August 2004: Timing Edits in iMovie
In the August 2004 installment of "Digital Hub," I show how to use iMovie 4's new features -- direct trimming, timeline snapping, and bookmarks -- to time your edits to a soundtrack.
You can view a one-minute movie (1.5MB) that I made using these techniques.
By the way: On the latest edition of my book/DVD, I devote the entire iMovie segment of the DVD to these editing techniques. Learn more about The Macintosh iLife '04.
