I know it's weird to see me doing iMovie tutorial. But I've been getting a lot of questions about it, to be honest with you. So I am going to throw out a iMovie tutorial for iMovie users out there, every once in a while okay. This is a real simple one. One guy who just started using iMovie want to know how to add still photos. And another one is how to do the Ken Burns Effect and add a still frame, okay.
How to add still photos is real easy. Over here and your little buttons you click the camera, and it will bring up your browser. And you can navigate to where your photos are. And then you pick your photos from this little thing here like this you can see I can grab it, and I drag it and you can how it highlights in blue.
And that's how much of the photo how much the video the photo is going to be over topped with. Now if I let go here, you'll see this little bar above the photo two seconds long. And I can take it and drag it down and stretch it. As you can see when I go over top the photo fades in. That's as easy is it that's it, that's how you do it. To deleted you just select it hit the Delete key, and that's it.
So now let me show you how to add a photo a still frame. Navigate to the frame you want as a still frame, right-click. Now I have my event browser in my timeline, I call it my timeline where you actually edit your video. I have it switched it's usually reversed, where I am working usually on top.
But I like to switch it round, because I am used to the timeline, and my timeline is in the bottom. So I'll switch ground in case you you are wondering. What I am going to do is right-click where I want to add still frame. I am going to go down say Add Still Frame To Project, zip and there is my still frame.
So now I can take the still frame, let's take it anywhere I want. Now I am going to stick in right here where we took it out. Now as you can see, it goes to a still frame. Now if I want to add a Ken Burns Effect, see this little crop emblem right there click that, and you'll come into this trim edit window. Here you'll see, you have a few options, rotate, Ken Burns.
So what we are going to do, is we are going to do the Ken Burns. I want to select Ken Burns. And you'll see now we have a little start box, which you see up here in the corner. Start I can click it and drag it and bring it down littler, and bring it and scroll it around like this right here.
Again you can flip it, if you want. And you are in, and I am going to flip it back. And then my end box is where you want it to stop. So I'll make my end box about wrap like that. My start box looks about pretty good and I'm going to say Done.
Now as you can see when the photo starts, it starts right there and it zooms out into the box we set. Okay and if you want to reverse that, grab your end and see here, we'll grab our start. Let's grab our end here like so we'll say Done.
Now it's going to start normal, and it's going to zoom in. So let me play that. And that's how you add a still frame from existing footage and do a Ken Burns Effect. And how you do that is a simple process of dragging just a photo in. The little blue box is going to tell you how much of the clip its over top off. And the little bar here tells you how long your photo is. And you can drag it to the ends and stuff and make it longer and shorter. So that's how you do it guys hope you've learned something. We'll see you next time.
