Exporting from Apple iMovie

on Monday, February 4, 2008

Apple iMovie exports movies in QuickTime format, or you can export directly to your camcorder’s videotape or Apple iDVD. To export your project in iMovie, follow these steps:
  1. Open the project you want to export (such as the Chapter 1 project).
  2. Choose File➪Export. The iMovie Export dialog box appears.
  3. Choose how you want to export your movie from the Export menu. For now, I recommend that you choose To QuickTime.
  4. Choose a Format, such as Web.
  5. Click Export.
  6. Give a name for your movie file in the Save As box. Make a note of the folder in which you are saving the movie. Choose a different folder if you wish. If you remove the .mov filename extension, Windows users (you probably know a few) will have a hard time viewing your movie.
  7. Click Save.
iMovie exports your movie. The export process may take a few minutes, depending on how long your movie is.
