Hi everyone.

I'm new, more or less to the imovie forum.

I have imported a video clip into imovie, and there is a long red line on top of where the audio waveform should be. Does this mean that the audio did not get imported, or that it is muted somehow? I don't see any waveform whatsoever, nor do I see any way to "unmute" the audio. When I play the video clip in VLC, the audio plays fine. What am I missing?
