Editing in iMovie (and FCP X)

Opening Items

  • Thanks, Mike Tillyer: White House K-12 Student Film Festival
  • iVIE Deadline: March 7, 2014 5 PM
  • 4 Cameras for checkout have been ordered. We'll let you know when they arrive.
  • Upcoming Project LIVE Meetings:
    • January 13: Finishing (fine-tuning edits, adding titles and credits, adding effects, color correction, exporting, etc.)
    • February 3: Optional Work Session: put on your finishing touches with real-time, targeted help from us. Meet the iVIE deadline comfortably and avoid last minute panic. Feel free to bring up to 4 students to help with the editing. Note: If you want to earn the double credit for attending all meetings, you do need to come. Sorry.
  • Take a look at the 2013 Suggested Purchases tab (above) for some suggestions for purchases. If there are things beyond that that you'd like some suggestions on, let me know and I'll do some research.
  • Spreadsheet to keep track of purchases (you need to go File > Make a Copy to get an editable version). Name your copy PL_last name (e.g. PL_maggi). Also, be sure to share it with me. We'll turn this in around the first of March or so. Here's a movie showing the process.
  • Don't forget to sign out.
  • The Pages documents used tonight have been added to the Tamara's Handouts link on the Pre-production page (bottom, under Storyboards and Shot Lists)
  • Adding the Sound Files to the Media Browser in iMovie
