When I skim my clips, I don't hear audio, regardless of the state of the Audio Skim option. Audio definitely is there; if I play a clip, I hear it. But toggling the Audio Skim button (or pressing Command-K, or working on the Audio Skimming option in menu View) has no effect; my skimming stays silent.

Any other audio feature in every other application I use works as expected and in System Preferences all looks normal.

Have you got any suggestions please?

Thanks in advance to everyone listening.

MacBook Pro 17" (Early 2009), Mac OS X (10.6.2), It works pretty well :-)

    Having the exact same problem. Have plenty of videos in the library (from Aperture) and can video skim them, and can hear the audio when i skim the video once already in the project, but audio skimming does not work while the clip is in preview.

    thanks

    doode1103,
    I solved by deleting iMovie preferences, in my ~/Library/Preferences folder (inside your home space). I closed iMovie, moved away in another folder the com.apple.iMovie8.plist file (just in case), and relaunched iMovie. Skimming is now working.

    thanks lvcivs, tried your method but no luck.... skimming while not in the projet still gives me no sound....
    any ideas?

    thanks

    I also have this problem. It seems to be a bug in version 8.0.6. Before that everything worked fine. Deleting preferences didn't help. When closing iMovie and re-opening it works for a while, but then soon audio skimming suddenly disappears.

    Please send also bug report to make sure Apple would prioritize fixing this. In iMovie menu there is a selection 'Provide iMovie feedback'

    doode1103,
    I noticed that there's something different going on than I thought. Skimming actually doesn't work, initially. Depending on size of your clips/projects and speed of operations, sound works, but often it takes several instants before I actually hear it.

    Could be due to trouble accessing sound tracks fast enough for iMovie, perhaps.
