A Single Video Library

By collecting all your video from every source into iMovie, you create a single library of
all your video—a

video library

. In the library, simply select the name of any Event that

you’ve recorded and view its contents; it’s as easy as opening a book and displaying its
pages. Group together all the video from a single event—your last vacation, for
example—even if it comes from different sources and is recorded in different video
formats. Now you can access it all with a single click.

projects you’ve created.
