I want to add a cloud of smoke or burst of flames into a movie. I don't know where to get these animations that I can put into iMovie 11. Any ideas?

Do you want to add special effects into a current video frame (for instance blow something up) or do you want to add a completely new frame? These special effects are called pre-keyed footage or green screen effects and can be purchased in an action essentials pack (these are HD and can be moved around in imovie) or downloaded for free on youtube (these can't be altered in imovie). A great youtube channel is: bestgreensceen
They make many great animations and effects such as explosions, lightning, or even animals walking across the screen.

Hope this helps
