iMovie 3.0 loaded with another two big features to make zero-effort movies


Perhaps your wasted films can be saved via iMovie’s Magic Movie feature?

You may not have remembered that iMovie 3.0 was even installed on your phone. It’s also worth noting that the theme of this update focuses on the idea of not worrying too much about what you can do with all of your films.

With today’s release of iMovie 3.0 for iOS devices, two new features are designed to remind you of all the things you can do with your films. “That seems like a lot of effort.” That’s what I think every time I think of editing my own video.


iMovie 3.0, on the other hand, aims to alleviate as much of that burden as possible.

Magic Movie in iMovie 3.0 caters to the most lazy among us.

I have almost 4,100 videos in my iCloud Photos Library, according to my Photos app. Is there anything I’ve done with them? Unless I upload them to my own YouTube channel or distribute them as-is as GIFs, these films are merely taking up space on my iCloud account.

iMovie’s new Magic Movie feature may be the answer. Open iMovie, choose Magic Movie from the menu, then pick films from your computer’s collection to include in your film. To begin editing, iMovie analyses your film to determine which segments are the strongest, then compiles them into a new project.


Titles, transitions, and music will be added to your video by iMovie. You may utilise music you’ve bought, Apple’s own soundtracks, or audio imported from Garage Band as the source for the aforementioned audio. When it detects that individuals are chatting in your videos, it even automatically balances the soundtrack. Then then, you can do anything you want with it.

If you’re looking for a certain appearance for your films, Magic Movie has 20 different “styles” (think templates) to choose from. Using Magic Movie, you have full control over the final product, including the ability to re-edit clips (including clipping them if necessary) and alter transitions and other elements.

In the Storyboards of iMovie 3.0, you’ll find a mini-film school in action.

Aspiring filmmakers (you included) may find the other key iMovie 3.0 addition more important. Using Storyboards as a starting point, you can create whatever kind of video you want, from instructive DIY pieces to gaming tutorials to online Q&As.

You have the option to either import an existing clip or record a new video right there on your iPhone or iPad for each step in that shot list. Auto-tuned soundtracks are available in Storyboard projects, and they adapt to the duration of the photos you’re using.

You may utilise placeholder clips when you share your Storyboard project with another creative, as filmmaking is often a team endeavour. You don’t have to worry about losing your revisions if you make changes to the style of your storyboard as you go.

Keep a watch out for these new features in iMovie once it’s been updated, which should be today.
