Exporting for EditStock With iMovie

This article explains sharing a movie from iMovie, and then uploading it to EditStock. 

1) Sharing in iMovie - Making a Quicktime File (.MOV).

EditStock needs a quicktime movie in order to give you feedback but your iMovie project isn't a quicktime movie (.MOV). Rather, from iMovie you can make quicktime movies.  This article teaches how to make quicktime movies.

First you'll need to share your project by choosing File > Share > File

2) Name Your File

Make sure you give your new .MOV file a smart name. Do not name your file - MyPorject, or RoughCut.  Instead name it something which includes your name and what you're giving us. For example John_SampleScene_v1. That is a professional naming convention.

3) Save to Computer

Finally, pick a smart place to save your file on your computer. Do that by clicking the down arrow next to the file name. You can even make a new folder to put your .MOV file into.
