Greetings jjby.

Can you let us know what effect you are trying to render and how long is the clip you are working on?

iMovie 08 or 06?

Cheers Mitcherooney

Hello again.

Well, I've tried to simulate the problem with a one second clip(!) and something a bit more realistic - one second isn't really long enough to see the effect, surely. The point is, it works for me.
The only suggestion that springs to mind is that the whole project (particularly any discarded bits of the movie) are clogging up the system. Check to see how there is in your project trash (bottom right hand corner). If there's a lot, empty it. IMovie will ask you to save the project. Then try again. Hope this might be a solution to your problem. Let me know. Chhers M
