Edit your films

Last changed: 07 August 2018

There are many editing tools for videos, depending on which device you use, and here we mention some of them.

iMovie (iOS)

iMovie is available as an app for iPad and iPhone and can be downloaded to Mac computers. The app costs 50 sek to download.
With the iMovie app you can create and edit movies directly in your iPad. The simplicity is iMovie's strenght, there is no need for extra cables, camera or other equipment.

You can either make a new recording directly in iMovie or upload a video that you already have. You drop the video clips you want to work with on a time line and then you can drag them around or crop, add text or sound.

It is also easy to use iMovie together with other apps to improve photo quality.

Here is a guide from iOS about the many functions in iMovie
