How to make a movie trailer

You’ve just gotta love the new iMovie 11 – It comes with built in movie trailers as themes!

It also has some much needed features like slow motion and fast forward and it looks like Apple have fixed up the audio editing.  I’m loooking forward to trying it out – it might be time to ditch iMovie HD. What have others found?

Anyway, here’s how to make a trailer:

In iMovie just go to File: New Project and pick a Movie Trailer Theme.

Go through the text boxes and fill them in. When you hit a movie placeholder box select some movie from your movie library down the bottom pane.

Fill it all in, then Preview it.

Back to your Project Library  and select Share Menu and post it straight to YouTube.
