Let me start off by saying I am completely Mac - iMovie stupid, so any help is appreciated. I made a photo montage using Windows Movie Maker, but was having some problems with quality, so I switched to iMovie (09). But Ive come across a few problems as well
If any of you used WMM, when you add in the fade in or fade transition, that is what I want the photos in iMovie to do. Sorry, not really sure how to explain it. I guess what I want is for the photos to sort of fade in/overlap each other (towards the end of each photo). Like this: iMovie Video Transitions - Overlap transition - Overlap
Why does the audio shrink when I add it? The full song is 12:37 but only 12:26 or so is added. Ive tried stretching it to the full length and adding more stuff, but that doesn't work.

Unpin the audio.

You do this by right-clicking the green "audio" portion of the timeline, and choosing "unpin."

sorry to bring this up again but I still don't know how to overlap the photos? I did take a look at the article but I might have missed something... I was able to fix the audio though.

Sorry, forgot to answer this part last time.

iMovie 08/09 doesn't do overlap natively, it cross fades. There's a fairly easy workaround, though: take a new still image of the photo as it appears in the last moments (I'm assuming you have the Ken Burns effect going), and make that still two or three seconds long, then cross fade to a similar still of the first image of the next photo.

Thank you!! It worked for my first few photos (the ones with Ken Burns). The rest of my photos are fit, do I have to change them to Ken Burns to get the same effect? I rather leave them as fit though.

I should think this would work regardless.
