    Red face animated gif in imovie
    i currently have a video that i have edited but i want to add an animated character i have built to the frames, to overlay the video, not to become a separate frame.
    so that they are integrated into the same frame.

    so that the video plays in the background and the animation appears in the corner at the same time, a bit like a logo or watermark but i still want the animated motion involved.

    how do i do this?

    any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Specs:
    PPC Mini, 10.4.11. Intel Mini, 10.6.8. MacBook Pro, 10.10.5. iPhone 3GS.
    As far as I know, iMovie doesn't take animated gifs. You'll have to convert it to a video file(Quicktime would be best for iMovie), and then you can use the Picture in Picture option to do what you want.

    I have found a youtube video on how to get a GIF into iMovie here. It is v/ basic, but i can't find how to overlay a GIF onto a Movie at all, without going into the FinalCutPro type of App that cost $$$.
    There is plenty out there with GIF's in a KeyNote/Power Point presentations.

    I found something from another thread here in M-F that mentions Animated GIF's into video using………… Quick Time 7 Pro for a lot less $ than FCP. . . . There are a lot of tutorials out there but can't find a specific one atm.

    HTH some

    Cheers
