If you do not use iCloud and would like access on a PC or a web browser then you can use DropBox, this free app (sign up required) will allow you to save photos and videos to a folder in the cloud. You can access this folder on both iPhone, iPad and also your computer. You also have to give Dropbox permission to access your photos from the iPhone app In ...

There is not any reference to custom aspect ratio on iMovie's manual, neither any setting in the project's or crop tool's properties. If custom aspect ratios would supported from iMovie, I believe that Apple would make them easy to find.. After all, iMovie is a consumer product, and they have excluded such "advanced" features in order to get more ...

Connect your camcorder and use iMovie HD to import the tape, then export using Share>Quicktime. It will create one file out of the tape. Edit: In response to Sajee's comment below. Choose Share>Quicktime>Compress movie for: Full Quality. As implied, there won't be any loss of quality.

Since PhotoStream doesn't work for videos, your best bet is probably a 3rd party app. If you're worried about your pictures being stored on the Internet, you might want to try an app such as PhotoSync ($2) or Photo Transfer App ($3). The former seems like it uses your Bluetooth or Wi-Fi connection to transfer between the two devices rather than uploading ...

Keynote for iOS does not support this. Apparently Apple does not provide any mechanism for screen-recording (video) within iOS 7, and will not permit any third-party app that enables this. There have been some apps that can do screen recording on iOS 7, but they require jailbreaking the device, and are not authorized by Apple through the App Store. The ...

You can export your movie to a format of your wishes (.avi, .dv, ...) and then you can burn this on a disk with a suitable software suite (Roxio Toast or with the built in software of Lion/Mac OS) EDIT: for free, software, I would recommend you use Burn

This type of alignment/syncing is why the clapboard was invented! Without one, you'll have to be a little more meticulous when you manually align the clips. This post on the Apple Support forums suggests a few helpful features to use: The basic feature you want to use is cutaways. Audio waveforms can be used for visual alignment. Playing audio from both ...

Handbrake should be able to handle AVCHD files. It relies on some codec library files from VLC player, so it may help to have that installed as well. Handbrake uses ffmpeg underneath the hood. Alternatively, AVIdemux may also be useful. It's a bit more of an editor than just an encoder, but if it can read the source files, it should be able to output the ...

Versions of iMovie after iMovie HD don't support plugins and extra effects. You're looking for something more along the lines of Apple Final Cut Express ($170) or Adobe Premiere Elements ($80). Both let you make photo slideshows with titles, effects, transitions, and music; and both let you install free and paid plugins for more. Hope this helps.

Not really, you've utilised the quickest, easiest and cheapest route available with doing it with Handbrake. Don't bother trying to find another piece of software that will do the job better, Handbrake is really the best when it comes to ripping and encoding Apple friendly formats. Thanks, hope this helps.

I have an older Canon Mini-DV camera and the process was quite painless when I brought the video in to my Mac. Obtain the necessary firewire cable to connect your camera to your Mac. Honestly, this was the hardest part for me. Make sure the camera is plugged in to the wall (you don't want the battery dying during import) and the tape is in the camera and ...

No. Apple has removed it from the download section of their site as of about January 26, 2009. See: http://www.macrumors.com/2009/01/27/imovie-hd-6-no-longer-available-for-download/ The direct download link in that article now returns a 404 error.

There are a few ways to get a single large DV file imported from tape, depending on whether your constraint is budget or time: 1) QuickTime Pro 7 has a recording mode that can see DV devices. Yes, Apple still charges $29.99 for it, but the interface is simple and lets you record a long, single file. Just make sure the capture format in the app's preferences ...

For apps that don't support two-factor authentication, such as iMovie, you need to generate an application-specific password. This is a computer generated password that can be used to give an app access to Google services, but is intended for use in a single app. Go here to manage your connected apps and application-specific passwords. Once you generate one ...

First steps, in iPhoto: Create an Smart Album (⌥+⌘+N). Name it Movies, or whatever you like. Under "Match the following condition:", set the first drop-down to Filename, then next to "Contains", type "mov" in the box (without the quotes). This assumes all of your movies were created with an iDevice. If you have Vine videos you'd like to move as well, ...

