Apple introduces a new version of iMovie featuring Storyboard and Magic Movie
iMovie 3.0 makes it easier than ever for anyone to share their video stories
Apple today introduced a new version of iMovie with features that make it easier than ever to create beautiful edited videos on iPhone and iPad. Storyboards help aspiring content creators and filmmakers learn how to edit and improve video storytelling skills with pre-made templates for popular types of videos shared on social media, with colleagues or with classmates – videos like DIYs, cooking classes, and product reviews , scientific experiments, and more. Storyboards make it easy to get started with flexible clip lists and step-by-step instructions for clips for each video type. For those who want to make a video faster, Magic Movie instantly creates a polished video from the clips and images selected by the user, and automatically adds transitions, effects and music to the editing. Both new features include a range of styles to help customize the final look and feel of your video, including titles, filters, transitions, color palettes, and music, all designed to work together.
“iMovie has empowered millions of people around the world to create and share their stories through video,” said Bob Purchers, Apple’s Vice President of Global Product Marketing. “This latest release of iMovie, featuring Storyboard and Magic Movie, simplifies the video creation process even further, and we believe it will continue to inspire the next wave of video creators to get up and running.”
Learn and improve video storytelling with storyboards
Storyboards give users a head start in the video creation process, helping beginners learn to edit and improve their storytelling skills. Instead of starting with a blank timeline, creators can choose from 20 different storyboards featuring a variety of popular video types, including cooking lessons, Q&A, product reviews, news reports, and more. Each storyboard has a list of clips that organize clips to tell a specific story. Each placeholder also includes an explanatory thumbnail, along with a tip that asks a question or offers a suggestion on how to shoot that clip to make it more interesting. For further customization, snapshots can be added, rearranged, and deleted from the storyboard as needed.
Creators can experiment by applying different video styles that include titles and transitions, as well as options for title layouts, fonts, filters, and color palettes. Music tracks are dynamically adjusted to fit the length of the project, and users can enhance each clip with intuitive editing tools such as trim, split, clip speed, and clip size.
Completed Storyboard videos are easily shared from iMovie via Messages, Mail, and across social media platforms.
Create videos instantly with Magic Movie
Magic Movie helps create beautiful custom videos – complete with titles, transitions, and music – in just a few clicks. To create a Magic Movie, the user simply selects an album, or any set of photos or images from his library, and Magic Movie instantly selects the best parts of the shot and creates the project. Creators can put their own spin on Magic Movie easily by rearranging or deleting clips in the simplified Magic Movie shot menu, or by editing the project further. Styles can be added to change the look and feel of the entire video. Like Storyboard videos, Magic Movies from iMovie can be shared via messages, mail, and on social media.
iMovie 3.0, including new Storyboards and Magic Movie features, is available today as a free update on the App Store for devices running iOS 15.2 or later and iPadOS 15.2 or later.
