Creating Your Own Movies


Your iMac includes all the software you need to make top-quality movies from your own video footage. You can import video from a digital camcorder, iOS device, or a digital camera; edit the footage; add titles and credits; and give the movie a soundtrack. You can then share the movie with other apps, export the movie to a file, or post it on YouTube.
