Once you’re chosen your shots from the library, made the edit as tight as possible, included a soundtrack and a handful of sound effects, and added your titles, it’s time to share your work with others.
You can, of course, pass your iPad around or use the AirPlay feature to enjoy your work in your living room’s largest screen thanks to the Apple TV, but this only caters to friends and family in your immediate vicinity. What about all those that live in different towns, or countries? Or your friends on Facebook, or followers on Twitter?
As you might expect, sharing your work is an integral part of iMovie and you can access many different sites straight from your film’s Share menu. In addition to that, you can also send your project to another iOS device, and we’ll be exploring both these features here.
Time required: 20 mins
What you need:
iMovie ($5.49, App Store)
iOS 5.1 or later
Step 1: The Share Icon
Go to iMovie’s front page (the one that looks like the outside of a cinema). Swipe left and right on your projects’ posters until you find the one you wish to export. Tap on the Share icon at the bottom of the interface to reveal a menu, offering you numerous options.
Step 2: Social media sites
Step 3: To the Camera Roll
Step 4: Exporting your project
The Send Project to iTunes option is interesting as its purpose is different from all the others. Rather than exporting your film for others to enjoy, it readies the project so you can edit it on another device. Tapping on it does that, but how do you access your project in iTunes?
Step 5: Connect to a bigger computer
Step 6: Importing your project
