All-New Audio Editing
Go from indie filmmaker to master sound editor with new audio editing tools in iMovie. Sound effects, voiceover and music — you control them all. iMovie shows you detailed audio waveforms for all your clips. They’re colour-coded, so you can see where the audio is overpowering. To adjust the audio levels of a clip or part of a clip, just drag the volume slider. To shorten or extend fades, drag the fade edges. As you make changes, waveforms update immediately so you always see what you hear. And the new single-row view shows you your entire movie project in one horizontal row, so it’s easier to preview and edit your soundtrack.

What’s a movie without a great cast? iMovie makes it easy to find your stars without digging through all your footage. By analysing your video for faces, People Finder identifies the parts with people in them and tells you how many are in each scene. It also finds the close-ups, medium shots or wide angles so it's easy to grab video clips as you need them. People Finder is great to use while you make movie trailers. You can quickly find the right shots and drop them into the movie trailer storyboard.
