Chapter 3. iMovie > Preview the video footage in your camera

Preview the video footage in your camera

1.
In the iMovie window, click the Camera mode button.

Tip

Don't forget to rewind the tape in your camera before you preview it.If the Monitor shows only a blue screen, you're looking at the unrecorded tape that comes after your last recorded scene.


2.
Click the “Play” button (shown on the left) to view the video from the camera in iMovie's Monitor.

At this point you are just previewing the video. iMovie does not digitize and import any video until you click the “Import” button. Use the controls below the “Import” button to control the camera. Rewind, pause, play, stop, and fast-forward to preview specific scenes.
