Hello,

I never edited video before and know nothing about it. The other day I took a video of a friend and decided now would be a good time to learn a little about iMovie.

So, I have this 230mb video that I would like to add a simple title and compress into a smaller size for the web. Am I wrong or does iMovie not allow me to do this without .mac? Do I need to purchase Quicktime Pro for this? Any freeware apps out there?

Thanks,

-Chris

iMovie will do this and does not require .mac nor Quicktime Pro.

iMovie will do everything that you need. Just play with it, you will figure it out in no time.

Thanks a lot! Sometimes you need reassurance the options are there. I should have searched more :-D

I just did the same thing. Since no one else spelled it out, click on share at the top and chose your format. Then select where your going to be putting it (so like for youtube.com you'd select Web). Hope this helps.
