In this instructable I will show you the basics of iMovie and try to teach you how to put together a great video edit and slide show. This can be accomplished with a lot of other software but iMovie comes with a new Mac. If you own a Mac you already have this, SCORE!
I recently purchased a new MacBook and I am really enjoying it. I have learned a lot about it in a very short time. In the process of playing with it and surfing this site I was inspired by another post to learn something new about iMovie. I had this stuck in my head and thought it would make a funny video if I remade it with Instructables images as a slide show and used the audio from the commercial. What resulted was a cool video and an instructable on how to use iMovie that I believe anyone can wrap their head around.
Another quick note: I have no prior knowledge on movie production or professional image editing. I have been using Adobe Photoshop 7 for about seven years and just recently switched to Adobe Photoshop CS. All of my knowledge is self taught and/or comes from trial and error. This was also my first "project" using iMovie so please add a few comments.
Step 1: Materials Needed
An Apple computer with iMovie - I have OS X v10.5.2 with iMovie v7.1.1
Image editing software - I use Adobe CS v8.0 but anything you are comfortable with is ok.
Music track or sound effects
