This article describes how to organize events and sort usable from unusable footage.
It is possible to organize, merge, and split events in order to streamline the process of creating videos in iMovie. Additionally, rating clips provides an easy way to sort usable footage from unusuable footage.
Splitting and Merging Events
When clips are first imported, the user must choose between adding clips to an old event or creating a new event. Later, if events need to be split up, these instructions should be followed:
To merge events:
In order to organize clips within an event, go to View > Sort Clips By and choose either date, name, or duration. Additionally, events can be sorted in ascending or descending order based on the selection.
To mark a clip as important or not useful, select a clip or portion of a clip in the Browser and right click it. Choosing Favorite will highlight the clip. Choosing Reject will mark the clip as rejected.
Additionally, within the Browser, there is an option at the top to either Hide Rejected or Show All in order to hide or show clips that have been rejected.
Clips can be deleted by right-clicking them in the Browser and choosing Delete Media from Event. This can be undone as long as iMovie is still open, and they go directly into the system Trash.
