I Just started a youtube channel and got my very first MacBook Air. I have been editing with iMovie using my iPhone and iPad. I just tried to do some editing on the MacBook. I am confused. Hoping you can unconfuse me
+ A tip from my experience recording music: Check your gain volume on your microphone as it tends to distort, due to the signal being too hot. I hear it a lot on youtube videos no matter how good the content is, which is a shame. Maybe a better mic would be good too. Hope you can use it. Cheers
Hi Justin, just moved to a Mac, love learning more about video editing and getting the story line right within the edits.
My number 1 tip for editing is, just stuck in practice, make vids and working on improving work flow. Do it and you will learn in time!
I still have a lot to learn.

Could anyone help me in the situation I'm in? I'm not able to upload my hero 7 black videos in iMovie or GoPro Quik. iMovie is saying IT CANT OPEN FILES IN "MPEG-4 MOVIE" FORMAT. All I'm able to see are the pictures I've taken. The videos are black when I upload them, and can only hear the audio. I have a MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Mid 2014) it has the latest update (MacOS High Sierra). Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
I'm so grateful - thank you! For a self-confessed luddite and an overall old fart that's invariably disoriented in this digital world, you made this tutorial so easy and enjoyable. I'm half proud of myself having just edited my very fist video with the your guidance! Much appreciated!
hi I'm just wondering if you made a mistake and don't want the music you have chosen how do you delete it you can't just press delete like the videos or photos but the songs actually save on I movie itself how do you get rid of it
Thank you for this video Justin, you have inspired me to make my own YouTube channel like yours. If you have time could you have a look at it and give me some tips. I would appreciate it if you could also subscribe and like my videos
Justin, what can I do to get my iPhone, iPad ,a den Mac Pro all on the same page? I have filmed with both iPad and iPhone and some are missing from the iPhone. Until this video, I didn’t want to put them on the Mac pro. I will now so I can edit the right way.
if you have everything syncing using icloud then that will keep everything the same across all devices.. another cool app is Adobe Rush (paid though) that helps make the editing the same on iphone, ipad and computers
Wow, FINALLY, an editing video I can understand. You are such a good teacher. You are methodical, slow enough to understand and to the point. I was ready to return my new MacBook Pro. Now I understand! I guess the iPhone and iPad is not as detailed. When I try to edit on the iPad and iPhone, there are not as many choices, or rather I don’t know how to get to them. But this one, is awesome. Ty,ty,ty.
Justin, thank you this is very useful and easy to understand. I have a choir video of numerous songs in one length. I need to edit each song to create it's own identity and save each one separately . How is this done please? Have you a tutorial for this?
I’m fairly a novice and can say editing does not intimidate me. Headache for me is being able to burn edited video onto a dvd to play on DVD player. That simple yet appears to be impossible. What current software will allow me to burn video to dvd 🤔. I experimented in the past and it was a nightmare.
I love this edgy look! I was so excited that her hair, even as short as it is now, was still able to be put into the fun and trendy dutch pigtail braids! Instead of braiding to the ends, I ended them in close together pigtails at the nape of her neck. After I finished braiding, I tugged on the outsides of the braid gently to loosen them and make them a little messy and fun! Since she doesn’t have enough hair to tie around the elastics, I made sure to use elastics that matched her hair so they blend in as much as possible. You could also cover them with clips or bows! A view from the back of her Dutch pigtail braids! A great braid for short hair is a micro accent braid! My biggest tip for braiding short hair would be to add in small slices of hair rather than big ones. I did a small (micro) braid along a slightly curved deep part for anther cute and edgy look! You could also do another one next to it if you wanted a little more to the look, but I really liked how simple this one was. You can see how the part curves a little better from this view of the back. I ended the braid close to the head with an elastic that matched her hair. For our fourth style, we did a 3/4 french braid! Super simple but also super cute! You could do any type braid! It would also look cute using a Dutch braid or a fishtail braid! I loved the side view of this braid! I will for sure be doing this one next time she goes to gymnastics or swimming, whichever comes first! Our last braid is two four dutch lace braids into two loops in the back. Start off by parting the hair down the middle. On each side of the part, do a dutch lace braid, adding hair in from only the section closest to the part as you braid. Tie the braids together in the back with a small elastic and before you pull the hair all the way through to make a ponytail, leave it in a cute little loop! If the hair is a little bit longer, you could do a tiny bun. Repeat this directly under the braid you just did so you have two rows and two loops.
We will have to be coming up with lots more short hair braids in the future, so be sure to give us a follow over at our newly redesigned blog Abella’s Braids to see more as we do them!
Thanks for reading! See you again this time next month!
love these ideas! My daughter recently cut about 8 inches off her hair and is loving her shorter hair, but I’ve mostly been at a loss of what to do with it! Thanks!
Abella has been begging me for at least a year, probably closer to two years, to cut her hair. I posted a photo on Instagram with a question in the caption. “Abella has been begging me to cut her hair short, do you think I should let her do it?” Almost everyone said “YES!” So thanks to all of the good advice from my followers, we did it…and we haven’t regretted it for a second! I think she looks so cute and it really fits her personality! It’s for sure a lot harder to come up with braids but it’s pushed me to step out of my comfort zone! We wanted to show you that even if you have short hair, there are lots of cute braids you can still do!
This first braid (above) is three ladder braids. Start out with a part deep to one side. On the side with less hair, start out by doing a waterfall braid along the part. Under that one, do another waterfall braid, but incorporate the waterfall pieces from the one above it as you braid. Under that one, do a french braid. Incorporate the waterfall pieces from the second braid as you go. We braided each one to the ends and used elastics that matched her hair to tie them off.
