I've not used iMovie before - is there an option to add a border? (perhaps in effects?) If not, you'd probably have to make one up in Photoshop or Paint, then save it as a .gif and lay it over the video. To get the right size border, take a screencap of the preview window on iMovie (I assume it has one), and then make the border around that.

If you don't have photoshop then if you took a screencap of the preview screen [Open iMovie, press the Prtsc button, paste in Paint and save], then PM me it and I'll make one up in photoshop for you. Check out if the program has an option to add a border first though.

An alternative would be render/publish your vid, send it to me and I'll add a border to it with your specifications - I use Sony Vegas which has a border adding option. :D

Jeez, i which I could use Sony Vegas someday. xD
iMovie actually has pretty much good effects but there isnt one including borders..pretty sad actually. But thanks i will try that photoshop thing then.
I guess every besides the border has to be transparent right?

You can download a free trial HERE if you want to try it out :D

I'm not sure what the layout is like on iMovie, but if you have more than one video track, the border has to go on the track above the video. There should be a track above it, even if it's a text track, so just put it there (or you might have to use an overlay option if that's how it works).

They are Clip Sites where people upload them. But most people (including me) rip them from their dvd's. Since it's not very legal i can't give you more informations here but feel free to google it or pm me. :rofl:
