I'm trying to split a voice over audio clip  I recorded in Quicktime and imported into my project. I can't find the precision editor nor can I select the clip and activate the split clip command under the Clip menu.  It's dim.  I cannot find out how to split it.  Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?


I'm using iMovie 11.

MacBook Pro Intel Core i7, Mac OS X (10.6.6)

    First I think you must turn on Show Advanced Tools from Preferences to be able to see the Precision Editor.  You don't need that to split a clip though.  The easiest way is to right click on a clip where you want to split it and choose Split Clip.

    Using iMovie 11 on Mac 10.8.3, when I right-click on a sound track, this is the menu I see:iMovie.png


    No 'split clip'.
