Ratings and Reviews
Decent tutorial, but potentially confusing for some
This collection of videos covers the interface and all the tools, but could use some polish. I've taught total novices how to use many different apps over the years, and I know how vital it is to make a clean presentation. For example, the narrator for these tutorials fails to mention that merely passing the cursor over a clip will "scrub" the video. Most media players will scrub with a click-and-drag along the timeline. If one clicks-and-drags in iMovie, one will select a segment of the video. I know this omission is significant because novices always click, pull, hit Return and do all kinds of things without being told. "Did I tell you to double-click that? I said 'select that with one click.'"
Another example is the detour the narrator takes while showcasing the vertical and horizontal modes of the timeline. He gets into this whole "paragraph" analogy that is irrelevant and confusing. The "folded," vertical mode has nothing to do with the logical partitioning of paragraphs in writing.
Again, not a bad tutorial (I gave it four stars). But it is potentially confusing to the complete novice, many of whom hang on every word when tackling "complicated" apps, such as iMovie.
I never tried editing any of the short .mov files I'd made over the years and wanted to arrange some for a gift. I fired up iMovie for the very first time and after a few hours I still had no idea of what I was doing and had no results. After spending some time with "Tutor" I was able to construct a short video in less than an hour. No Spielberg mind you but my family loved it.
Good but not needed...
Ok, so i already had iVideo '11 for a couple of days before i purchased this tutorial, and I have to say, it didn't blew me off the way I thought it would. I thought I barely scratched the surface of the program, and I wanted to see more but... Most of the things (like 75-80%) the narrator said through the video, you can figure out yourself just by trial and error (also holding the mouse cursor over the buttons until the pop-up window appears showing you what is it for, furthermore the program is user-frinedly and logical so you'll pick it up quick). There were only couple of things in the tutorial I didn't know which I believe I would figure out if spent a little more time on it.
Anyway, it's a good tutorial for people who are lazy and would rather spend 5$ then exploring it them selfs, which is for me far better then any tutorial.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
