iMovies, Apple’s video editing application, has not ceased to impress and improve since its debut in 2010, though a lot of major features have been intermittent only in recent years.

The latest version (2.2.7) of the advanced video editing app, able to edit 4k footage without stuttering (and it’s free), has added a feature “The green screen support” which is so mind blowing, it blows other orthodox mobile phone video editors out of the
water.

The feature allows the user take footage recorded against a green screen (a blue screen too would do justice) and replace its background easily while keeping the subject.

The update gives the following features:

  • Transform your video with the new green screen effect that lets you remove the background on clips shot in front of a green or blue screen.
  • Adjust the green screen effect with a 4-point mask and strength slider.
  • Choose from 80 new soundtracks in genre including pop, chill, and
    sentimental
    that automatically adjust to match the length of your movie.
  • Drop in still images with transparent backgrounds to use as logos or custom graphics on
    top of your video.
  • Add photos as overlays to create picture-in-picture and split-screen effects.
  • Choose to hide the border that surrounds picture-in-picture and split-screen effects.
  • Instantly return to the edit screen of your project when switching back to iMovies from
    other applications.
  • ClassKit support lets students deliver videos assignments to teachers using the
    schoolwork app.
  • For users with videos in iMovies theater, the theater window is now available from  the ··· menu at the bottom of the projects screen.
  • Sharing to iMovies theater is no longer supported; save your movies and trailers to
    iCloud Photos to watch them on other devices including Apple TV.
  • Resolves an issue that could lead to a black viewer when previewing your video Fullscreen on an external display.
