iMovie Tutorial: Edit with ease by changing project properties

Fed up with adjusting transition timings? Want to kill the Ken Burns effect? Save yourself time by making some quick alterations to the project you are about to embark on.

iMovie, like most major applications on the Mac, has a wealth of features that you can use to produce professional-looking projects.
One of the pitfalls of being such a clever application is that certain elements of the production are done without consent, in order to save you time. These automated tasks happen each time you import a video, cut down a clip or add a transition, but that’s not to say they can’t be changed if you know where to look.

Making sweeping changes to the way your workflow is processed can save you untold time and effort later on in the edit. It can help you build a smoother working process; one where you feel that all the elements you need are in place for you to just knuckle down and finish whatever masterpiece you’ve started. So, get to grips with your projects, make the settings work for you and get the process moving along much more efficiently.

Step 1: File menu
Access the File menu at the top of the interface and then click on the Project Properties option. This will roll down a new dialog box with a raft of options available.

Step 2: Take a minute
Have a look at each of the options and decide whether they can be used to increase the productivity of your project. Make the changes you want and then dismiss the dialog box.
