Adding Titles

An iMovie wouldn't be complete without adding titles to your work of art. Titles lays over the images. You can create titles that scroll, and even use titles for credits at the end of the movie. Titles add the finishing touch to a movie. For example, you could have an opening title complete with subtitles such as: Starring, Produced by, and Directed by. At the end of the movie you could have a set of rolling credits.
