Sharing Your iMovie Project Using Different Platforms

There are various ways to share your iMovie projects. You can share your projects with family and friends via email or even be watched on another device. I will explain a few of them below. 

  • Sending Your Video Via Email 

A completed video can be shared with others via email using the Mail app or text message using the Messages. Follow the steps below to send your videos using email. 

Step 1 

Tap the movie you want to share from the Projects browser. Tap Done in the upper-left corner of the project you’re editing.

Step 2 

After selecting Share, select Messages or Mail.

Tap Send after finishing the created message or email. You can make your movie smaller if it’s too huge to submit as is. You can choose a lesser resolution by canceling your current message or email, going back to the share page, and tapping Options.

Step 1 

Tap the movie you want to share from the Projects browser. Tap Done in the upper-left corner of the project you’re editing.

Step 2 

Select Share from the menu. Then, touch Options, and tap Done after you’ve made your selections to modify the movie’s resolution or format.

  • Web Sharing Your iMovie Video

You can save your project in the photos library and then upload it to the web. 

Step 1 

Press the project you wish to share, then tap the Share button on iMovie’s Projects browser.

Step 2 

Choose a resolution by tapping Options under the movie’s title if you wish to change the video’s resolution. An excellent resolution for sharing on the web is 1080p. Movies at lower resolutions, such as 720p HD, upload to the web more quickly.

Step 2 

To save your movie to your device’s Photos collection, select Save Video and then open the website for the service you wish to utilize. If you wish to utilize YouTube or Facebook, open them on your device and then upload your video there. Sharing your iMovie project usually follows after you have carried out other editing tasks on the project, such as fade-in.
