I know the maximum amount of time for a song to fade in iMovie is 2 seconds but it just sounds too abrupt. I seen someone drag it into Garage Band and change it, but it looked complicated and I don't remember. Any suggestions? Thanks

Which version of iMovie are you using?

somewhere there is a menu to view soundtrack volume or something to that degree (sorry I am away from a mac now). You'll then get a purple line that represents the volume. You can click the area you want to begin the fade and manually place it. Does that make sense? I hope so!
