With visually stunning graphics and sweeping cinematic soundtracks, iMovie trailers are the perfect way for aspiring home moviemakers to get their big break.*
The perfect template for every story.
Choose from twelve trailer templates, and right off the bat you’ve got a crowd-pleaser in the works. Fairy tales, romances, superhero adventures and more — iMovie trailer templates cover just about any movie genre. Each trailer features unique, customisable titles that flash across the screen. And world-class musicians provide an epic soundtrack. It’s all the makings of a trailer that’s guaranteed to keep ’em on the edge of their seats.
The story unfolds.
Each trailer has its own outline for customising titles and credits, as well as a storyboard that tells you exactly what kind of shots to use. All you have to do is type in your text and drop your video clips into place. Choose from existing footage, or film new scenes on your iPad or iPhone directly in the app. It’s so quick and easy, the trailer practically creates itself.
Shoot video on your iOS device at up to 1080p HD and it automatically appears in iMovie, ready for you to edit just the way you want. With image stabilisation built into the new iPad and iPhone 4S, footage comes out clear and steady. Simply tap to add video and photos, drag to trim clips, and slide to preview your project — you’ll have a five-star short film to share in no time at all.
Pick a theme and run with it.
Make your movie look like a mini-blockbuster with one of eight unique themes. Choose a colourful theme for your birthday party. A monochromatic theme for a rainy-day drama. Or a travel theme for your recent voyage. Each theme comes with great titles, transitions and an accompanying soundtrack that you can mix and match.
Give it your best shots.
Take a photo on your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch to use in your project. Or add photos you synced to your device. iMovie customises each shot with a Ken Burns-style panning effect that uses face detection to keep faces in the frame. And you can enhance your snaps with graphics and text by selecting from a variety of title styles in each theme.
Add some sound to your sights.
iMovie gives you lots of ways to add a little ear candy to your projects. Add background music and fun sound effects from the iMovie library or from your iTunes collection. Export an original soundtrack from GarageBand. Or narrate the action by recording directly into your movie’s timeline. You can easily add, delete and rearrange audio clips. And with iMovie on iPad, you can see dynamic colour-coded waveforms that make it easy to view and adjust audio levels with more precision.
Let your fingers do the fine-tuning.
With a flick of your finger, you have the power to freeze a frame or split a scene in two. Just scrub through your project until you find the perfect moment, then swipe up to add a freeze frame to your timeline, or swipe down to split a clip. If you’re using iMovie on iPad, you can pinch open any transition in your timeline to reveal the Precision Editor. It’s easy to see where one clip ends and another begins, so you can tap and drag to make advanced edits with pinpoint accuracy.
