looks awesome :)

      Great tutorial Michael, can you do a Tutorial on How to show what you are doing from your IPad Pro while you are teaching on your Mac Book Pro late 2015 at the same time ? Which has a different Connectic to plug into your Mac

    Very helpful video, thank you! Have been using Adobe Premiere for years, however the rest of my team don't have an Adobe cc licence so we needed to find a workable solution. I didn't even know the precision editor existed until seeing this video! Thank you and you have one extra subscriber!

    Thanks for your video! I think iMovie is similar to Movavi. Movavi is better for Windows users. What do you think about it?

    Wow! Thanks. I’ve been using iMovie for two days working on a project for a friend. I knew it had some secrets I hadn’t unlocked. Thanks for a clear and concise explanation... They should call you “The Precision Editor”!

    Just subbed. I’m getting a Mac finally this week. I will not edit another video on my phone. I’m a whole grown up out here. Lol. iMovie on a phone and computer works differently doesn’t it? Have you done a video on I movie where you can talk over a clip? Not a voice over- I mean talking then showing something but then the video returns to me talking? I do more talking videos than others. TIA!!
