How To Export From Imovie in macOS?

  1. Open iMovie in the mac device. If you haven’t installed it make sure you install it from the Mac App Store for macOS Operating System.

  2. In the Landing screen of the iMovie, Choose to Create New where it shows the giant + icon as you see below in the screenshot.

  3. As soon as click on the Create New icon, a new pop-up appears with two options as seen in the screenshot below. One is a Movie that lets you combine videos, photos, and music to make your own movie. The other is a Trailer which is basically allowing you to add videos and effects to a template which is in Hollywood style movie trailer. You could make a video like that at the end.

  4. For the purpose of this article, I have chosen Movie which means I will have to all the work manually adding photos and videos. You could see that in the image below.

  5. Once you are happy with the edit that you have done with the photos and videos, Tap on the Share icon at the top right corner of the iMovie window as seen below.

  6. Once you click on the Share button, a popup appears with 6 different options. They are Email, Youtube, Prepare for Facebook, Vimeo, Image, and File. For the purpose of this demo, I have chosen File which means I want to export the project movie as a video file.

  7. Choosing File will open the window which lets you choose the characteristics of the final file. You could add a description, Format of the end video, Resolution, Quality & Compression ratio. I have chosen to keep it to the default. Final Cut Pro offers way more customization when it comes to exporting but for a consumer product like iMovie, these options are pretty damn neat.

  8. Click on Next once you done the change to the export file. This will open the Save As dialog box where you could enter the name of the end file and also the destination where you want it to be saved. Click Save once you have entered the name and destination.

  9. The file starts exporting immediately and you can see the progress at the top right corner near the Share button as seen in the image below.

  10. Once done you will find the mp4 version of the iMovie project in the chosen folder.

That’s how you export a video via iMovie in both iOS & macOS. iMovie is an effective app to do basic video editing in the Apple ecosystem.
