Applications :: Does IMovie 09 Use So Much RAM When Creating Thumbnails?

May 24, 2010

Seriously, it's absolutely ridiculous and brings my entire system to a crawl until I restart. Just look at how many page outs I have after iMovie is done making thumbnails of one seven minute clip:

My CPU usage during this process was around 10% so what gives? I have an early 2009 iMac with 4GB's of RAM.

Applications :: Creating New Movie Genre Thumbnails In ITunes 8

Sep 21, 2008

I saw a couple of other threads talking about this and thought we should have a thread where you can show off and share your own custom made Genre thumbnails. In case your not sure how to do it this is a good guide: [URL]. Basically you need to create a jpeg, put it in the right folder (iTunes>Contents>Resources) with the correct name and then adjust a tiny bit of information in the genre plist.

Its very simple and people who have no experience with this kind of stuff will be able to do it easily. Also if (like me) you are annoyed at the fact that some genres are missing you can add your own in the exact same way as in he link posted. Note in mine that Action & Adventure are now two separate genres and i've added Gangster, Kung Fu, Comic & Anime. Mine are all supposed to be the best films of that genre (ok maybe not Transformers ). Pic link now added, download!

Software :: Unable To View Thumbnails In Imovie Hd / Each Thumbnail Is Shaded In Green

Mar 31, 2009

I upgraded to imovie 08 last year and have not been able to learn how to use it. As I still have imovie hd, I opened a new project in the old imovie hd and imported some photos and movies (.mov) files. When the movies and photos came in, each thumbnail is shaded in green. I cannot see through this green shading to the photos or movies at all. Even when I click on the thumbnail of either a photo or movie it just comes up as a large green square, however when I 'play' the movie file from the clip viewer I can see the contents of the movie. As soon as I stop playing it, the clip goes back to having the green shading over the top. Have you heard of this before and is there anything I can try to fix it. I have looked in the forum but cannot see anything specific to this problem

OS X :: Creating Slide Show Music Video On IMovie For Youtube

Jan 7, 2010

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.

Apr 8, 2008

I recently installed Aperture 2.1 and love it until....

A large collection of pictures (jpgs) was imported and after 2 days a lot of thumbnails are missing in the library. The images are still there, I can click on the gray spot the image supposed to be and view the preview and master.

It very annoying! I am planning to import about 10.000 images soon and this problem must be solved before.

attached you can find a screenshot of the problem

Applications :: Using Adobe Bridge CS4 - Thumbnails Out Of Range?

Mar 29, 2009

I'm used to Bridge now, it's faster than iPhoto and I can use my own folder structure instead of the ridiculous "events". Places/Faces and the slideshow of iPhoto is great though.

Anyway, when I'm in "thumbnail view" in Bridge, the thumbnails exceed my screen width. So if I'm on the most right thumbnail on my screen, and I go one right, it goes about 3 more pictures to the right (which I can't see) before jumping to the next row (starting at the most left picture of course).

And I don't see any sliders: no horizontal and no vertical. I can scroll vertically though, but not horizontally.

Applications :: App For Snapshots / Thumbnails / Preview From Video?

Jan 3, 2010

I'm in need of an application that creates a single .jpg with multiple thumbnails within, giving you a preview of a video.

I have found a couple of apps that do this, such as Screen Grabber and QiPo. How ever, none of these are suitable;

Screen Grabber under 10.6 doesn't work with WMV files. The output image file is full of black frames.

QiPo is the best out of all of them, how ever it doesn't allow you to select how many thumbnails to have in the one preview image file (it's pre set to 18).

I have emailed the developer of Screen Grabber regarding a OS X 10.6 fix, but am yet to hear back from him, so in the mean time i am still trying to find a Mac app that can serve my needs.

Applications :: Why IPhoto Thumbnails Not Displayed Anymore

Apr 23, 2010

I just opened iPhoto and found that when I click on an "Album" (menu to the left), it just opens up with full size images. It used to display thumbnails and I'd need to click on the image to open it into full size. Is there some option that I inadvertently adjusted to cause this change?

Applications :: IMovie 5 HD Project In IMovie 8?

Sep 21, 2009

I have a project file that was created using iMovie 5 HD. In this project file were a large number of unused clips and also the final film, edited with transitions, backing music, end credits, etc.

However when I import this project file into iMovie 8 I cannot find the final edited film anywhere, just all the clips that were both used and unused within the project file.

How can I get the final film back without spending about a week re-editing everything?

Applications :: Edit In IMovie/Export 2 GarageBand - Export To IMovie Upload To YouTube?

