Wondering how to edit videos for YouTube and how to edit videos fast? In this iMovie tutorial, you'll learn how to make the most out of your video marketing, social media marketing, online business and video editing efforts. So let's get right into this tutorial on how to edit videos faster, where you'll learn all about the new iMovie update, including iMovie trailer, ken burns effect green screen iMovie, iMovie transitions and voiceover on iMovie.



I personally use iMovie to edit videos for YouTube fast, since it has all the features I need and is included for free in all Mac computers. Once you've opened up iMovie, click on 'create new' on the top, left-hand side, and then on 'movie'.


If you have more than one iMovie library, select which library you would like to create this project in, in my case, iMovie library, and then click on 'ok'. To start editing videos for YouTube, we first need to import the footage we recorded.


For more details on how to record videos, make sure to watch my previous video on 'how to record your screen and yourself at the same time'. I'll leave the link to it in the description box below.


To import your recorded footage, click on the downward pointing arrow right above where it says 'import media', locate the file or files you wish to import from your documents, and then click on 'import selected' on the bottom, right-hand side. Repeat this process until you've imported all the files you wish to edit.


Using a teleprompter to record my YouTube video intros and outros is one of the ways in which I'm able to edit videos fast since I make less mistakes and record those YouTube video intros and outros in half the time. I'll leave the link to the best teleprompter for YouTube videos in the description box below.


Rather than editing videos for YouTube using iMovie in chronological order, I usually edit my YouTube video intros and outros first since I add more animations and elements to those than to the meat of my video. To edit the YouTube video intro and outro, I'll drag-and-drop that file into my timeline.


With that entire file selected, I'll click on the 'noise reduction and equalizer' icon from the panel up top, tick this 'reduce background noise' box, and increase the percentage to 100%. Since the footage's volume is also a bit low, I'll click and drag on this volume adjuster in iMovie to increase the video's volume to 200%.


Since I recorded this footage at the end of the day, it's a bit dark, so I'll click on the 'color balance' icon from the panel up top, and then on 'auto' to make it a bit brighter. Additionally, I'm going to go ahead and increase the timeline's length to this middle setting to make it easier for me to locate pauses.


Talking about pauses, let's go ahead and delete those in iMovie from the YouTube video's intro and outro. To delete those, place your cursor right before or after you want to delete a section, right-click, and then click on split clip or just click on command B on your keyboard.


Make sure that that section is selected, and click on ‘delete’ on your keyboard. Repeat this same process until you've trimmed all of the applicable sections in your YouTube intro and outro.


Now let's add animations and elements to this YouTube video's intro and outro in iMovie. The first one I'll add is an image with my social media handles along with a bell chime to my YouTube intro.


Rather than downloading and adding that animation from scratch every time I edit a video in iMovie, I head back to my iMovie library's projects, name this current file we're working on, click on the previous video I edited in iMovie, copy the specific animation I want to add to my current video, head back to my iMovie library's projects, click on the current video I'm editing, and paste the animation in the location of my choice.


For more details on 'how to animate graphics in iMovie', make sure to watch my video on that topic. I'll leave the link to it in the description box below.


The same goes for the animations and elements I want to add to my YouTube video's outro in iMovie. I head back to my iMovie library's projects, click on the previous video I edited in iMovie, copy the specific animation I want to add to my current video, head back to my iMovie library's projects, click on the current video I'm editing, and paste the animation in the location of my choice.


I then adjust the location of those animations to make sure that they are applied at the specific moment I'm mentioning something, such as referring to a specific playlist, to a freebie, to subscribe, and to my following video.


The subscribe button graphic is actually on a green screen, so to make it work that way you'll need to select it, click on the 'video overlay settings' icon from the panel up top, click on the dropdown menu on the left, and select 'green / blue screen'. This way, only the animation will appear, rather than that and the background.


For more details on how to create a subscribe animation, make sure to watch my video on 'How To Make An Animated Subscribe Button For Your YouTube Channel For Free'. I'll leave the link to it in the description box below.


When talking about my following video, since this is an element specific to this current video, rather than copying the graphic I used in the previous video I edited in iMovie, I'll drag-and-drop the actual graphic I need to use.


For more details on how to create graphics like those, make sure to watch my video on 'how to make graphics for your YouTube videos with Canva'. I'll leave the link to it in the description box below.


I'll also click on that graphic, click on the 'cropping' icon from the panel up top, change the style from, ken burns to fit, click on the 'video overlay settings' icon from the panel up top, click on the dropdown menu on the left, select picture in picture, change the number of seconds to 0, resize and relocate the graphic.


The last animation and element I'll be adding to this current video's YouTube outro in iMovie is the end screen. To do that, just as before, I'll head back to my iMovie library's projects, click on the previous video I edited in iMovie, copy the specific animation I want to add to my current video, head back to my iMovie library's projects, click on the current video I'm editing, and paste the animation in the location of my choice.


For more details on how to create an end screen for YouTube videos, make sure to watch my video on 'How To Create A YouTube End Screen Template + Add End Screens To YouTube Videos'. I'll leave the link to it in the description box below.


I'll also drag-and-drop the portion of the video I want to appear during the end screen above the end screen template, click on the 'video overlay settings' icon from the panel up top, click on the dropdown menu on the left, select picture in picture, change the number of seconds to 0, resize and relocate the graphic. We'll be adding the remainder of the end screen elements directly on YouTube once we upload the video, which I'll actually be showing you how to do in my next video, so stay tuned for that.


We've now added all of the animations and elements to our YouTube video's intro and outro in iMovie. Make sure to play through the entirety of that intro and outro to make sure that all the unnecessary pauses are removed and that all of the animations and elements you added are in fact in the correct positions.


If you want to save time even more time so that you can edit videos fast, and get a number of these animation and element templates for yourself, make sure to check out my Online Business Templates Vault which comes with 50 done-for-you Canva templates which will help you save 90% of the time you're currently spending on designing new graphics and create all the graphics you need for your online business in just a few clicks. I'll leave the link to it in the description box below.


Now that we've edited this YouTube video's intro and outro in iMovie, it's time to edit the meat of the video. Drag-and-drop that part of the video footage so that it's between the YouTube video's intro and outro.


Since we scripted this video beforehand, for more details on how to do that, make sure to watch my video on 'how to write a script for a YouTube video', I'll leave the link to it in the description box below, not many mistakes were made, so this helps to edit videos fast. All we have to do is remove unnecessary pauses and add any additional animations and elements. I'm going to go ahead and fastforward myself as I do that.


Once you're done using iMovie to edit videos for YouTube, and wish to export this video file to then upload to YouTube, click on 'file' from the menu up top, on 'share', and then on 'file'. Using the video script document you created as a guide, copy and paste the YouTube video's title, description and tags into the appropriate sections.


Set the other settings so that they're the way you wish, including the format (video and audio or audio only - I'll select video and audio), resolution (540 pixels, 720 pixels or 1080 pixels - I'll select 720 pixels), quality (low, medium, high, best or custom - I'll select high), and compress (faster or better quality - I'll select better quality), and then click on 'next' on the bottom, right-hand side.


Choose the location on your computer where you wish to save your edited video, and then click on 'save' on the bottom, right-hand side. Depending on the settings you selected, it may take a while for this edited video to save.


A circular icon will appear on the top, right-hand side showing you the progress of the saving of this edited video. Once the process has completed, and this video has been edited for YouTube, a notification will appear on the top, right-hand side saying that ''.
