iMovie Themes: How to Get More iMovie Themes (Updated 2017)

One nice feature of iMovie is that it provides some built-in themes to make your video appear more professional and vibrant while creating a unique appearance that will have broad appeal. This means that you can use the iMovie themes for different videos ranging from family gatherings to sporting events to those that fit your own unique vision.

Solution 2: Get more themes from iDVD

As far as I can see, no additional themes for iMovie are available at the moment. But if you have used iDVD, you certainly have found an array of menu themes there. Actually, you can add these themes to iMovie. Here is a tutorial:

1. Find and customize the iDVD themes you like

After launching iDVD, choose your favorite menu theme. Then customize it in whatever way you like. You can add your own photos or videos, delete or replace any the titles and change background. After that, press the play button to preview your work in real time.

2. Save the edited theme

If you're satisfied with the result, select File > Save as VIDO_TS folder. Then an error message will pop up because you haven't added any video to the project (you only try to export the menu theme). To shut it up, choose the "Open DVD Map" option. In the pop up window, drag any video file to "Drag content here to automatically play when the disc is inserted" area - it doesn't matter what video it is. After that, name the theme and save it to any folder you prefer. When it is done, close iDVD.

3. Convert the theme to be added in iMovie

Open the VIDO_TS folder. Then you can use Video Converter for Mac to convert the .VOB file to iMovie compatible format. After that, you can integrate it into your iMovie project.

Product-related questions? Speak directly to our Support Team >>

Not only is this topic so misleading, it is also a lie. I was trying to use their software as a result of this article. I could not do themes. I asked Wondershare's support directly: "Is it possible to use Themes in the Mac version as an alternative to iMoive?" Wondershare answered, "Sorry to tell you that there is no Easy Mode in Mac version." This article claims their software's Easy Mode capabilities are an alternative to the exclusively MacOS software iMovie. The Mac version of their product, which is being slyly advertised here, does NOT offer themes at all. This capability simply does not exist in Filmora for the Mac despite what this article is specifically trying to make you believe. I spent valuable time evaluating Wondershare's product, before I learned that this blog is well SEOed, but completely misleading.
kinda tell you something about their product huh?
This topic is so misleading. It should say alternative to imovie trailers rather How to Get More iMovie Themes.
