Sharing Movies from iMovie for IOS

Sharing Movies from iMovie for IOS


The last thing left to do once we’ve created a movie and we’ve performed all of our edits is to share that movie. To do that we’re going to go back into a
project list then make sure that the project that I want to share shows up in
the spotlight there and then I’ll tap on the
share icon. Here I can choose different sites
that I can upload the video directly to if I have an internet connection. So I can
upload it right to YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo or CNN’s iReport. I can
also just share the movie to my camera roll if I want to save a copy of it on my device or I can
send it to iTunes and then the next time that I connect, I will be able to sync that movie over to my computer so
let’s take a look at each of these options in more detail. (pause) You can share a finished movie from your IOS device
by tapping the share icon at the bottom of the screen,
choosing camera roll, and then this will export the movie in a
number of different sizes I’m gonna choose just the large version here but you can choose one or the HD size as
well I’m just choosing a smaller size to save
time but right now the movies exporting so
it’s gonna be my camera roll and then all I need to do is sync that camera roll over to my
computer to transfer a finished version of the movie. So now let’s switch over to iPhoto where we can import the finished movie
from our IOS device to our computer. So now with my iPad connected so I’ve plugged in the iPad with the USB cable I’ll choose my iPad on the
left side of the screen on the devices and then I scroll down and here I’m just gonna select the movie
that I just exported to my camera roll. I can then choose import selected,
because I don’t want to import the rest of the items that are on my iPad, and then I’ll choose delete photos because I don’t wanna keep
the copy in my camera roll and now on the last import here I can see my finished movie and to
preview it I can select it, press the spacebar and I can watch the movie.
And then if I press the spacebar, I’ll stop the preview so that’s how easy it is to transfer
your finished movie from your iPad or other OS device using iMovie into your computer. There’s some really good integration
between the two versions of iMovie the one on your computer and the one on
your IOS device. and one thing you can do is transfer
project from your IOS device and then finish editing it in the desktop version of iMovie on your laptop
or a desktop computer. So here I’ll select the option at the bottom and then it will take a sec and
let me know that the project will appear in the file
sharing section of iTunes. It’ll be listed as my movie which is a
title that I gave it. So, now let’s switch over to iTunes and see
how we can find this movie on there. Okay, so once
we’re in iTunes, here I’m going to select my device over on
the left side in the sidebar and then I’m gonna make sure
I am in apps and then I’ll scroll down until I get to the file sharing section and
then I’ll make sure to select iMovie on their
apps again and then iMovie documents will show me the project that I saved over from the IOS device. Here I can choose save to and and then I’ll
save this project over to my desktop and now what I can do is, I can edit this
project further in iMovie, so I can go ahead and open up iMovie on my computer and then I can choose file import iMovie for IOS project. So,
this is going to import the project that I transferred over and now all I have to do here is go to
my desktop, choose that project and then choose import and I’m going to add it to a new event called my movie. I will import that and then just a few seconds this is a short movie so it could take
longer if the movie is much longer than the one I created. I will
end up with an event called my movie and here’s my project that
I could edit further in iMovie for my computer and then
when I’m finished, I can choose share and then I would have the option to
upload it directly to YouTube or to export it as a movie in a variety
of different sizes. So here I would choose medium that’s the
one that I prefer and again I could export it to the
desktop and then I would have a finished movie so
that kinda shows you the integration between iMovie on both the mobile devices and
then the version of the program that is on
your computer. Now if you prefer, you can share your movie directly to social media sites from your IOS device and you’ll do that by tapping on the
share icon at the bottom of the screen and then here you can choose YouTube,
Facebook, Vimeo, or CNN iReport. I’m just gonna show you how to do YouTube, so I’m going to tap on YouTube, it’s gonna ask me for my login
information and once I’m signed in I need to give my video a title, a description which is
optional, I’ll choose a category and by the way
there’s an education category if you want to go with that and then you
can add tags. This will make your video easier to find when people searching for it on
YouTube. So you can add any of a number of
different tags you can choose different sizes obviously
if you choose a bigger size it’s going to take longer to upload and then you can make your video private, unlisted which means people can really search for
you need to provide them with the link or public I’ll just make this one public
and then you can also add your location but that’s optional. Once you’ve entered all the information
on this popover, you can tap on share in the upper right
hand corner and then it will take a little bit of
time but when this process is done your movie
will be on the YouTube website. So, in this video I’ve shown you a number of
different options for sharing your movies from your IOS device including one that allows
you to import the project file into the desktop version of iMovie if
you want to perform further edits.
