Hey,
I'm working with imovie 11,
After I detach the audio, how can I delete the video, and put the audio when just presenting a still picture?
When I choose only the video and delete, both audio and video are deleted...

I am needing to slow down a video in iMovie, but how do I keep the voice normal?.. HELP..thnx

When your making a movie trailer in iMovie, it gives you the scenes where a video should be played, and I was wondering how you can delete a scene that you don't have a video for. I have tried all the ways that I know of, so please help. Question: how you delete a scene that you don't have a video for?

HI,

I'm finishing an iMovie edit (for the first time:) and just need to import music from an existing MP4 video I made to use as background music. It seems pretty simple - I dragged the clip onto the edit timeline and was prompted to add music only. I did this and I can see the clip below the video image highlighted in green. But when I play it I can't hear the music soundtrack at all.

I'm sure this must be a simple resolve but not having any luck so far. Any advice?
Thanks

I would like to be able to detach the audio as a wav file so that I can work on it in sound forge. How do I do that? Thanks!
