Webcam Settings and iMovie
Several users asked me about iMovie support. iMovie does not support external USB UVC camera by default, I wrote a small utility for Webcam Settings users to enable that.
Webcam Settings iMovie Enabler (WSiE)
- Mac OS X 10.6
- Mactaris Webcam Settings
- Apple iMovie '11 (version 9.0)
- USB UVC webcam
The trick to make iMovie '11 recording 16:9 widescreen HD format - use QuickTime Player to help switch between 4:3 and 16:9!
QuickTime Player allows you to choose 3 levels of recording quality.
Medium Quality, QuickTime Player sets Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920 to 4:3 at 640x480 resolution.
High Quality, QuickTime Player sets C920 to 16:9 at 1280x720 resolution.
Maximum Quality, QuickTime Player sets C920 to 16:9 at 1920x1080 resolution.
While switching different recording quality in QuickTime Player, you will notice resolution is switched in iMovie's video import window as well. This way you can control iMovie's recording resolution.
