Make a montage
Combine videos with animated stills
Click here to access the Photos Library. You can then browse through any photos and stills that were captured on your iphone and uploaded to icloud. This gives you a rich range of pictures and clips to edit in imovie.
Choose an album or collection
Click here to choose a Photos album to explore. Double-click on an album or collection’s thumbnail to view its contents. You can preview a clip or still and then drag it straight into imovie’s timeline.
If you add a slo-mo clip to the timeline then it will automatically slow down. You can fine-tune the result by clicking the ‘Speed’ icon above the viewer then choosing a different setting from the Speed drop-down menu.
Add moves to stills
By default imovie adds a four-second camera move to each imported photo. You can change the default zoom in by modifying the size and position of the Ken Burns start and end frames. Trim the clip to change its duration.
Knowledge base Customise the Today view
Instead of swiping through an iphone album to show photos to friends, you can display a musical montage of stills and clips. Go to an album, click ‘Select’ and then click the Share icon. Tap ‘Slideshow’. Tap ‘Options’ to choose a theme (such as Dissolve) and select a music track. Click ‘Done’ to play the slideshow there and then.
