Hey! So this is my first post on here but I have been scouring the forums for a solution and havent quite found one. So heres my problem.

Ive made a slideshow/movie in iMovie HD 06 and have also made a soundtrack that goes along with it. The timing of the soundtrack is extremely important and for some reason when I try to share it to iDVD 08 it starts to lag behind more and more after the first couple chapters. And the audio that I have that is part of my video clips works (no problems with off sync of 16bit audio) just the soundtrack from itunes. Ive also tried everything I could think of or find on these forums with QT. No dice. The soundtrack starts to lag behind after exporting to QT or just with the iDVD previewer. HELP PLEASE!!! I have to get this done asap!!!!!

My last choice is to try and get iDVD 06 working I guess but I havent been able to find any real answers how to get it working with 08.

Im running a mac air, OS X 10.5.5 1.6ghz duo with 2gb ddr2 sdram. Not much hard drive space left..but enough. Around 15gb.

Any help would be appreciated!! THANKS!

Perhaps the files need to be converted to 48kHz, or at least the same sample rate.

Hey xstep,

Thanks for the input but I actually just managed to fix it! YES!!!! Finally after about a week of attempting everything I figured it out. So if anyone has problems somewhat similar to mine this was a sure fix for me.

Basically it was my soundtrack that was going out of sync. So all I did was tried exporting to QT but much smaller pieces of my slideshow/movie. I did it by just selecting the scenes I wanted to take and thus exporting my movie bit by bit. I seperated my show into about 7 segements. Then when I had them all in QT .mov format and each segement was in sync i just dragged them into a new iMovie HD project. This put the video and audio all together in chunks. Then iDVD worked like a charm! No off sync'ing! Thank God I didn't partition my drive for iDVD 06! Whew!
QUOTE Thanks
