Okay, I have decided to try to put a tutorial in my vanity site, in hopes that iWeba€™s interface will make it quicker to bang this thing out. If you dona€™t have a copy of iLife 08 (or of iMovie 6) read the above-linked Mac Rumors thread for more suggestions and ideas on how to get a copy on your Mac. Sometimes when I make clips for iMovie I leave out the audio (choose a€?No Sounda€?) since many fan videos mute the clipsa€™ audio anyway.
Select HDV 720p unless you are certain that the HD files you intend to edit are something else. Ia€™m going to assume that you have some familiarity with the workings of iMove 6, so I wona€™t explain all its features here. Click on the clock icon to go to timeline mode, and drag the timeline length (see pink arrow) to the far right so that you can more closely see the length of each clip you edit (as well as more clearly see the audio waveforms of your music). It may take a few tries through the music track to get your rhythm down right, but soon youa€™ll find a a€?beata€? in the music, and so tap, tap, tap as the music finishes playing in iMovie.
If you mess up and want to remove a marker, place the playhead over the offending marker and hold down Option, Apple (aka Control) and the M key, and the marker will disappear. Sometimes, if you want to edit more precisely to the musica€™s timing, you can use the audio waveforms to help you figure out where a beat is in the music.
Scroll through a clip and find the a€?Ina€? and a€?Outa€? points you want to use for that clip.
Youa€™ve got your In and Out points selected in a clip, and everything in between (symbolized by the yellow colored strip in the screenshot to the left here) will be copied and pasted into your timeline by either going to a€?Edit > Copya€? or using the Apple+C keyboard shortcut. However, if you like to drag your clips to the timeline and that works better for you, that is good too! In this screenshot, you see that the little yellow diamond (symbolizing a marker) is farther out than the ending of my clip. I keep on going back and fiddling with the speed controls (Apple+Z used to undo, when I dona€™t go far enough or go to far) until finally I think I have it close enough.


Now, to edit your whole video to the beat, just match up each clip to the markers like this. In my little video, I had a few spots where I made a white a€?flasha€? transition match up with a snappy sound in the music. You have two clips, and you want a transition between them, and you want the transition to match up with the beat of the music. For my a€?white flasha€? transition (I used a€?Wash Ina€?), I chose a shorter duration for the transition. Youa€™re finished with your video, youa€™ve added your credits and titles, and now ita€™s time to get the thing out of iMovie and onto the Web!
After youa€™ve set up all the video and audio and size options, click the Save button and wait for iMovie 6 to export out your fan video. FOR EXPORTING REGULAR DEFINITION (NOT HD) video made in iMovie 6, choose a€?Full Qualitya€? and then open the resulting .dv file in MPEG Streamclip to make a high quality MP4 or MOV file.
If you were editing in regular definition, you should have identified and chosen the correct project aspect ratio as you were setting up your iMovie 6 video. TUTORIAL KEYWORDS: Fan video, vidding, vidder, fanvids, fanvid, fan vid, editing an HD fan video in iMovie 6.
It will take a little fiddling to get the transition timed just right and the clips placed just right, but soon youa€™ll get the hang of it! To see the video, scroll down this page and do a search for a€?Magic and Ecstasy.a€? Or view it on YouTube. But, this Mac Rumors forum thread gave me another idea on how to get iMovie 6 to work on my new Intel Mac Mini (running Snow Leopard!). This version of iMovie will only work if it detects that iLife 08 is installed on your Mac.
But I wanted to cover using markers to edit to the beat of your music, because not all vidders (people who make fan videos) know how to do this in iMovie.


Since I want to make this clipa€™s edge match up with the markers, Ia€™m going to slow down the clip so it meets the marker. I can of course trim back the clip so that its edge now matches up with that marker, but Ia€™d prefer to have it a little less slowed down. That little bit of extra can be trimmed away, so the edge of the clip matches up with the marker placement. For more details and information on editing fanvids in iMovie 6, sign up for the FoolishPassion Fan Video Forums. I had installed iLife 08 on an external hard drive attached to my Mini, and then installed iMovie 6.
Many movies and TV shows are in widescreen so odds are youa€™ll be using that, but check the aspect ratio of your source clips to make sure.) This tutorial may help you understand aspect ratio.
Ita€™ll take a while as iMovie imports and converts all the H.264 MOV files youa€™ve made into HDV, the video format iMovie uses for editing. Then, switch iMovie to a€?timelinea€? mode and expand the timeline as l-o-n-g as it will go. As you edit and place clips in the timeline, you will notice that the edges of your clips will a€?snapa€? to the markers. As the music plays, start to tap, tap, tap on the M key (remember, you already are holding down Shift and Apple aka Command keys) to the beat of the music.
If you tap too frequently (more than once a second) iMovie will give you an error message about how you cana€™t do that.
