Troubleshooting:

1.  If pictures are showing up black they are too large! Go to Iphoto,  select all,  then go to file menu choose exprot 1 photo, click on the down arrow and  choose

2. To remove the Ken Burns effect during stop motion.

3. On video camera must save the photos to  the sd card and then use Ms. Kill's computer to import. They don't read with the card reader.

4. If you don't bring in  your picture first, for your background on your green screen  will not work.  Here is how to resolve this. You move  your movie to another clip and then bring in the picture. Then move the green screen video backover the picture This will allow for green screen.

 

  • For images smaller than 640 X 480, , iMovie will add a black border.
  • Zooming an image smaller than 640 X 480 will show marked graininess.
    • Images in jpg, jpeg, gif, tiff, or pict formats (some pict images do not work well) can be imported.
    • While any size image can be imported, images in landscape mode, at least 640 x 480 pixels in size work best
