No notes for slide
  • Note: you can move these spaces around
  • Arrow button switches location of gallery and Event Library ; also File: import; movies etc.
  • Voiceover: sometime better to do the work in garageband and then share to itunes, then import
  • new Rolling Shutter option which helps to cut down on wobbly or skewed video caused by the CMOS image sensor still prevalent on most consumer camcorders. Click on “Reduce motion distortion” to enable it for a clip and after your video is analyzed, use the pulldown to select an amount from None to Extra High. Apple recommends High or Extra High for footage shot with a Flip camcorder or a mobile phone that records video, which presumably includes the iPhone 4. (It did indeed look better in our quick, unscientific tests.)  
  • The processes of stabilization and analyzing video for the presence of people can take a long time.
  • Project browser, select the audio clip you want to give priority, select the “Ducking” checkbox, and then move the slider to reduce the volume of competing audio by a specific percentage. Open the clip in question, select the Audio tab on the Inspector   Equalizer function, which you can customize entirely on your own or pick from one of nine presets, including Voice Enhance, Music Enhance and Hum Reduction, which should help tame less than dynamic audio recordings and keep annoying electrical line hums at bay.   “ Reduce background noise by” and adjust the slider, then listen to the results. bringing down the unwanted background noise and making people speaking in the foreground that much more audible.  
  • For example, if the selected audio is a voiceover clip you’ve recorded in your project, by “ducking” the other audio tracks, the voiceover can be heard clearly above the competing sounds from background music and sound effects.
  • To change the duration of the title, click on the blue icon and drag on one of its edges (a title can span several clips). To delete a title, select it and press the Delete key on your keyboard.
