Hi there,

I'm having issues when trying to edit my iphone 4s videos in imovie.

Basically, what I see in the camera when recording and what I see in the camera when watching the video and what I see in the "project clip" area of imovie is different then what I see in the timeline section of imovie.

It's like I get the FULL video everywhere, including in the "project clip" section of imovie, but when I put the clip into the project, then the clip in the project area has the top of the movie cut off a bit.

I first could fix it within project properties by changing crop to fit in frame, but even now that's not working.

Here are some screen shots I did for you guys:

This is what the video clip looks like when I shot it, when I play it back and when I play it back in the "project clip" section of imovie.

Notice how much headroom there is.

Ok now this is what the clip looks like when I add it to the project in imovie. Notice the headroom is gone?

Now I know it's not the same exact clip but the same thing happens throughout the entire video.

Can anyone help me? Do I have a setting off or something? Thanks!


P.S. I'm using imovie '11 version 9.0.4 and an iphone 4s.
QUOTE Thanks
