Introduction: What is Undoing?
Undoing is a feature on Apple’s video editing software, “iMovie Mac”, that allows users to reverse the changes made in the previous scene and go back to that version. This is particularly useful for when you decide you wanted to change something at the end of your project. Another use is when you accidentally delete your scene and want to go back to a previous version. Apple even made a whole page on their website dedicated to undoing changes.
##The Do’s and Don’ts of Undoing
There are many places you can undo changes on iMovie: in the timeline, transitions, titles, and audio adjustment. Keep in mind that you cannot undo effects to your imported video clips, such as changing its color or saturation. Undoing is very simple to do.
1. To undo in the timeline, move your cursor over the scene you want to go back to and click on it. This will bring you back to that scene. The same action can be done with audio clips, transitions that were used between two scenes or titles. Simply click on the title or transition you wish to revert and it will revert back to its previous state.
Undo with One Click on iMovie
To undo a cut, click on the clip in red that is next to the clip you want to move and then drag it on top of the one you want to remove. Sometimes, it is easier for your computer to move a whole bunch of clips at once instead of moving single clips one at a time. To do this, just hold down Shift key on your keyboard and select all clips that you want to move. Then just drag and drop on another position.

This is a nice article to use, it has the instructions you need and the tips in the intro, “you can undo any bad editing you have done by clicking on the small red segment of film next to your unwanted clip and dragging it onto another spot” (ibid.). This is good as it makes it easy to understand and less confusing.
Undo Multiple Cuts in iMovie in a Row
Once you are satisfied with the changes you have made in iMovie, save your video project as a new file. This saves all your clips and all the edits that you have done so far. Then, to undo multiple cuts in a row, restart iMovie again, open the project and choose Undo Edits. This feature can be found at the bottom of your video project. This feature allows you to select the level of your undo. You can choose from Undo All Edits, Undo One Edit, Undo Multiple Edits or Cancel.
Tap the one you want to try.
You can choose to undo all editing, one edit or multiple edits using this tool. Once you have selected the level of undo you want, tap Undo and your video project will revert to whatever state it was in before your most recent editing action.
