iMovie ‘11 Training Tutorial
Jan. 2012By Tom Caprood, The Record 
To start editing video with iMovie, you first want to create a new project. Do this by going tothe FILE menu and click NEW PROJECT. You will now see this screen:Keep the default option of “No Theme” and give your project a descriptive name (you canchange this later if you need or want to). You’ll then see an empty project pane. This is where you will drag your video clips andassemble the movie you want to produce. 
iMovie organizes your movies into events. Before you import your videos, you need to makea new event which you can label with the date and a short, descriptive title to help keep thingsorganized.
Next, you're going to import your videos from your camera or computer hard drive into iMovieby choosing IMPORT FROM CAMERA from the FILE menu. 
If you’re using a hard drive-based camera, like a FLIP, you’ll see the following screen whereyou can preview and select which videos to import, or simply import everything on the camera.
Once your videos are imported into your event, they will be visible in your event browser. Thismay take between 5 and 20 minutes, depending on the length and number of videos you areimporting. When finished, you can drag our mouse over portions of a clip (or select an entire
clip) and drag it up to your project area to add the content to your video. Keep in mind as you look for footage to include that iMove allows you to quickly scrub throughvideo by moving your mouse over the clip, saving you the time of hunting blinding throughimported shots for the segment you’re looking for. 
To help keep an eye on your sound levels as you edit, you can select the audio wave formbutton (seen on the left below) to make your audio display visually - the highest points in thewave being the loudest.  Audio is then visible below the video in your project window. To raise or lower the entire audiofile, you can adjust the height of the black levels bar within the waveform by clicking anddragging. 
Once you have a clip in your Project frame, you can right-click (or Control-click) to open amenu of editing options available. You will most likely want to split your clip in different sectionsso that you can delete unwanted parts and move others around depending on your plannedarrangement. [You can also use the keyboard shortcut COMMAND+SHIFT+S to split the clipwherever the playhead (read vertical line) is located).]
