iMovie for Mac

A major production.
Without the major production.

iMovie for Mac lets you enjoy your videos like never before. Browse your clips more easily, instantly share your favourite moments, and create beautiful HD movies and Hollywood-style trailers. And when you’re ready to premiere on all your devices, iMovie Theater rolls out the red carpet.


The home of home video.

If you have an iPhone or iPad, not to mention a camcorder or digital camera, you probably have a lot
of great video. And when you want to do something with it, iMovie gets you into the action. All
your clips are organised in one place — where they’re easy to browse, fun to watch, and ready to be
made into the next great movie or trailer.

Make movies

Rated S for simple.

It’s never been easier to make it in the movies. Just choose the clips you want to use. Insert titles, add
effects and create a full soundtrack, with powerful tools that are as easy as drag and drop. And that,
ladies and gentlemen, is a wrap. See how to make movies in iMovie

Create trailers

Hollywood. You can make it here.

You have hundreds of videos. And one big dream to make it in the movies. iMovie takes care of the
editing and lets you quickly create fun trailers from all that footage — and make it look like
something straight out of Hollywood. See how to make trailers in iMovie

iMovie Theater

And now for your feature presentation.

Introducing iMovie Theater. It’s your own personal screening room where you can show off the movies and trailers you’ve made. They appear as a beautiful display of movie posters, so you’ll always be the star
of the show. And with iCloud, they’re automatically on all your devices, even your Apple TV.*


Lights. Camera. Reaction.

What’s a movie without an audience? iMovie gives you even more ways to share with your most loyal fans. Post it on the web for everyone to see. Or email it to a select crowd. Get your movie out there,
then sit back and take all the credit.

Now in worldwide release.

When you’re ready to present your movie on multiple screens, you can upload it to Facebook, YouTube, Vimeo and CNN iReport. Email HD video to friends with Mail Drop. Or save a particular frame from your video as an image. Soon, you’ll be playing everywhere.

New for app developers

Create video previews for the App Store.

If you develop apps, iMovie lets you make previews that can bring your apps to life. Just capture real-time app footage from your iPhone or iPad using QuickTime Player on your Mac. Edit it in iMovie. And polish your production with 11 Apple-designed titles to showcase your app in action. And when your preview is ready for its debut, use the App Preview share option to export a video file that’s ready to be uploaded to iTunes Connect.
