3 Tips for video editing in iMovie for iPad 2

iMovie for iPad 2 has been available in the App Store. Unlike the first iPad, you can edit short films with the iPad 2. this is a good news to iMovie and iPad fans. This fun, fast, feature-rich app is designed especially for Multi-Touch. Editing by touch involves some gestures. You must be frustrated in the whole editing process if you don’t know these Multi-Touch gestures.
So the following listed 3 tips on how to edit video with the imovie for iPad 2.

Tip 1: Split Up
Selecting part of the clip you need from the browser is at best a rough guess, and you’ll then have to trim your footage further once it’s in your project’s timeline. The most obvious way to do this is by selecting the clip and dragging one of the yellow handles that appear on either side of it. Unfortunately, this isn’t an exact process and it’s all too easy to overshoot and accidentally remove the part you really wanted. Thankfully, there’s a much more precise method: drag your clip left or right until the playhead is exactly where you want to cut your clip. Next, tap on the clip to select it then swipe your finger down over the playhead: your clip is cut at that exact location and you can now discard the unwanted portion.

Tip 2: Clip Rotation
If you’re planning on shooting with your iPad 2, you may get frustrated by the fact that unlike your camera on the iPhone or iPod touch, the controls insist on being at the bottom of the screen. This means that when you’re holding it in landscape, the record button is nowhere near any of your fingers. To get around this, you could hold it in portrait, hit the record button and turn it ninety degrees to shoot your scene, but this creates another problem: just like the other iOS devices, the iPad 2 uses its accelerometer to determine your shot’s orientation, but this takes place only as you tap on the record button. This means that if you used this method, all your shots would be recorded in the wrong orientation. Thankfully, there’s a solution: add the clip to your project and move the playhead over it. Once there, place two fingers over the main preview section (top right of the interface) and do a rotate motion with them: your clip will rotate ninety degrees in the direction your fingers were moving.

Tip 3: Jump and Zoom
The timeline is where you build your edit. Place two fingers on it and move them away from each other to zoom into it, and bring them closer together to zoom out so you can see more of your project in one go. Most of the time however, you’ll want to be fairly zoomed in so you can do precision work which is where swiping left or right to get to the start or end of your film can get frustrating, especially if you’re working on a long project. There’s a quick way around this though: tap and hold anywhere, on either end of the timeline. After a second, you’ll be moved to the start or end of your project – depending on which side of the screen your finger was on.

Now you can shot a video and have a try. It is notable that swf files cannot be imported to iMovie directly. When find a more attractive swf video, you could convert swf to mov and import the mov video to iMovie for editing. Also you can convert swf to flv and upload these swf files to youtube.
