i'm using iMovie for the first time and I've been noticing all day that the video files I imported seem a little too fast. I compared them to the original videos, and guess what- the sound is sped up too! all the voices are a little too high-pitched and the video is a little too fast. At least the sound is in synch. But everyone sounds a little Chipmunky. 


I have no idea what the frame rate for the original video files are, so I don't know how to fix it.


Someone please help! This is driving me nuts!

iMovie '11, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    Hi honeybadgers

    If you click on a clip and bring up the inspector for clip/video/audio, the third section has "Speed" control where you can slow down or speed up the clip.  Slow the speed of the clip and the sound should become right too.

    Good luck
