Chapter 3. iMovie > Email option

Email option

Send a small movie to someone through email. iMovie will compress the movie to 10 frames per second (digital video is usually 30 frames per second) and 160 x 120 pixels with monaural sound (not stereo). Even a short and highly compressed movie makes a large file, so don't send long movies through email unless absolutely necessary.

1.
Open an iMovie project.

2.
From the File menu, choose “Share….” Click the “Email” icon.

3.
From the “Send email using” pop-up menu, choose the name of the email program you use.

4.
Type a name for the exported movie in the “Name of saved movie” text field.

5.
Click the “Share” button. The chosen email application opens with the exported movie attached to a new message form (below-right).

6.
Type a message, put an address in the “To” field, then send the email.
