Part 2: Editing > Titles

Chapter 12. Titles

In Hollywood, movie titles aren’t mere words that flash up on the screen. Actors, agents, and studio executives negotiate for the length of time a person’s name appears, how large or small the typeface is, whether the name comes before or after the movie title, and all sorts of other conditions that inflame my natural aversion to fine print. Hopefully, you won’t deal with any of that, because the other aspects of movie titles—i.e., actually creating them—are made extraordinarily easy in iMovie.

The program’s title capabilities are more robust than one would think, though I’ll admit I’d like to see more typographic control in future versions. In the meantime, use the titling features with the knowledge that, as with a lot of iMovie capabilities, you’re creating elements quickly and cheaply that used to cost a fortune for studios and filmmakers.
