17.3. Recording Narration

If anyone ever belittles iMovie for being underpowered, point out an iMovie feature that isn't even available in most expensive video-editing programs: the ability to record narration while you watch your movie play.

You can create a reminiscence, narrating as the video plays (thereby creating a voice-over).You can identify your home movies—when or where they were shot, for example. Doctors use iMovie to create narrated slideshows, having created a Movie Track filled with still images of scanned slides. Realtors feature camcorder footage of houses under consideration, while narrating the key features that can't be seen ("Built in 1869, this house was extensively renovated in 1880…"). And it doesn't take much imagination to see how lawyers can exploit iMovie.
