IMovie 11 :: Source Clip Missing


Well I was at a good stopping point (all projects are done) and I figured since I had imported a bunch of stuff to my boot drive I would move it over to my events folder on my Media drive. Seemed like a fair assumption. It was hit or miss and I am not sure exactly why.

Some projects are fine others say "Source clip missing"No big deal since I am done with the projects but was wondering if anyone has played with trying to get iMovie to point back to the missing files?

IMovie 11 :: Replace Clip Doesn't Update The Clip / Image?
I have a clip / image. I right click to Reveal in Finder...edited by image in Photoshop and it does not update in iMovie 11. I tried dragging it back onto the timeline, click Replace...still doenst update the image. I even tried deleting the clip...drag the new image back into the timeline and still uses the old one.

Why is this so hard? What am I doing wrong? Is there a way to refresh a cache or something...you shouldn't have to go deleting cache files or something just to replace an image...it's version 11 for gods sake, I would think somebody has run across this problem by now.

IMovie 11 :: Clips Missing Audio After Exported From IMovie?
While in iMovie, there was no problem with the video and audio but after exporting, 3 clips out of the whole project were missing the audio. After trying numerous things like deleting the clip from the timeline and putting it back in, undoing the audio skimming, exporting using quicktime, movie and DVD, nothing worked. We even took out the clips missing the audio and created a new project and those exported perfectly with both audio and video. What worked in the end was going into "clip" and detaching the audio. Doesn't make sense but it worked and I was able to export and create a DVD with the audio.

Final Cut Pro :: Missing Sequence In Source List Of Project
In a documentary I'm editing I created a sequence for one of the interviews. I have then nested parts of that sequence within another sequence to make the segment. So, basically, I have a sequence for each interviewee, and I've inserted parts of those various interviewee sequences together in one sequence, which is the full edited segment, showing clips from all the various interviewees.

One of those sequences, when I double click to open in a new tab, opens up just fine. However, I cannot for the life of me find that sequence in the source list of my project anymore. The sequence works. It functions. I can double click a part of it from the edited sequence and then it opens the nested sequence up, but again, can't find it in the project source list. I have scoured my project for it (and it's not even that big).

OS X :: No Sound In IMovie Clip?
I'm a newbie coming over from MS for 12 years. Last week I recorded a short clip in iMovie...how neat is that

Tonight I recorded one again and now there is no sound when I played it back. I know I've fiddled with things in system preferences so maybe I set something that has now affected the sound in iMovie

I've checked all the obvious volume controls, they're all up and on.

IMovie 11 :: Handbrake Or MPEG Stream Clip?
What is the best (ideally free) tool for converting MPG video files into a format that iMovie 11 can handle? I have used Handbrake in the past, but I've also seen mention of MPEG Streamclip - are there advantages to one over the other? Are there other good alternatives?

IMovie 11 :: Can You Set / Change Clip Date?
Ideally I should be able to do what I used to do in iMovie06, right click on the clip and change or set the date. I haven't been able to do that in iMovie09. (iMovie09 shows me the date when I hover over clips, but I cannot change it. If I click on properties, I can adjust many things, except the date. Sometimes I am able to change the date by changing the file name inside the iMovie Events directory to something like "clip-2010-08-01.dv", but that doesn't always work).

IMovie 11 :: Cannot Adjust Clip Speed When Using Template
I create a simple project and add my clip to it, I can control the playback speed by simply going into the clip inspector and adjusting a slider. However, if I use an iMovie project template (in my case supernatural) and I add the EXACT same clip, the speed option is gone!??? I have tried everything to locate the speed option to no avail. How can I change a "shot" or clips property to allow the speed to be changed within that template?

IMovie 11 :: Can't Adjust Clip Duration Of Still Photos
I inserted a still photo in one of my projects in iMovie which has a a clip duration of 5s when added. I clicked the cogwheel icon then chose the inspector to adjust the duration. I've managed to changed it to 3s but after I clicked "Done", the clip duration is still under 5s.

I didn't encountered this problem before in iMovie '10 and I've searched over at Google and found out that many iMovie '11 users have the same dilemma.

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 :: Audio Editing A Few Seconds Of An IMovie Clip?
I took a video on my iPhone 4, uploaded it to my computer, and imported it into iMovie so I can edit the sound. At a few points throughout the one minute clip, my voice is overbearingly loud since I'm holding the phone nearest to me... and I'd like to adjust the sound (I guess simply decrease the volume?) at these few points where my voice overpowers the rest of the video... so as to make it less awkward for myself, really... before I share the video with any of my friends and family. How would I go about this to just edit the volumes of a few short segments?

