iMovie titles can be used to introduce your project and sections within it. There are several options for customization within the Titles section. Play with this function to see which works for your movie.

Step 1:
Click on the "Title" tab.

Step 2:
Choose a title from the scrolling window. The editable options will change depending on which title you choose.

Step 3:
Customize your title. Here are some questions to help you formulate what you would like your title to look like:

  • How long would you like it to appear?
  • Would you like it to be presented on a black screen or over your movie?
  • Do you want to change the font and size of the text?
  • Would you like to change the text that is being presented in your title?

Step 4:
After making all of your customization selections, click "Preview" at the top of the "Title" panel. If you are happy with your title, click on the "T" icon, screen shot, next to your selected title and drag it to the clip timeline along the bottom of the iMovie interface.

Step 5:
A red bar will appear beneath your title in the clip timeline. This indicates that the clip is still rendering. For best results, wait til the red bar disappears, or until the title has finished rendering, before working any further with your movie.