I think I've fixed my problem. I had 1000+ movies in iPhoto, and since iMovie just treats them as 1 huge "event" it was trying to open an event with 1000+ movies in it. My HD only had ~10GB empty. I exported them all out of iPhoto, moved them to an external HD, separated them out into individual folders and imported each folder 1 by 1 as a separate event, ...

You should be able to download them with your Apple ID (the one used when you bought or registered your new Mac) from the Mac App Store. You can try to log in, and then see if you have access to them (you should also have access to the OS X, so you can re-install it too), otherwise you should contact Apple, so you get access to the free apps - and OS X ...

⌘-click on all the pictures that you want to adjust the timing of in the timeline. Go to Window → Show Adjustments Bar or press 3. Select the info button on the adjustments bar. Enter the duration into the box on the right and press Enter. This will change the duration of all the selected clips (or in this case, pictures).

I haven't used iMovie specifically but I have used Final Cut Pro X. And AFAIK they source media the same way. Generally, it works excellently if you keep the following things in mind: The external drive needs to be "fast enough" (Basically: USB 3 or Thunderbolt)* To save power most external HDDs will enter sleep mode after a certain amount of inactivity. ...

As part of Dive Into HTML5, Mark Pilgrim gives two options: Encoding Ogg Video With Firefogg Batch Encoding Ogg Video With ffmpeg2theora One or both of those should work for you.

I think your problem has something to do with not having the right Codecs (the bit of software that translates one type of video to another type). @Martin is right - if you can convert your video yourself you'll solve your problem, but it would be even better if you can teach iMovie to convert it for you. Try installing both Perian and DivX (I'm too new to ...

I’m not sure I understand you… you created a Movie Project in iMovie 7 (which if I’m not mistaken is the iLife ’08 version) and now you want to move it to an external drive? You don’t mention your Mac OS X’s version but that shouldn’t really make much of a difference. Ok should the above be correct, you have to locate your project in your hard drive. It ...

Becuase Apple Animation is an older QuickTime format, you should give QuickTime Player 7 a try, which has basic editing capabilities. If you're on Snow Leopard, it may not be installed, but you can fix that pretty quickly If you need more than what QuickTime Player provides, it might be worth looking at QuickTime Pro.

I don't think it's possible to make the clips shorter then 5ms in any video software, because depending on the frame rate a single frame takes more time (16,6 ms for 60 fps). It doesn't make much sense to add a clip to a video, that is so short that it is not seen on screen for at least one frame.

You have so many choices on OS X. Here it goes, take a look at this tutorial link for your question answered step by step. Other excellent (and easy!) software to use are: -iRip it from The Little App Factory -Permute from Fuel Collective -iFlicks from Jendrick Bertram I translated the last one in French for...French users ;) Hope this will help you!

Handbrake is free but not the most user friendly. Here is a great tutorial on using Handbrake: http://www.methodshop.com/gadgets/tutorials/handbrake/index.shtml My personal favorite (for ripping movies for playback on your Mac) is MacDVDRipper Pro ( http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/31118/mac-dvdripper-pro) which actually rips the disk image to your Mac ...

From iMovie, go to Share-> Export Using QuickTime. Set the Export: menu is set to Movie to MPEG-4. Click the Options... button next to that menu. Set the File Format to MP4 Set the Video Format to H.264 Set the Data Rate to something like 2048 Set the Image Size to 1080 Click OK Click Save That should give you a much better-quality video. Hope this helps! ...

I came across this page because I had a similar situation and think I have found a solution that worked for me will work for others in the same situation. I was doing a screen capture video and my screen res is 1440x900 (imac). In the video I was making I was doing a tutorial on photoshop and when I opened it up in imovie it only offered 16:9, 4:3, and 3:2. ...

Even though iDvd is a bit of a mothballed application, you might be able to get around your hassles with one of these workarounds (iDVD was always a little buggy transferring from iMovie to iDVD anyway). Try exporting your slideshow from iMovie using the default settings of Share -> 'Export Movie using Quicktime', then import that .mov or .dv file into DVD ...

The cheapest option is to use quartz composer to assemble the individual clips and mix them down. It is not designed like iMovie or Final Cut Express with shortcuts and ready build transitions, but it is free with Xcode 3. You have to register and agree to Apple's developer tools restrictions before downloading Xcode 3. You want the free program at the ...
