More title and text tips: iMovie ’11

iMovie ’11 is by far one of the best free editing software programs that’s available to Mac users, but one drawback of using the preset fonts for titles is that everyone who uses iMovie generally uses the same titles.

There may be times when you want your titles to have a unique look. iMovie has a feature that allows you to customize your titles and it is very simple to use.

    Amani, awesome tutorial, plus tons of bonus tips! Thanks so much. Cool, since you are such a wiz, I'll have to muse on more questions! 🙂 Sweet!

    With gratitude,


  2. No worries. Glad to help out. That's why we're here.

  3. Greetings Amani,

    I’ve watched two lessons so far. Thanks for the assistance!

    Question: do you use a mouse or the finger pad to manipulate the cursor? It seems like you and Chip are working very efficiently with a mouse. I use my fingers and now I’m wondering if I could work faster using a mouse.


  4. I actually use the finger pad, but I don’t think that many other people do when editing. It tends to slow down the process.
