Get More from iMovie on your iPod and iPhone (Tutorial)

A couple of months back I got a 4th Gen iPod Touch and quickly installed the iMovie app so I could shoot, edit and upload videos all on the same device.  iOS iMovie is also compatible with the iPhone 4.

Very soon I discovered a the following problems: There's no way to add titles to photos, there's no way to flip footage the right way up and there's no way to fade to black or fade from black.

Fortunately I've found a way around these problems (though I'm still working on a couple of other's I'll talk about in a future post).  Anyway, here's the tutorial:

I shot, edited and uploaded this video entirley on my iPod Touch using the back camera, iOS iMovie, VRotate and the Youtube uploader.  On Monday I'm going to post a video tutorial about how to make iOS iMovie add fade to black, titles over photos and how to flip upside down footage.

Enjoy.
