iMovie is a software that allows you to incorporate your home videos and pictures into a movie.  It may take some time to get use to this program, but once you figure out how to use it, you’ll be making movies in no time.

Trailers are pre-made templates that easily guides you on how to make the same trailers that iMovie has, but with your own videos and photos.  You have 15 pre-made trailers to choose from:

A variety of sad, romantic, adventurous, scary, and news-like themes made to cater to your needs.  If you don’t want to be restricted by pre-made templates, use Project themes instead:

Project themes are more versatile compared to trailers.  Create your own transitions, input your own music, insert videos or pictures anytime and anywhere, and edit as much as you like.

My biggest frustration with this software is that if you work on a project for too long, iMovie will crash on you.  Luckily, projects autosave and you can come back to where you have left off after the crash.  Photos will also turn black when movie is being played after you have worked on the project for a while.  And to add to that, it would be a plus if iMovie had an option to purchase more project themes and trailers so you can differentiate your projects from other people’s projects.  Other than that, iMovie is a great software to use for making home movies.
