Chapter 15. Working with Photos and Movies > Exporting an iMovie to Camera

Exporting an iMovie to Camera

When you're working on an iMovie project, your goal might be to create a slideshow of still images, or a movie production complete with special effects, transitions, and titles. You could even create and store a video of your dog sleeping on the couch. Whatever your intentions, you're going to want to move it from your computer. One way to move an iMovie is to use the Export option and export the movie to an attached camera. When you export a movie, you have three options: Export To Camera, To QuickTime (), or To iDVD. When you export to camera, you hook your video camera to your computer, and record directly to the camera's video cartridge, or you could hook up a VHS video recorder and record back to the VHS tape.

Export an iMovie to Camera

Open an iMovie project.

Click the Full Screen Preview button, and then test the movie.

Attach your recording device to the computer (camera or video recorder).

Click the File menu, and then click Export.

Click the Export pop-up, and then click To Camera.

Select from the following To Camera options:

  • Wait X Seconds For Camera To Get Ready. Enter the number of seconds you want the video to pause before starting.

  • Add X Seconds Of Black Before Movie. Enter the number of seconds of black you want to appear at the beginning of the movie.

  • Add X Seconds Of Black To End Of Movie. Enter the number of seconds of black you want to appear at the end of the movie.

Click Export.

Click the File menu, and then click Save Project.
