Using iMovie

Happy Tuesday,

Time for a Techy Tip.  I highly recommend using iMovie to create impressive videos on your iPad.  I purchased this app for about $5.99 a couple months ago, and find it very easy to use.  You can upload still shots and videos, and the app blends them together to create a video.  You can also add captions and theme music to further enhance your work.
This is the home page for the app.  You can see the icons on the bottom for getting started.  To add a project, tap the + sign. 

When you start a project you can insert pictures and videos from your camera roll on your iPad.  When you click on the ? symbol in the uper left corner, the app will provide you with simple directions for using each of the noted icons. 

You can also add captions and theme music to your series of still photos and videos.  If there is talking in your video the music will get a bit softer so you can still hear the voices.

I created a video of a class event using iMovie that you can view here.

Remember to check out the blogs of my friends at Collaboration Cuties and Fifth in the Middle for the great giveaways they are having!
