How to Share Your Movie from a MacBook

Your movie is complete, and iMovie has saved it automatically to your MacBook drive. Now you’re wondering where to go from here. Select your movie in the Event/Project Library pane, and click Share on the toolbar at the top of the window. iMovie can unleash your movie on your unsuspecting family and friends (and even the entire world) in a number of ways:

  • iTunes: Send your movie to your iTunes Library as a movie.

  • Theater: Add your movie to the iMovie Theater on your MacBook.

  • YouTube/Facebook/Vimeo/CNN iReport: Why, certainly you can send your iMovie directly to any of these websites! Can it get any more convenient than that?

  • File: Create a copy of your movie on your hard drive in one of four resolutions (from Standard Definition to High Definition).

  • Email: Send your movie as an e-mail message attachment.

When you choose a sharing option, iMovie displays the video quality for the option and makes automatic changes to the movie attributes. (For example, choosing Email reduces the finished movie as far as possible in file size.)

If you’re worried about permanently reducing the quality of your project by sharing it in a smaller size, fear not! When you choose a sharing option to export your movie, your original project remains on your hard drive, unchanged, so that you can share a better-quality version at any time in the future.
