Create a movie project in iMovie on iPad
Magic Movies are perfect for when you want iMovie to create your movie for you. Storyboard projects are perfect for when you want iMovie to guide you in creating a themed movie. When you know exactly how you want to organize your clips and would rather do it manually, you can create a movie project. The movie project doesn’t offer the guidance and automatic features of Magic Movies and storyboard projects, but you get finer control over editing your final movie with advanced timeline editing tools available only to movie projects.
After you create a movie project, you can browse video clips to add to it. The media browser displays all of the video clips you’ve recorded from within iMovie, as well as any video clips from your photo library.
In the iMovie app on your iPad, tap Start New Project, then tap Movie.
If you don’t see Start New Project, tap Projects to return to the Projects browser.
The Moments screen appears, showing your media organized into moments—all the photos and video clips from a particular day or event.
Touch and hold image thumbnails to preview photos at a larger size or to play video clips.
Tap the photos and video clips you want to include in your movie.
You can tap individual items or tap Select to choose an entire moment. Selected items appear with a blue checkmark icon .
Note: To view your video clips, photos, and albums, tap Media at the top of the screen.
Tap Create Movie at the bottom of the screen.
