    Hi there

    I need to be able to go right to sections of my imovie clips quickly, and a date/time stamp is usually the best way to do this but I can't seem to find a way to do this on the iPad app...

    Anyone else know how I can do this or an alternative way of finding the sections I need in a hurry? Thanks

    Are you meaning clips already added to the timeline?

    One thing to remember is that iMovie and apps like Pinnacle are not fully featured video editing tools. They are very basic. If you want advanced features, you may have to edit on a PC or Mac.

    Thanks. Yeah, we are using the iPad camera to record video and then imovie for basic editing and trimming the clips for presentation purposes. What would be really useful would be a time marker as otherwise you have to scroll through an hour of tape to find the bit you need, not something I would consider an advanced function...

    Well, iMovie on the iPad isn't really advanced. It's pretty basic, actually, with some gee wiz so that you can make simple stuff look pretty good.

    I understand that Pinnacle Studio offers more advanced features, though I've got no idea if it offers what you want.


    Though I don't know how well it would work for you, another option is to pre-trim you clips in the Photos app. The timeline tools seem pretty fast and adaptive to me, but I only have short videos to play with; so YMMV.

    Thanks for the suggestions. Will check out Pinnacle and also your other suggestion. :)

    No problem. Let us know how it works for you, or if you find a better solution. Especially the second.
