Storyboards help aspiring content creators and moviemakers learn to edit and improve their video storytelling skills with pre-made templates for popular types of videos shared on social, with colleagues, or with classmates — videos like DIYs, cooking tutorials, product reviews, science experiments, and more.
Storyboards make it easy to get started with flexible shot lists and step-by-step guidance on which clips to capture for each video type.
For those who want to create a video even faster, Magic Movie instantly creates a polished video from the clips and photos a user selects, automatically adding transitions, effects, and music to the edit.
Both new features include a range of styles to help personalize the final look and feel of a video, including titles, filters, transitions, colour 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,” saidBobBorchers, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing.
“This latest version of iMovie, featuring Storyboards and Magic Movie, simplifies video creation even further, and we think it will continue to inspire the next wave of video creators to dive in and get started.”
Creators can experiment by applying different video styles that include titles and transitions, as well as options for title layouts, fonts, filters, and colour palettes.
Music tracks dynamically adjust to fit the length of a project, and users can refine each clip with intuitive editing tools like trim, split, clip speed, and clip volume.
Completed Storyboard videos are easily shared from iMovie through Messages, Mail, and across social media platforms.