ITunes :: Why Can't Import An IMovie Clip (.MOV)
After importing HD video (from a Canon Vixia HV40) into iMovie 11 (v 9.04) at 960x540 resolution, you get a bunch of .mov files. Does anyone know why those .mov files, as they come out of the import process,will not import into iTunes? Here are the details. My brother wanted to put a small one onto his iPad. I told him the simplest way (or so I thought) to do it would be to import the .mov file into iTunes (v 10.6.1) and then sync his iPad. There was no need to make a project from the single clip, then share it. However, iTunes will not import any of the .mov files made with the iMovie import. Does anyone know why? This happens on my iMac (core i7) and his (core i5). Of course, if I open the .mov file in QuickTime Player (v 10.1) then export to a .m4v file (export setting "iPad, iPhone & Apple TV"), the new file imports into iTunes just fine. In case iTunes thinks you shouldn't be importing clips from the iMovie events folder, I dragged the clip to the desktop and tried the import, but that did not work either. I guess what this comes down to is given that iMovie, QuickTime Player and iTunes all come from Apple, why can iMovie and QuickTime Player read the file while iTunes cannot? I would think the same code would be in all three products (do the iMovie and QuickTime Player developers refuse to share, while the iTunes developers are lazy?).

Final Cut Pro :: Importing An IMovie HDV Clip?
my producer purchased a new MacMini with SnowLeopard. I am on a G5 Tiger OS. We are trying to get some smooth communication (as smooth as possible at least) between the two different OS's. After much headache in setting Quicktime 7.0 Pro on the SnowLeopard OS, I finally got iMovie to capture video under the QT7.0 presets as FCP5.1.4 refuses to capture HDV video under SnowLeopard. So now, to make this short, only one problem remains...

When the iMovie footage goes into FCP 5.1.4 , it requires a time-consuming render. I'm wondering if it's possible that a setting is messed up on FCP causing it to want to render? HDV footage imported thru FCP directly requires no rendering. This is my first time doing iMovie footage -> FCP.

Here are the stats of the video imported through iMovie.

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?

Applications :: IMovie Project - Adding Audio Clip Over Still Image
I have a project I'm working on from a birthday party. What I'm trying to do is take a 5 second audio clip from a piece of video (a bunch of 3 year olds screaming happy birthday) and use it as audio over a still image to start the video. I detached the audio that I want to use, highlighted it and copied it. I can't figure out how to use it elsewhere. Maybe it's not possible to do this in iMovie 09?

iMovie 11 ver 9 turns entire video clip green after speed conversion

This is a big problem as I make LOTS of video each month. It happens after I click on video clip adjustments so I can speed up or slow down a clip. After its converted the entire clip, they all turn green and it cannot be undone. Its getting frustrating cause I really like that feature when I make "how to' videos.

MacBook Pro :: Completely Empty The Trash Including A IMovie Clip?
I have taken everything out of the trash and then returned items in small groups for successful emptying.  That identified the problem which seems to be one iMovie 08 clip that causes the Secure Empty Trash to freeze.  The progress bar shows that it contains 3 items which drops to 2 almost instantly.  Then it freezes and just stays there (45 minutes or longer) until I select Force Quit.  Clicking on the Stop Emptying Trash has no effect whatever.

IMovie 11 :: Transition And Still Clip Time Adjustments Don't Work Correctly?
When I have a group of still photos and transitions in a movie along with a music track I can't seem to get the transitions or the clips to keep a time setting I apply using the "Transition Adjustments" drop-down menu.

I put in 2.9s and when I click "Done" they all become 3.4s. When I try to change the transition time same thing, 0.9s becomes 0.6s.

There must be something obvious I'm missing in the overall approach to times with a music clip or not? I tried removing the music clip entirely in case it was pinning the time of each clip cumulatively to the music, but same thing with no music.

It's about 12 gigs and opens fine in quicktime. I reimported the media, and it still won't open in FCP.

IMovie 11 :: Missing IPhoto Movies From Old Projects
So as we all know, if you move where your movies reside, iMovie can not relink to them (can't find them). I just noticed that since the new iPhoto reorganized where it keeps its media within the iPhoto package, that Pre-iLife '11 iMovie projects say any movies that came from iPhoto can not be found - even though iMovie can see the Events in the Event Library just fine.
