Making Basic Edits

To get a better taste of how the iMovie interface gives you the power of video editing, we'll take a look at how to make a very basic edit using a combination of the Shelf, the Monitor, and the Timeline Viewer.

Preparing a Clip

In this section, we go through the process of making an adjustment to a clip, but first we need to drag the clip into the Timeline Viewer. To prepare the clip, click on it in the Shelf and drag it down and to the uppermost row of Timeline Viewer, which is where you put video clips. When your mouse cursor—which is normally an arrow—changes to an arrow with a “+” next to it, release your mouse button (see Figure 14.15).
