apple: Apple adds two new video editing features for iPhone and iPad users

iMovie is Apple’s ‘native’ app for editing videos on the iPhone, iPad and Mac devices. Apple has updated the iMovie app with new features, enabling users to create better edited videos on iPhone and iPad. The two new features — Storyboards and Magic Movie — will be available on iMovie 3.0, which is available today as a free update on the App Store for devices running iOS 15.2 or later and iPadOS 15.2 or later.

What does the Storyboards feature do?

As per Apple, Storyboards will help content creators and moviemakers learn to edit and improve their video storytelling skills with pre-made templates for popular types of videos shared on social media. For instance, there will be templates for videos like DIYs, cooking tutorials, product reviews, science experiments, and more. Storyboards will give users flexible shot lists and step-by-step guidance on which clips to capture for each video type. Instead of starting with a blank timeline, creators can choose from 20 different storyboards featuring a variety of popular video types, including cooking tutorials, Q&As, product reviews, news reports, and more.
Each storyboard has a shot list that organises clips to tell a specific narrative. Each placeholder also includes an illustrative thumbnail, along with a tip that asks a question or makes a suggestion for how to shoot that clip to make it more interesting. For added customisation, shots can be added, reordered, and deleted from a storyboard as needed. Creators can experiment by applying different video styles that include titles and transitions, as well as options for title layouts, fonts, filters, and colour palettes. Music tracks dynamically adjust to fit the length of a project, and users can refine each clip with intuitive editing tools like trim, split, clip speed, and clip volume.
Users can further share completed Storyboard videos from iMovie through Messages, Mail, and across social media platforms.

What does the Magic Movie feature do?

Magic Movie helps create custom videos — complete with titles, transitions, and music — in just a few taps. To create a Magic Movie, a user simply selects an album, or any group of photos or images from their library, and Magic Movie instantly identifies the best parts of the footage and creates the project. Creators can easily put their own spin on a Magic Movie by rearranging or deleting clips in the simplified Magic Movie shot list, or by editing the project further. Styles can be added to change up the look and feel of the entire video. Like Storyboard videos, Magic Movies can be shared from iMovie via Messages, Mail, and on social media.
