IMovie 11 :: Can't Move Background Music
I position my mouse pointer over the background music, but the pointer does not turn into a hand so I can't move the music and pin it to start at a new track (this only happens with the background music track, I can move everything else just fine)

MacBook Aluminum :: Creating Video With Music And Picture Background - Use Imovie?
I am wanting to put some of my music on youtube and am wanting to make just a simple video- with the song playing in the background- and just some sort of nature picture, or only a few going in the background. I'm thinking I should use iMovie, but I haven't had a whole lot of luck figuring it out this morning

IMovie 11 :: How To Change Background Color Under Still Image
I have placed a still image into my movie, but I can't figure out how to change the background color under the image to the same background as the rest of the movie. The image does not bleed off the screen so when it appears I can see the black background behind it.

Applications :: Won't Work With IMovie 09 Titles / Showing Gray Background
My iMovie title preview pane now shows a gray background, rather than the standard black one (see attached screencap). When I add a title to a project, the background around the text is black, rather than transparent.

IWeb 09 :: How To Play Background Music On My Webpage
I wanted my webpage to play background music with visitor option to turn off, but don't know how to do this... If I use a music widget, it would only give me a box to push play for music instead of having an option to background play. Is this possible?

OS X :: Removal Of Irritating Continuous Music In The Audio Background?
I really hope somebody can help me with this. I've had an iMac for several months now. Before that I had a PC. Very soon after I bought it I started to get pounding rock music in the background whenever I tried to listen to anything. It's loud enough to overwhelm whatever it is I'm trying to hear. It isn't going all the time, but something seems to start it, and then it goes for days. I must have downloaded it accidentally when I was blundering around in the first month or os. If it was a PC I'd be able to find it, but Mac is still a mystery to me. I seem to remember that I downloaded something to do with a waterfall, "Dakota Falls" perhaps. The video was a waterfall which sat on the desktop. It looked quite pretty, but when I got rid of it the music wouldn't go away. So right now i can't listen t anything on my new iMac, and obviously I can't watch movie's or anything. It's really frustrating. The OS is Leopard. Also can anyone suggest a decent book on Mac that isn't too superficial. I'm not totally certain of the connection between the waterfall video and the pounding music, but they seemed to occur.

OS X :: White Macbook Plays Faint Music In The Background?
I've been a mac user for about 5 years and have worked with them pretty extensively so i'm not a newbie, but I have been having the craziest issue i've ever come across on a mac start about a week ago with my very own and here it is:

Like it says above I'm using a 2.4GHz macbook with 2Gb of RAM bought in 2007. Starting about 2 weeks ago, I find that when i'm using speakers or headphones (ie: NOT the in-built speakers) that there is faint techno music playing the background. I do like techno music but it's no song that I recognize from my library, and it seems to be about a 10 second loop. It was first one song, then i restarted my computer and it was ok for about a week and now it's back with a DIFFERENT loop (still electronic?) Has anyone ever come across anything like this before? It has nothing to do with the volume of the speakers/headphones. They still go loud and I can still hear what i'm actually watching/listening to just fine, but then there's this techno off in the distance. OR if i'm not listening/watching anything and turn the volume up all the way on either the speakers or headphones i'm able to hear the music relatively clearly but it still sounds muddled and far off. Any advice would be awesome.

Mac Safari :: Not Displaying Certain Icons And Background Music While Viewing
I'm new to Mac OS. I tried to view a website I used to visit but the 27" iMac wouldn't display certain icons and the background music when Windows 7 could.

I recalled when I was in the Windows 7, the internet Explore brought down a small yellow bar from the top page asking me whether I'd like to install the ActiveX so that the site can play back the backgound music, java script and so on.

I downloaded and tried the Google's Crome and the Firefox browsers but they were the same as the Safari.

Final Cut Pro :: Project Silent - Added Background Music Not Playing
I have a project I've been working on, and of course, it's due tomorrow. I wrote some background music to go with my video, and when I went to insert the first new audio clip, FCP refused to play any audio. The whole project was now silent. I tested the clips independently. iTunes played them fine, they played fine on their own, and even iMovie had no problem. Even the video clips that I've played hundreds of times play fine everywhere but in Final Cut. I restarted, re-installed, and still nothing. I deleted the clips from the project, but no good. I loaded another project, but now it's silent as well. Now for the really weird part: when I messed with the audio-device settings in Final Cut, the "Viewer" would intermttently play a given clip's audio - once. Then nothing. "Canvas" won't play audio at all, and even the meters are dead. I was up all night trying to get this to work, but my dead-line is drawing nigh.

Applications :: IDVD Menu - Soft Frame Theme - Adding Background Music
I have two questions/issues with iDVD. I'm a bit of a beginner when it comes to iDVD but I have checked all over the internet for the answers.

First I am using the soft frame theme and I am using all three drop zones with video filling them. When I play back the dvd in the dvd preview the video plays very choppy. It is almost frame by frame. The effects of the menu are also slow (in fact the whole preview of the dvd seems to be slow).

My second problem is that when adding background music the dvd takes the whole length of the song to loop, and in the short time is takes someone to choose a button the first drop zone is still looping.

I dragged and dropped the audio file into the menu and it does play only I want to lower down the volume to align it with the rest of the content.Is there a way to adjust the volume or should I make a new audio file with adjusted volume?

