Yesterday, our students volunteered a day's worth of time to help elementary students learn about bike safety. I decided to video and take pictures of the entire process, but wasn't really sure what I would do with the images and video.
On the way home, I decided this would be a perfect excuse...err reason for me to purchase the iMovie app for iPad to discover its features. One other video editing app that I have used in the past is REEL DIRECTOR. I like it, but it is rather cumbersome to use.
I really enjoyed and became proficient at using iMovie for iPad in a within 1 hour of first use. The timeline and features that go with it are efficient. The themes are a nice addition. Adding video was extremely easy as it is located in the list of videos. Same with pictures and songs.
I really like how sound from video clips mutes the song of the entire movie while it is playing. Adding voice to a video clip is easy as well.
I also purchased Extras4iMovie, and Scroll Credits. Both apps have an incredible amount of additional backgrounds and clip art. I used the Extras4iMovie to create the scrolling edits at the end. I nice feature.
I will be using iMovie more than Reel Director from now on based on the fact that my user experience with iMovie was better than Reel Director.
