Just have been trying to figure out a few things but have had no luck, hoping one of you could tell me.

1) How do I increase the volume of a certain clip of a piece of footage without raising the whole thing.

2) How do I make a dot on a video, like circle an object on the video etc

I'll assume you are using iMovie 08 or 09...

I'm not sure there is a way to do number 1 without using a trick. That trick would be to split the clip once or twice to isolate the area of problem. Then apply volume changes to that.

There is a 'Normalize' audio function you could try, but I'm not sure if that will do what you want.

Number 2 also doesn't have a simple solution either. If you are using iM09, and maybe 08, you might be able to cheat by overlaying an image with transparency.

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.
