  1. Seriously, I am the WORST with everything technology and you are the best at breaking it down into simple steps. Thanks so much! Keep it up!

  2. Thanks a lot, i’ve been looking for a video like this for a while, you earned my respect.
    Subscribe I will! Oh, and don’t forget a like.

  3. Hello, just found you through a general search. I’m looking for a tutorial on inserting free music into my videos, not canned preloaded in my MAC. HAVE YOU CREATED A TUTORIAL LIKE THIS??

  4. I’ve always known how to use imovie and put in clips, I just need to know how to put in transitions between the clips to make the video edit look cool and most importantly, I need to learn how to copy a video from youtube and paste it into the iMovie app on my laptop.

  5. I’ve got to say I really like the content you’re producing and it’s helped me tremendously on figuring all this stuff out. Doesn’t hurt to see the surf shot in the background either.

  6. The problem I had with iMovie is that the resolution only can get to 720p, it can’t 1080p and 4k.
    I tried watching videos how to fix it, but it does not work. Does anyone know how I can fix it?

  7. I’ve been using iMovie for a really long time but still decided to watch the video. This is an excellent tutorial video and there was a couple new things I learned in it! Good job Justin, keep it up!👍🏼 I’ll be watching your Final Cut Pro video soon!

  8. New subscriber thank you so much I’m so new at this and this video really did help me I was using DaVinci Resolve and for me a little hard so glad to of found this iMovie app. Again thanks

  9. Good stuff man. I like the video even though i use Windows 10. I do want to get a MacBook Air to use iMovie and Final Cut Pro X

  10. Man, do I have a lot to learn. And I thought I was gettin’ pretty good with this. Holy smokes there’s so much I didn’t know it could do. For being a relatively introductory video editor (and free), iMovie is very powerful. The education continues….THANK YOU JUSTIN!

  11. Mark you are the best thank you so much for helping now ive been uploading gaming videos thanks man i owe you one 😉

  12. I wish i could have seen the final product played out….anyways. Love this thank you and I’m a new Sub today…

  13. i’ve seen many people explaining video editing process, but this video is the simplest and the most straight forward. Thanks for sharing.

  14. Hi everyone – I am just starting out editing videos on a Macbook Pro 2009 running sierra. I don’t have and can’t download iMovie and I can’t afford screen flow . Can anyone help me? I just need to edit videos I am uploading to you tube (nothing complex) – thanks in advance.

  15. Is it easy to import/copy/download media that you can use for a video and use any audio to create a kind of movie? Would this be copyright or no or am I safe to use pretty much anything I want?

  16. I use mac os x l capitan and edit video by adobe premiere pro, but I have problem, I can’t preview. if I add transition, it’s really stresses ..
    Btw I use adobe premiere pro cc 2017
    Help me please dude!

  17. Just wanted to say a big Thanks! for this video, I wanted a video to show to my son about how to start in video editing. This explained it perfectly! Great work mate. Cheers!
