Extra-Special Effects

Make action shots more exciting by slowing them down. Let viewers fly through scenes by speeding them up. Or add a broadcast feel to your school report with picture-in-picture and split-screen effects.

Soundtracks, Simplified

Rock your video with over 80 smart soundtracks on iOS that intelligently adjust to match the length of your movie. You can also add built-in sound effects or record your own voiceover to create a video that sounds as good as it looks.

Whether you're making a silent film, moving a story forward, or simply have something to say, iMovie titles and backgrounds let you quickly create personalized title cards, credits, and more on your iPhone and iPad. Easily customize titles by choosing your favorite fonts and colors, pinching to scale, placing them over photos or videos, and then positioning them onscreen wherever you like. Plus, you can select background colors, gradients, and patterns, adjust title and background durations, or even add a graphic or logo to make your mark.

Appear Anywhere

Transport yourself with green-screen effects.

Go everywhere you’ve always wanted to — without leaving home. With green-screen effects in iMovie for iOS and macOS, you can place yourself or your characters in exotic locations with a tap or a click. Masking controls and strength adjustments let you fine-tune the effect for maximum believability.

You have hundreds of videos. And one big dream to be a moviemaker. iMovie trailers let you quickly create fun, Hollywood-style movie trailers from all that footage. Choose from a range of templates in almost any genre, pick your studio logo, and type in your movie title and credits. Then add photos and videos to the storyboard. Whether you’re using an iPhone, iPad, or Mac, you’ll have an instant blockbuster.

iMovie for iOS and iMovie for macOS are designed to work together. You can start cutting a project on your iPhone, then use AirDrop or iCloud Drive to wirelessly transfer it to your iPad. You can also send a project from your iPhone or iPad to your Mac for finishing touches like color correction and animated maps.

Video Tutorials
March 1, 2021

With the rise of TikTok and Instagram reels, video creation is now more crucial than ever. Creators and business owners alike feel the pressure to churn out engaging video quickly and affordably. So – what is the best way to create awesome video projects without a professional video production background?

One great tool for beginners is iMovie. This amazing editing software helps people cut video clips into one cohesive project and comes free with any Mac. With this short tutorial, you can learn how to cut videos in iMovie and become a proficient editor so that you can churn out videos for YouTube, Instagram, or any other platform.

For this tutorial, we used clips from filmmaker Donovan Randolph. Browse our library for even more footage to use in iMovie.

What is iMovie?

iMovie is what pros like to call a nonlinear editor. This is a type of software that you can use to cut and edit videos, music, and graphics without changing any of the original files. They’re powerful tools for filmmakers and are used to edit almost all of today’s Hollywood films. Professional-grade editors like Adobe Premiere Pro and Final Cut cost a fortune and because iMovie is free, it’s a great place for beginners to start.

Like many other Apple products, iMovie is intuitive, keeping the average user in mind. Not everyone is a professional editor with years of experience, and the developers of iMovie know that. This doesn’t mean it isn’t an effective tool. You can still create jaw-dropping projects in iMovie—all it takes is a little practice.

Can I use iMovie on a PC?

The biggest drawback to iMovie is that it only works with Apple products—sorry PC users. However, if you have an iPhone or an iPad you can download iMovie from the App store to edit on a mobile device.
