Exporting to QuickTime

Exporting your movie to QuickTime can be as straightforward or as complicated as you want it to be. Understanding that most users won’t wade into the complexities of what the QuickTime format can offer, iMovie gives you five pre-configured settings. Following are the basic steps for creating a QuickTime movie from your footage; the intricacies of what QuickTime can do are on the next page.

To export as a QuickTime movie:

1.
Choose Export from the File menu, or press Command-Shift-E.

2.
In the iMovie: Export dialog box, select a format from the Formats popup menu (Figure 15.1). These are some common settings for various types of distribution (such as Web versus CD-ROM). See “Choosing a QuickTime format” below for explanations and examples of each.
