I haven't used iMovie in a year or so.  Just opened iHD & every still photoI drop into it gets automatically panned.  I can't find where the controls are to set where the Burns effect starts and stops.  Anybody care to help ?  Thanks !

    Please tell us what version of iMovie you have, as well as what Mac and what version of OS X.

    Thx Klaus. I'm running a late model 17" MBP on Mountain Lion. I'm afraid to try iMovie '11 cuz of all the heinous reviews. I still have iMovie HD & that's the version I can't find the Burns control on. Much obliged for your willingness to help out...

    I still have iMovie HD

    Version 5 or 6?

     

    Imovie 5 will not work with Mountain Lion. iMovie 6 can.

    Klaus may not be available right now, so thought I'd jump in.

     

    Click on the panel labelled "Show Photo Settings" just above the tabs for Clips, Themes, Media etc. See the image below:

    A small pop-up window will appear. Check the box marked "Ken Burns Effect" to activate the effect, then set the start and end points, and also the required duration.

    EDIT: Sorry, just realised I gave you instructions on how to set the Ken Burns Effect. If the box is checked, simply uncheck it to deactivate the effect.

    THANKS FOR JUMPING-IN JOHN !

     

    It's been several years since I've used iMovie & I really appreciate you taking the time to remind me where to find that control.  You're the best buddy !

    Hi Jonny,

     

    Yes, I don't use iMovie HD 6 much either now. I mainly use iMovie '11, so had to open HD 6 and figure out what to do. It all comes back to me now! HD 6 was a great version which I miss at times, mainly because I can't use my Slick Gee Three plug-ins (of which I have all 10 Volumes). But I'm now using an AVCHD camcorder, and iMovie '11 is better suited to this format and has some great features. Also it has an excellent library system for Events and Projects. I'm also beginning to work with Final Cut Pro X, which is far more complex than any version of iMovie and therefore has a much steeper learning curve.

     

    Anyway - glad to help, and thank you for the kind words (and reward)!

     

    John
