Adding Effects

An iMovie wouldn't be complete without adding effects to your work of art. Effects () let you change the look of an image or movie clip. For example, making a clip looked aged or converting a clip from color to black and white. Effects are applied directly to a clip (still images or movies), and they change the appearance of the clip. For example, you could use the Rain effect to give a movie the appearance of rain. There's even a Fog effect to give your movies that sense of drama and mystery. It goes without saying that effects can be overused, and instead of helping support the message they actually become a distraction. Use them when needed, but use them with care.

Add Effects

Open an iMovie project.

Click the Clip Viewer button.

Select the clip on the Timeline in which you want to apply an effect.

Click the Effects tab.

Select an effect style from the Effects list.

Click Preview to preview the effect.

Drag the Effect In and Effect Out sliders to control the speed at which the effect enters and exits the clip.

Use the directional arrows (available for some transitions), to adjust the position of the transition.

Different effects have different options. Use the Effect options to control how the effect appears.

Click Preview again to view the effect.

Click the Apply button.

Click the File menu, and then click Save Project.
