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. But you may have noticed that the number of iMovie themes is quite limited. So how to get more iMovie themes? Here I find some solutions for you:
- Solution 1: Get more themes from iDVD
- Solution 2: Switch to iMovie alternative - Wondershare Filmora
Solution 1: 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. Download the free trial version below.