Applications :: Delete A Transition In IMovie HD?
I've created an iMovie that's full of transitions, effects, and titles. Now I have a problem that I found a typo in one of the titles, and I want to go back and change it. One problem, it's in a clip that has a transition, and trying to delete the transition crashed iMovie. (A nice generic 'The application iMovieHD quit unexpectedly.') This is with iMovie 5.0.2 on OS X 10.4.3, on two separate computers. (The two in my .sig)

Short description: So, to start from the beginning, I have a 'source' clip. I then added a title to this clip (Music Video style.) Then I used the 'slow' function to slow the clip to 1/3 normal speed. Finally, I transitioned from this clip to the next clip with a 1 second-long dissolve. (The next clip has the same type of title and slow done to it, only with different text.)

Excrutiatingly long description: This clip has no transition leading in (although there is a clip before it,) and the clip following has no transition leading out. (So these two clips could be considered to be a single group that could theoretically be taken separately from the rest of the movie.) Trying to remove a similar transition from similar clips in the movie also fails. (The movie consists of 20 clips from DV, each of the 20 with the same type of title, each with the same 1/3 slowdown, paired up with a dissolve transition between the pairs. The clips are in groups of four, with a black intro text at the beginning of each group, a fade from black into the first clip, followed by two transitioned clips, two more transitioned clips, a third set of transitioned clips, and a clip that fades to black, then a 'postscript' text. Then the cycle starts again, five groups like this in a row.

IDVD (iLife 09/11) :: Music From IMovie Not Playing When Imported?
I created a slideshow with photos and a video in iMovie. I added a music track. It looks/sounds good.

Software prompted me to do a 'Share' for 'Media Browser' so that I can add it to an iDVD project. But when I add the movie to my iDVD project and play it, there is no music. I can drop music onto the Menu portion of the iDVD project but not the movie that I imported. It won't let me. So first, why didn't the audio save with my original iMovie?

I just upgraded to Snow Leopard.. Just so I could get the iLife upgrade.. after two weeks of anticipation... I finally get iLife installed.. I open iMovie and it does all of its importing.. and now ALL my movie clips do not play iTunes music. They will play if you set them as a background music.. but if you try to line them up with a specific clip.. all you get is silence../Users/giantrob1/Desktop/Screen shot 2010-12-02 at 1.50.40 AM.png

IMovie 11 :: Royalty-free Music Software Evaluation?
A frequent problem I deal with is finding good royalty free music for my iMovie videos. There are several sites that provide such music, either free or for a fee. But it takes considerable time to find a suitable piece, and then it is rarely the right length so you end up repeating it or trimming it.

I am currently using a trial copy of Abaltat Muse, which is a software product that generates music by analyzing the colors in a QuickTime file. It offers the ability to create a piece of music that you own, that exactly fits the length of your video, and that can be synchronized to the video through colors, keyframes, etc. You have several tools to customize the piece to your needs by controlling tempo, complexity, transposition, instrumentation, etc. You can choose when instruments enter or leave the composition.

IMovie 11 :: Adding More Than One Music Clip/track To A Project?
I add the first music clip/track just fine and place it where I want it and it positions itself below the frames. When I go to add the next clip/track, it won't place where I want it. It always goes to the beginning of the project and it "surrounds" the video clips in a large purple frame. I can move it downstream to where I want it, but it never "places" underneath the video frames like the first clip/track.

Applications :: IMovie - Making Music Video For Track
I'm wondering whether to go PC and Sony Vegas Home Studio or iMac and use iMovie but I'm not sure if iMovie can do what I want: I want to make a music video for a track I made, in Sony Vegas I can add a audio file to a track below the main video track and see it's waveform, then edit the video clips to match certain points in the track. Can iMovie do this? I've done a bit of searching on the net but can't find a answer. All I've seen the green background that gets added to clip window. Also is a Quadcore i5 OK for video work?

IMovie 11 :: Delete Events Once I've Published A Movie?
I've published a video (a compilation of video clips) in imovie 11 to my iPod. Can I now delete the video clip files from the event library in iMovie ? I can see my published movie which obviously I'll keep but the individual clips I presume can be deleted. I'm finding it easier to file my video clips in Iphoto rather than iMovie so will still have the original clips.

I would like to create a slide show video in iMovie to upload to youtube using a piece of music (non copyright natch, *cough*). As I only have a few images to use I'd like to be able to just simply repeat the images until the track stops.Being not terribly Mac/technically minded I'm having problems. The silde show should work around the complete piece of music but I can't seem to do it.

I am trying to get ANY iTunes music to show up in iPhoto '09 (version 8.1.1) or in iMovie, but in the settings under music, I can't get the toggle bar to show me anything. It's just like it is frozen when I click on it. Just the canned music from Apple plays. Yuk.I have d'load iTunes music, plus ripped it in from CDs I own, and made several playlists, long and short. But nothing shows at all. All the music is on the same drive iPhoto is... nothing is across a network, a partition or a separate drive.

Applications :: Won't Add Music To A Movie In IMovie / Crashed
I have been trying to add music to a movie in iMovie. However, when I click the music button, it just presses and releases, and no music list appears. It used to, but now it doesn't. So no way to add music.

Also, after doing the most basic things, such as creating one slide with just text, iMovie decides to crash, and the spinning colour wheel appears.

Both of these issues have only recently started happening. It is running on the latest 2.4GHz iMac with 3GB RAM, and only safari and messenger running in the background. It is very annoying, and I don't know how to resolve it.

IMovie 11 :: How To Permanently Delete Section In Middle Of Event Clip
There doesn't seem to be a way to simply select part of an event-clip and permanently delete it. If I reject a selection and and choose Space Saver, I can only start a process of deletion for things that don't have a key word, haven't been marked as favorite, or have not been added to any project. I can't simply ask that things that have been marked as rejected be deleted. This seems perverse. Am I missing something? In any case, how do I delete a selection short of giving everything else keywords, making everything else a favorite, or adding everything else to a project? Is this non-destructive editing taken too far?
