5. Travel theme

Give your project a professional appearance with iMovie’s great themes…

Themes are a great way to enhance the look of your movie. That’s because they use pre-determined titles, music and transitions to give your work a high-quality finish.

Eight themes are included with iMovie for iOS. They’re named Modern, Bright, Travel, Playful, Neon, Simple, CNN iReport and News. Modern is the default theme, but you can swap between them by tapping on the Settings button at any time, then swiping between the themes at the top of the page.

 

1. Modern

Great for short films and product demonstrations. It comes with funky transitions that use partially transparent black squares, and positive music that works particularly well with lengthy films.

A basic theme, with no flashy intro and black fades for transitions. Catchy music, however.

A stereotypical news report animation opens the video with this theme. Blue graphics swish between clips during transitions.
