Apple releases a new version of iMovie featuring Storyboards and Magic Movie.
iMovie lets you create cinema-quality videos and let your imagination run wild. You can edit videos on the fly or explore iMovie on your Mac. Using the new Magic Movie and Storyboards on iPhone or iPad, you can craft your masterpiece from scratch or ask for help.
Apple introduced iMovie today, a new video editing app that makes editing videos on iPhones and iPads easier than ever. By using pre-made templates for videos shared on social media, with colleagues, or with classmates – such as DIY videos, cooking tutorials, product reviews, science experiments, and more – Storyboards help aspiring video storytellers learn how to edit. It is easy to use Storyboards, with flexible shot lists and step-by-step instructions on which clips to capture. Magic Movie allows users to create polished videos even faster by automatically adding transitions, effects, and music to the clips and photos they select. You can add titles, filters, transitions, colour palettes, and music to customize your video’s final look in both new features.
Bob Borchers, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing, said, “iMovie has empowered millions of people around the world to create and share their stories through video,”. “This latest version of iMovie, featuring Storyboards and Magic Movie, simplifies video creation even further, and we think it will continue to inspire the next wave of video creators to dive in and get started.”
Improve your video storytelling skills with storyboards
By creating storyboards, beginners can quickly learn how to edit and improve their storytelling skills. As an alternative to starting with a blank timeline, users can choose from 20 different storyboards featuring popular video types, including cooking tutorials, Q&As, product reviews, and news reports. Each storyboard contains a shot list that organizes clips into a narrative. An illustrative thumbnail is also provided for each placeholder, along with a tip that suggests how to make that clip more interesting. Adding, reordering, and deleting shots can be done in a storyboard.
Creators can experiment with different video styles using the video style options, including titles and transitions, fonts, filters, and colour palettes. Users can customize music tracks by trimming, splitting, speeding up, and increasing the volume of each clip, and tracks dynamically adjust according to the length of a project.
You can share completed Storyboard videos through Messages, Mail, and social media platforms from within iMovie.
Magic Movie allows you to create videos instantly.
With Magic Movie, you can create beautiful videos with titles, transitions, and music in just a few taps. A Magic Movie can be made by selecting an album or any group of photos or images from your library, and Magic Movie will identify the best parts of the footage. Users can easily customize their Magic Movie by rearranging or deleting clips in the simplified shot list or by editing the project further, users can easily customize their Magic Movie. You can add styles to change the look and feel of the video. Magic Movies can also be shared via Messages, Email, and social media, just like Storyboard videos.
