I'm trying to split a video into three segments for YouTube upload. However, there's no timecode so I can't tell how long each clip is or where I am timewise in the project. This is stupid!! How do I get around this?

I don't know if this will help or not, but here is how I do it. I move the slider that condenses the number of frames that you can see to a number of lines as closely as possible to be divisible by the number of videos I want to end up with. then I guestimate where I need to break into segments. It usually gets me close enough.

I don't have iMovie '09 anymore so I don't know if this has only happened since the upgrade to iMovie '11, but iMovie '11 most definitely DOES have a timeline when I look at an edited movie in "single row" view. Both the individual clips' length (in seconds) and the total length (along the bottom of the display) appear.

So upgrade to iMovie '11 if you're not seeing that.
