How to Set Up a Video Blog : Using iMovie for Video Blogs: Part 2

Uploaded by expertvillage on 17.01.2008

Alright, continuing with our iMovie quick demonstration and believe me this is quick
I'm just showing you some quick basics, I’m sure there's some other things on the internet
for editing. But it's just to show and help you along with video blogging. I dragged the
clip down into the timeline here, as you can see. And iMovie puts a little move on everything
there, which is nice. Ok now, if I want to export this video, I will go up to edit, excuse
me file, export and this menu pops up here. Now in the old days, which is two years ago,
we used to use expert settings and basically change the compression ourselves and do all
these fun things. But things have changed and as you can see, this would be full screen
like television full screen 720 x 480, 640 x 480. Tells you the compression and your
audio settings which is decent quality which we won't mess right now. But for video blogging,
the best thing to do is use the
iPod setting. If you click the iPod it's already set up for you. It's a smaller window, it’s
320 x 240, 30 frames a second. It's a small file but it's already set up for you so you
won't have to do anything. It'll compress your movie out and the next step once this
is compressed and exported onto your desktop, will be to upload it to a host site which
will be in the next video.
