iMovie Video Editing Course for Beginners on Mac OS


This iMovie course has everything you need to bring to you from a beginner to advanced level in video editing.

Have you ever wanted to create the type of videos you see on Facebook or YouTube?

You’re here because you want to learn video editing with iMovie, right?

iMovie is the ideal application for beginners, it’s very user friendly so whether you want to create an epic travel video, a birthday video, promote a product for work or even edit your own online course, then iMovie is the right way to do it.

While the word “video editing” might sound scary for many of you who have never opened up a video editing application before, but once you get started, it’s fairly intuitive. Everything from importing media to color grading, then actually exporting your videos can be learned in this course.

With this course, you don’t need to actually have ready videos for editing. Once you have enrolled in this course a link will be given to you with all the practice videos that we’re going to use during the course and more than that.


No matter what you intend to do with iMovie, I want to make sure you’re able to do that. My goal is to be your guide along the way and get you editing in iMovie as soon as possible, that’s why all the lessons in this course are short and straight to the point creating an easy learning experience.

What this course is not:

  • I will not teach you how to shoot your footage. That may be part of a different course, but this course only focuses on video editing in iMovie.
  • I will not give you ideas on what movies you should make. The creative process should come from you. I will show you all the tools and techniques you could use in iMovie and chances are these will spark ideas in your mind for you to pursue in your movie creation.
  • This course only covers iMovie for the Mac and not iMovie for iOS, even though obviously many concepts are similar. The UI is clearly different. I may add a section in the future about moving a movie from iMovie for iOS to iMovie for Mac so you could start editing on your iOS device and then continue editing on the Mac.
  • iMovie has a small functionality called App Preview which is meant for developers to create short movie app previews to be put on the App Store. Basically it only adds a few additional elements you could use in your movies. I will not cover this feature. Maybe I’ll add another section about it in the future, but I believe that if you’ve mastered this class, you should know how to use this feature as well.
