Making Science Videos with Your iPad: Part 5

You may have seen a fellow scientist using the iPad to shoot video, but wondered how they were going to turn those random clips into something useful.  In this series of tutorials, I am showing how to use the iMovie app for the iPad to edit video clips and produce a movie that follows a storyline.

In this tutorial, I show how to shoot video with your iPad and insert the footage directly into iMovie as well as how to import footage you’ve taken with other devices such as a camcorder or digital camera (for best viewing, select the HD version and full-screen options (see menu bar at bottom of player window).

  1. I love your website and all the terrific information! I was wondering if you had any recommendations for an iPad and iPhone tripod mount? I look forward to watching more videos!

    • Shawn,
      Thanks for the comment. You can find tripods such as Gorillapod by Joby for iPhones here: These work quite well and are inexpensive. You can also find mounts for iPad, but I’ve not tried these out and so cannot make an informed recommendation.
