Forum Question: iMovie11 – Creating a Snazzy Introduction

I’m putting the finishing touches on my daughter’s rehearsal dinner video. I’m looking for 10-15 second attention getting intro that will show a fast moving photo collage where guests will see their photo, and pay more attention to the video. I’d like to do something, perhaps similar to the iDVD intros, but I’d like it to be more engaging and absolutely show more photos. Is there a built-in feature to iMovie, an app or some other 3rd party solution to consider? Many thanks!

    One idea is to use the slideshows from iPhoto. Or, how about a Keynote presentation — the smart builds. A cube smart build in Keynote might be what you want. Other than that, there are lots of 3rd-party slideshow apps that I see in the Mac App Store. There are some suggestions, anyway.

    Thanks Gary. You got me thinking. There appear to be a number of photo mosaic products. Any thoughts on using one of these and integrating that into the iMovie?

      Sure. That’s what I meant. Try them. This is a creative pursuit, so there are so many directions you can go and things you can try.

    Just thought I’d add my 2cents worth. If you already have Keynote you don’t need to buy anything more……..I use for just this purpose and it’s great! The build ins and outs and transitions give the developer so much power and flexibility. Nice to get those creative powers flowing

    Hi. I just bought a Macbook that has iMovie. I watched different tutorial in youtube. However, when doing a sample video to try the slow motion, the edit clip options are greyed out. Why is that? And other options in other menu as well.

      Hard to say. Perhaps it is the way you imported the video?
