iMovie

Principal function(s): Audio recordingSlide presenting

Movie editing tool for Mac and iOS. Pictures can be put together to create a slideshow as well. Various effects available for transitions, music, captions, etc. Evaluation: A handy software program incorporated into Mac computers that easily allows the creation of professional-looking videos or photo slideshows. It may seem a little daunting at first for those who are acquainted with video-editing software since it offers a variety of functions and features, and it may take some time to grasp all the functions and ‘how-to’. However, it does not require any advanced IT knowledge. A good tutorial is all that is needed to get started.
