    imovie 09 - transition time won't increase
    Hi all,

    just wondered if anyone could throw some light on the following?

    using imovie 09, on apple macbook pro.

    I have a transition 'circle close' in between two still images, every time i try to increase the transition time up to say 20 seconds from 0.1 it won't allow me.

    any help much appreciated

    I had the same problem in the beginning-are you clicking the little settings button as you have the transition selected? That is how I was able to adjust the my settings the way I preferred them to be.

    My guess is that at least one of your images is only on screen for less than 10 seconds. To do a 20 second transition your video/picture have to be on the screen that log to begin with. Think about it.

    For a 2 second transition, the picture before and the picture after the transition insertion point have to each be on the screen at least 2 seconds each. The transition is combining both images to create an effect.

    When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

    Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.
