Daughter number 2, who celebrates her 21st birthday on Saturday, grew up with a video camera pointed at her from day one.
So, another job for the me recently (as the technology queen of the house) has been to prepare a compilation of all these videos, which we will also (on a different screen to the photo slide show mentioned in another article) during my daughter's 21st this Saturday.
As with the photo slideshows, movie making is so easy on the Mac using the built-in App, iMovie - and I love creating these for my children as a gift as they 'come of age'.
Here is a brief snippet of the start of the movie I made - very simple, with short clips from old family movies, fading between these clips, and little captions to add a bit of narration and context. (Not a very exciting movie for others, I know, but hopefully it gives you an idea!)
Would you like to learn how to do this?
If you would like to learn to use iMovie to make movies from your home videos, register you interest below in a class on this topc. If there is enough interest, we will be in touch with class date/time options.
I have been an avid user of iMovie on my Mac - you have probably seen some of the handy hint videos that I have put together with this great tool that comes built into these wonderful Apple computers.
I had seen my son quickly put together some fantastic little videos using iMovie on his iPad, but had never actually used my own mobile device to make such a video.
Well, after a visit from my wonderful sister last weekend, I decided to try out iMovie on my new iPhone 6 Plus - to collate all the short video clips of her hilarious, bubbly and talkative 2 year old daughter that I took on the Friday night. She was keeping us very well entertained, so I had a lot of video to work with, but wanted to send her father the highlights - especially those featuring her talking about him!
It was soooooo easy! I was able to choose the best bits of each video and piece all them all together, with 'fade' transitions between each clip - and it was so quick to do. I think this is going to have to be a new iTandCoffee class topic!
Check out my efforts in the YouTube video below - some bits are a bit dark due to the lack of lighting at the time, but hopefully you'll get the idea!
If you are interested in coming along for afternoon tea one day soon, where I will show how easy this is to do, just contact iTandCoffee.
