Today, we learned how to edit videos on IMovie and produce music on GarageBand. I had forgotten much of what I learned about video editing in the past, so everything was new to me. I had a lot of fun playing around with all the different options for backgrounds, transitions, audio, and titles. It didn’t take me long to get the hang of using editing tools such as cutting the length of the video, splitting it into different sections, zooming in, and using slow-motion. I’m sure I’ll start using IMovie a lot more now to edit some of my own videos and create something that I will want to share with my friends and family. It’s also a great way for students and teachers to share content and knowledge by incorporating the use of technology skills along with creativity and fun!
GarageBand captured my attention and interest immediately as I am quite passionate about music. I was pretty familiar with the different sounds and effects that I could make as I’ve had the experience of playing a real synthesizer before. However, it was definitely a different experience playing around with the sounds on my computer, and I find it incredible to be able to create basically any sound imaginable.
