View Full Version : imovie: Audiowaves VERY delayed when editing

09-14-2015, 11:22 PM
I'm editing videos that contain audio (pic attached).

I get something like this immediately after clipping the video (you can't see waveforms on right). The audio is there, I takes the wave forms WAAAYYYY too much time to come back. And I can't continue editing (quickly) until they return.

This has been happening on my i7 macbook pro retina (2013), and my brand new iMac 5k imovie. It happens even on SMALL files - so it doesn't appear to be a size issues either.

Any ideas ?!?!?!?

Plz help !!
