•Cre­ate a spooky, hor­ror-style in­tro se­quence

TV shows such as The Walk­ing Dead put their au­di­ence on edge from the start us­ing their ti­tle se­quence. Shots of aban­doned houses and empty land­scapes are graded to cre­ate a dark take on re­al­ity (es­pe­cially when ac­com­pa­nied by a me­nac­ing theme tune). Thanks to imovie’s suite of grad­ing tools and ef­fects we can give our pris­tine HD footage a rough and ready ana­logue look that will suit a spooky ti­tle se­quence. By de­fault you can only add one ef­fect to a clip in imovie, whereas in Fi­nal Cut Pro X you can add mul­ti­ple ef­fect lay­ers. We’ll show you how to work round imovie’s one ef­fect limit to add a range of ef­fects to change the mood of your clips.
