iMovie (2013): Accessing keywords from previous versions of iMovie

In iMovie (2013), clips with keywords assigned to them from previous versions of iMovie appear with a blue bar along the top. This article explains how to access these keywords.

To view keywords assigned to a clip:

  1. From the menu bar, chose View > Show Skimmer Info.
  2. Mouse over the clip. A small window will appear listing the keywords that are assigned to the clip

To filter and search for clips based on keyword:

  2. Enter a keyword. The Video browser will filter to display only clips with the keyword assigned to them.  Note: You must enter your keyword exactly as it appears in the previous version of iMovie.
