iMovie - Starting a Project
This article describes the steps to get an iMovie project started.
Creating a New Project
Creating a new project is the starting point for using iMovie once clips have been imported. To create a new project, choose File > New Movie. There are a number of themes that can be chosen to automatically add music, transitions, and effects. Alternatively, No Theme can be chosen to prevent this automatic process.
Adding Clips to the Project
To add clips or portions of clips to the new project, follow these steps:
- Make sure that the correct event is chosen in the Library Pane.
- In the Browser, click and drag on a clip to select a portion of it, or press Command and click to select the entire clip.
- Click and drag the clip into the Project Timeline, or press E.
- Click and drag clips in the Project Timeline until they are in the desired order.
