iMovie is not only a cool way to create home movies, it’s also a great place to store all of the clips that you accumulate over years of birthday parties, nights out and other cool events.
Of course, there will be quite a few clips that you want to keep for the memories they hold, but that will never make it into one of your movie projects. By the same token, there are clips that you’ll want to earmark for future use because they show not only how skilled you are with a camcorder but also how you’ve captured a mood, feeling or event in perfect clarity.

The system in iMovie is very intuitive, with a simple button to select favourites and then a drop-down menu to toggle between seeing favourite videos and all the others. If you get into the rhythm of picking favourites on import, you’ll find it easier to wade through clips when you come to making a production.
