iMovie Allows You to Share Your Creations in Many Ways
Once the video footage is edited, with a few taps on the iPad’s screen, you can present the movies to others on the new iPad’s Retina display, for example. Or, using Apple TV and iOS 5’s AirPlay feature, videos can be streamed from your iOS device to your high definition television set.
You can also transfer the movies to a Mac or PC for viewing and storage, or share them on YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo, or another online-based video service. Finished videos can also be emailed to others directly from the iPhone or iPad, or shared via iMessage.
To see a sampling of what’s possible using the iMovie app, visit the Apple website. What’s amazing about iMovie is all of the editing features and effects that are packed into this app, and that you can shoot, edit, and share really impressive movies from virtually anywhere.
If you opt to publish your movies on YouTube, for example, keep in mind that you can set up your published clips so they’re only accessible to specific people that you invite to see them, or you can make them public and share them with the world. However, it’s important that you set up your YouTube account and the settings for your movies correctly, or you could wind up sharing movies with the public that were only intended to be seen by family or close friends.
Using a bit of creativity, not only can you create and share your home movies, but also it’s possible to produce promotional videos for your company, products or service, for example, that can easily be embedded into a company’s website, blog, Facebook page, or Twitter feed, as part of a grass-roots marketing effort. Once videos are fully edited and produced using the iMovie app, they can also be incorporated into interactive eBooks for the iPad that are produced using the iBooks Author software on a Mac, or they can be transferred to a computer and then burned onto a DVD, for example.
The options offered by the iMovie app for sharing or distributing edited movies are extensive because the finished movies can be optimized and saved in any of several popular file formats and file sizes.