Jan 16, 2010

So i've recently gotten in the uploading to YouTube craze with my Flip Mino HD but i'm not too happy at the way i've been doing this and am hoping there is an easier way.

As of late i've been importing what i film into iMovie. In iMovie i'll edit the video to my liking. In iMovie i'll "export" to the media browser so it'll show up in GarageBand. Then i'll open GarageBand and edit my film further, dealing with sound; adding music. After that i'll export it as a .MOV to my desktop. Then i'll open iMovie again and import that .MOV file and from there in iMovie will have it upload to YouTube in its original HD format.

Applications :: Won't Import Imovie Project Files Into Imovie / Not Recognizing Files

May 8, 2009

So, I have all of my imovie projects backed up on my external harddrive, as well as the imovie program. I accidentally deleted all of the imovie projects and events from the imovie application on my laptop. When I try to re-import the imovie files into imovie, it doesn't recognize the files. I have tried to convert them with iSkySoft Video Converter. That converter program does not recognize the files either. I also tried burning the files onto a disc and then pulling them off the disc with the Handbrake program. This doesn't work either. I also tried importing the files into iMovie HD, which I have on my desktop, but to no avail. Are these files alll useless now? I'm at my wits end because I have spent literally months compiling footage for a documentary.

Applications :: IPhoto Creates Faces Thumbnails Files And Places In IPhoto Library / Data Folder

Jan 27, 2009

Thought I'd start this thread for people to discover/add any info they have on what iPhoto Faces is doing behind the scenes to help with troubleshooting, since Apple doesn't have any preferences for Faces in the iPhoto GUI. This is only for people who like to understand what is happening behind the scenes. Please note this is not for everyone and anytime you do anything to your iPhoto library you risk corruption and should have a backup copy. What I've noticed so far:

- iPhoto scans the library the first time it opens, and creates 2 faces .db files with the iPhoto Library:


- iPhoto creates Faces thumbnails files and places them in the iPhoto Library/Data folder along with the other thumbnails it creates................

Applications :: Creating IChat ID

Mar 19, 2009

I am in the process of setting up iChat on my spousal unit's iMac. I've already created a Jabber account, using her gmail address. That seems to work fine. Now I'd like to add an AIM account. When I click on "Get an iChat Account..." in the Account Setup window,It was my understanding that this signup gets you an AIM account, but it from the first line on the page, it seems to assume that you're using .Mac (even more oddly, since .Mac doesn't actually exist any longer).What am I missing here? Aren't AIM, MobileMe and .Mac accounts the same for purposes of iChat?

Applications :: Creating Graphs In Numbers?

Oct 19, 2010

I just have a quick question about Numbers (iWork '09). I need to graph some supply and demand graphs for school. How would I go about doing this? Whenever I create a graph based on a chart, it just plots each row as it's own line. I can only edit the values in the Y-axis, and obviously I need to be able to work with the X-axis as well.

Update: I played around with it more and figured it out. I guess you have to graph it as a scatter plot and then choose to connect the dots, and remove the dots, rather than choose the line graph, whose icon looks just like a graph of supply and demand.

Applications :: Creating 200 MB RAR Files Out Of Directory

Dec 20, 2008

I'm trying create 200 MB rar files out of a 700 + MB directory. When I check "split archive" and select "user defined" under the volume size dropdown and click create rar, it creates 500+ rar archives! Nowhere does it ask me how big I want the volume size for "user defined". Does anyone know how to use this app? I mean, I know how to alternatively archive into 200 mb parts (zip them, split & concat the zip file) but that requires the user to unarchive twice.

Applications :: Creating Menu In DVD Studio Pro

Feb 5, 2009

I am making a dvd with instructions of how to train in the gym. I am making the menu in dvd studio pro 4. I want the main menu to contain an image with the front and rear musculature of the human body, and you can then choose a muscle by going up and down. When you click the muscle you enter a submenu where a small list of videos are available where you train that particular muscle.

I have made a .psd with the images of the body in black and white, and about 10-12 layers where the same muscles are cut out and coloured red (highlighted areas which will light up while navigating in the menu). [URL]. There is the .psd file if you want to see what it looks like.

Applications :: Why Does Mail Keep Creating Folders

Mar 13, 2009

this is kind of an annoyance and I can't seem to find any answers online. My left column on Mail usually has 3 folders (inbox, sent, trash). That's how I like it. Every once in a while though, it creates a new folder under my email address. Why does this happen, and can I stop it? In case it helps, I only have 1 email address and it's a .me account. Also, I do send emails from my Mac, iPhone and occasionally [URL] from a work PC. I don't know if that's relevant, I just wanted to get as many facts out there as I can.
