iMovie Fun


imovie funAll these months of Murphy Mac, and this is the first iMovie post. It must be something good.

Murphy is going to show you how to make elements in your movie vanish from the screen. Here are the basics: Put your camera somewhere it won’t move, like a tripod. Film your subject in motion. Let the camera keep rolling and get a shot of your background without the subject.

In iMovie you’ll do a simple Cross Dissolve from the clip with your subject to a clip or still of just your background. The subject will gradually fade out and disappear from the movie.

This works great with something like kids running across a field or skiing or jumping rope – or just about anything.
