00:00:04.735 --> 00:00:07.71
Sometimes is hard to hold the camera steady when shooting

5
00:00:07.730 --> 00:00:11.10
and at the end up the video is too shaky to watch.

6
00:00:11.118 --> 00:00:13.37
iMovie can help fix that.

00:00:13.393 --> 00:00:15.84

or to a single clipt at a time.

11
00:00:23.840 --> 00:00:25.86

12
00:00:25.883 --> 00:00:28.51

13
00:00:29.53 --> 00:00:30.51

22
00:00:48.59 --> 00:00:50.80

28
00:01:02.330 --> 00:01:04.03
