About This Class

This is the 13th chapter of The Complete iMovie course, especially built with beginners and advanced users in mind.  This whole class was built using iMovie.  This course was actually created INSIDE this course!

<- Chapter 12
-> Chapter 14

Sound is at least 50% of your movie!!!  In Chapter 13 we'll add sound & music to our movies.  We'll look at the different sources we can take sound & music from. We'll cover many ways to change the volume, manually and automatically and we'll see how to add fade-ins and fade-outs to our clips.  We'll learn the sound enhancements provided in iMovie and we'll explain what the Background Music Well is meant for.
We'll also cover 3 PRO lessons: I'll show you how to detach the audio from the video to manipulate your audio independently from your video and then I'll show you 2 tricks I use to make sure the music fits the best to the movie being shown.

You probably got iMovie for free, but do you know everything there is to know about it?

I'll show you all the features of iMovie - no prior knowledge required - but I'll also give you my secrets with many pro tips to overcome many limitations in iMovie and perform some nifty tricks.

So if you want to impress everyone with your amazing movies, enroll in this class!
