With my new Mac computer (I have made a transition from PC), I called on my daughter. She has been a Mac user for a few years and has used iMovies and Garage Band a lot in her work - Christine teaches middle level theatre arts. She is also very tech savvy. When I spoke to her about my dilemma, she was excited to share a handout she had mode for her students on how to create an iMovie! Woo hoo! I just KNEW I could follow directions written for middle school students. How hard could it be?
Here is where you insert a laugh-track. I did follow the directions, but then I had the start of a movie trailer I couldn't complete. And time was short. So I called Christine again, and she talked me off the ledge, giving me just enough information so I could muddle through my first movie.
Hurray! And when I showed it to Daryl and saw the delight on his face, I knew all was well.
Then technology struck once again. The movie would not insert into my PowerPoint, no matter how I compressed it, or how I saved it, and the PowerPoint slides themselves were getting messed up. That was NOT good - the presentation was just a few days away!
So...I fixed the slideshow, taking out the movie, and decided that would just have to be a private showing film for the moment.
And here it is for your viewing pleasure - my first 1-minute iMovie using video clips and photos from one portion of our trip. The flying, of course!
