I have a still image that I want to insert at the start of my movie. I also have an audio file that I need to play while the still image displays. How can I make the still image 'play' for an exact amount of time to allow the audio to complete before the rest of my movie plays?

    First - insert the photo first in TimeLine

    then figure out the exact time for the audio (in mm.ss.ff format (minutes.seconds.frames e.g. 00.15.12)


    (You must have Advance tools turned on in iMovie Preferences)


    Then click on the small cog-wheel symbol in the photo (in TimeLine) and select Duration and insert the duration time in the Clip-adjustment window opening
