Chapter 14. Building the Movie Track > Full-Screen Playback Mode

14.8. Full-Screen Playback Mode

Whenever you're tempted to play your movie-in-progress, consider clicking the Play Full Screen button (the darkened triangle to the right of the round Play button). It makes the playback—even if it's already underway—fill the entire computer screen.


Tip:

Remember that iMovie 4 lets you select nonconsecutive clips in the Timeline Viewer. You could, for example, select only clips 1, 4, 8, and 11 (by -clicking them).

In full-screen playback, iMovie even plays only the selected clips, even if that means skipping over some of the clips in your Movie Track. That's a huge advantage when you're experimenting with different sequences of clips—for example, when you want to show people a certain sequence with and without an intervening shot in hopes of asking their opinion.
