  9. Make sure your video is saved to the cloud account.
  10. The iPad has 32 GB of internal video which should be sufficient to film all of your PACT event without having to move your files even if it does not back up to the cloud.

Downloading your movies to non-Apple devices

  1. Using the lightning - USB cable plug the iPad into any computer with enough memory to hold the videos.
  2. Turn on the iPad - most computers will automatically install the device. Older computers may not do this. Installing iTunes will help.
  3. A window will appear asking you what to do with the device.
    1. Click on the "Open Folders to view Files" choice.
    2. You may have to click through a few folders to find your videos.
  4. Once the folder opens and you have the original video click and hold the cursor on the video you wish to copy and drag it to your desktop. This will take a few to several minutes depending on the size of the file.
  5. Once on another computer you can edit it from there with iMovie or Windows Movie Maker (PC users)

NOTE: Editing your PACT Video will be covered in the PACT Tech support class during the 7th and 8th week of the course.
