Exporting/Sharing a movie with iMovie (& iMovie HD)

Evening Fireworks

Walt Disney World, Florida

March 2008

In the Export selection box, make sure it says Movie to QuickTime Movie and pick Steaming – Medium settings in the Use selection box. Finally, Click on Save.

With your edited and finished movie in Movie ‘08:  go to Share, then Share…

Choose the Expert Settings and click on the Share button.

That brings us to the settings options.  For the best overall size to quality ratio for the web, choose Streaming – Medium.

All that’s left is to pick where you want to save the file (thin this example it’s being saved to the Desktop) and click on the Save button.

iWeb ’08

Open iWeb and create a New Page if you wish (I used the Movie template).  Open finder, and drag the exported movie from finder to your webpage in iWeb.  When you publish your website, the movie will be transferred appropriately — there is no special file copying or anything else necessry.

Continue the publishing process using iWeb (see below).
