Creating a highlight reel will make you stand out as a student-athlete in the college recruiting process. College coaches use college recruiting videos to analyze a student-athlete’s athletic abilities. If you have high-quality game footage but not a highlight video yet, this article helps you make a quality skills video using a Mac computer.
How to Build a Highlight Reel on a Mac
While there is video editing software out there that can help you build a highlight reel, many of them cost money. For Mac users, iMovie, a free application, helps get the job done. This was designed with the non-technical computer user in mind and is very straightforward and easy to use.
