I've got to say I really like the content you're producing and it's helped me tremendously on figuring all this stuff out. Doesn't hurt to see the surf shot in the background either.
yep, Teahupoo for sure!
Mark Darfler (11 months ago)
oh I misread your reply. I thought you meant the photo was captured by him. Did I get to spot right?
The surfer is Mark Visser 👍
Mark Darfler (11 months ago)
Looks like macking day at Teahupo'o...maybe Owen Wright (surfer)...
Thanks Mark! Yeah they're great surf shots of a good friend of mine, Mark Visser 😉

Is basic iMac 4k, i5, 8g ram, 1tb fusion drive good enough for me to video edit with iMac? I’m currently using iPhone XR 258gb.
It should be able to get the job done 👍

not possible too old
Your video content really helps me as a beginner. I will definitely save this video of yours in case I forget something when I start editing my very first vlog video. I do have a question for you though, where do you get your audio? I see that you imported your own audio that goes along with your video. I would like some ideas because I like having a freedom of picking and choosing my own background music/audio. Keep up the good work and thank you once again.
So awesome to hear it, thanks! We typically get music from Artlist or Epidemic sound

You’ve earned yourself a subscriber, Justin! This video is exactly what I’ve been looking for. If ever you’ll need a kidney, I have two 😁😉
No problem Wayne! Thanks!

Justin I’m curious — would a Magic Mouse make navigating easier than the trackpad?
A mouse can make it easier to edit but it's up to your preference.

Namaste Justin!  A great teacher inspires you to be the best version of yourselves. And though this is the FIRST time I've come across your videos; I can say this is true about you. For last many years I was avoiding learning to "edit videos" and as a result I was avoiding the powerful video marketing & trainings. But today, THANKS TO YOU, within 2 hours I not only learnt how to edit video on my Mac, but also actually implemented what I learnt from you & voila! Published my first 'edited video' as well :) http://bit.ly/ruu1s I'm so grateful for souls like you who are out there adding amazing value to their followers. God Bless You, Justin! Power to you! ~Rupa Patil Bangalore, India
This means a lot Rupa. Namaste! 🙏And congratulations on taking the first step and editing your first video!

Is there a way to add music for only pictures... Example: on Windows movie maker I can add a picture and put a video after it. Say I add more pictures after. If I want to add music only to the pictures I can. I start the music at 0:00 say music ends at 43 seconds because the picture When I go to the next picture I can start it at 44 seconds... My thing is can that happen with iMovie?

+ 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. Thanks Justin Marty Ware (Australia)
Thanks Marty! totally agree, as with anything to truely master it you actually need to do it ;)

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!
