You're watching VisiHow. In the previous tutorial, we detached sounds and created voice-overs. This is a tutorial on how to edit or remove a Ken Burns effect in iMovie. A Ken Burns (motion) effect is the default effect in iMovie on the Mac.
- 1To begin, add a clip by clicking the plus sign in the lower-right corner of a selected clip.Instead of just playing photos, you will get a slight video motion. This will zoom in or out to a different area on the photo. The effect is somewhat random in the direction it chooses. For some photos, it may zoom out. While in other photos, it may start at the top and pan to the bottom. For the particular photo in the video, let's see a zoom effect instead of a pan effect.Advertisement
- 17When this window is open, click either "Crop to Fill" or "Fit" next to the "Style" feature above the clip preview.For this tutorial, let's choose "Fit". "Fit" makes sure that the picture fits inside the frame. The full image will be shown in the frame, but there may be some black space around the picture.
- 27When you have finished making your selection, close the window by clicking the red button in the top-left corner.From this point, the default effect will be what you will have selected. In this case, it will be "Crop to Fill".Advertisement
