In the tutorials here (and ones which are planned) you'll learn that vidding on the Mac is really quite easy, the tools are easy to find (most of the time), cheap or free (unless you want to pay more money go higher end) and most importantly, fun!
The Mac has always been a very creative tool, and video editing apps like iMovie (not to mention Final Cut Pro and Express) are some of the best on the market. And (this is significant) they are only available for the Mac! So, it would seem that a Mac is an ideal machine to make fun creative things—like fan videos.
Introduction to Mac vidding: Learn more about what software tools you'll need to use, where to find them, and how much they cost (usually, not much!). An overview of the process of vidding for the Mac.
Tutorial: Your first iMovie video. Also includes information for Final Cut users. The emphasis for this tutorial is clarity and good quality. You're going to learn proper habits right from the start, so that your finished efforts will look (and sound) as good as possible. What's the point of having a great idea for a fan video if the picture is blurred, dark and murky, and the sound fuzzy? You'll never have to worry about that when you follow the advice in this tutorial. (On the last page, you'll see several examples of "newbie" fan videos made with iMovie. You might be quite amazed!)
Tutorial: Understanding Frame Dimensions (Aspect Ratio). This may not seem like an important subject to some, and granted, with Mac vidding the problems with aspect ratio are not as common. But many fan videos have problems with keeping the correct frame dimensions, so it's a major issue. This tutorial will make you aware of the different frame sizes in video, and explain to you why it's important to keep your fan video's dimensions in proportion.
