Make a Movie Using iMovie

Apple includes its iMovie video-editing application with its computers. You can use it to create movies of almost any length.

If you’ve purchased a new Macintosh computer, the iMovie HD application can be found in the Applications folder. If you have an older Mac, or an older version of iMovie, you can purchase it as a part of the iLife application suite for $79. The iLife suite includes iDVD (for creating DVDs), GarageBand (for creating music), iTunes (for organizing music), and iPhoto (for organizing digital pictures), in addition to iMovie HD.

Using iMovie HD, you can edit your digital video and then distribute it on videotape, on the Web [Hack #82] , via email, or even on a cell phone [Hack #89] . But to do so, you first have to transfer your video to your computer. You can import video into iMovie using USB, IEEE-1394 (a.k.a. FireWire, i.LINK), or directly from an iSight camera.
