I've been so far very impressed with the power of iMovie 09. One problem I have though is combining separate audio tracks to my video.

I got the video clip and even matched up the corresponding .wav file. So now I have the video in the "Project Area" with matching green audio under it.

The problem is I now want to edit a few clips out of it. The problem is the video and audio aren't combined. So if I edit some video, I lost my sync with the audio.

Is there a way to flatten or combine these tracks so I can edit them together? My only idea is to export the video file and then re import the combined video /w audio, but that seems like a long work around.

QUOTE Thanks

It doesn't seem that this a built in feature for iMovie 09. I would hope they add it to iMovie 10 because it seems so basic.

I believe the FCP term for this is "linking" Linking the video with separate audio
QUOTE Thanks
