Open An Iphone Movie In Imovie

Shoot a movie with your iPhone and open it in iMovie on your Mac.

After you shoot a movie with one of the built-in cameras on your iPhone, you can watch it on the device’s 3.5-inch touch-sensitive display. Later, you might want to edit your iPhone movies into a longer movie, and add narration, music and transitions before you show them to your family and friends. You can easily transfer movies from your iPhone to your Mac, and then open them with iMovie, the free video editing application that comes pre-installed on all new Macs.
