Creating Animated Travel Maps in iMovie

There are animated travel maps built right into iMovie on your Mac. You can choose a single location or a route between two locations or even more. Beyond the basics, you can use cropping, color adjustments, and filters to create a unique animated travel map for your new iMovie project.

    This is a great feature that I wasn't aware of. When mapping shorter distance (e.g. London to Paris) the dots and line are too big. Is there a way of adjusting their size?

    Alan: No, there are no settings for that.

    Thanks for the enhanced features demonstration. I did use the simple versions before and I’m glad to know how I can tailor it more.

    Thanks. I have been dreaming of having this feature in my travel videos. I will try this now.

    Darn! Every time I add the copy & paste so I can add another stop, it just extends the one I already have. There's no division.

    Sherry: Make sure you set the two locations for each section carefully like I do in the video.

    I have tried to enter GPS coordinates obtained from Apple Maps for a Custom destination but either the GPS option doesn’t work or I am entering in the wrong format. Have you tried using GPS coordinates? Thx

    Follow-on above… for instance 30.73496°N, 97.69498°W is in TX but iMovie shows it in Asia.

    John: Try "30.73496,-97.69498"

    Again, Always great. I use Final Cut. Are these options there or do I need to make movie in iMovie then export it? I would try but do not have Final Cut on this computer. Thanks

    Ken: No. This is a feature of iMovie. You can always export from iMovie and use that as a clip in FCP, yes.

    Is there a way to keep all the legs of a trip displayed? As opposed to each leg ends and another starts.
