How to speed up Focus title in iMovie? (READ DESCRIPTION)

I tried to speed up the Focus title in iMovie by making it shorter, but it maintained the same speed while being cut off before the text actually formed. I cannot speed up the actual clip itself, when I click Command+R nothing happens. Are there any other solutions?

Hi Joshua,
thanks a lot for your answer!
The reason why I don't use hardware triggering is the following: I want to acquire data when an external trigger line goes low and stop acquiring when the line goes high. But I want to do this for 30 consecutive triggers, and I want to be able to distinguish between every of the 30 "shots". I did not find a hardware trigger solution for that problem, so I tried the conditional retrieval option.
After your hint I wrote a vi which reads the buffer without conditional retrieval. The triggering is done with normal labview code based on the Array_Threshold.vi. This method is surprisingly fast and works fine!
Nevertheless, if you have some idea for the hardware triggering, please let me know!
Many greetings,
Tobias

  • How do you remove a title from iMovie?

    I recenty bought a MacBook and I am adding the final touches to my first mini film made with the Mac. I accidently added the wrong 'title' effect and I cannot work out to remove it. Does anyone know how I can remove it?

    Just select the clip in which the title appears, and hit "clear". iMovie will delete the last added effect, in this case the title, but will not delete the entire clip.

  • How to set the focus to the tabbed pane title?

    Dear Friends,
    I'm using tabbed pane (JTabbedPane) in my application. I have 2 tabbed panes and each contain some text fields and buttons.
    In first tabbed, I have 2 text fields, OK and Cancel buttons. I have to set the focus to the title of the tabbed pane after it lost focus from the Cancel button (focus has to move from Cancel button to tabbed pane title by pressing tab key).
    Could anyone please tell me how to set the focus to the tabbed pane title?
    Thanks in advance,
    Sathish kumar D

  • How do you get timeline view on imovie 08  and speed up a clip on imovie 08

    how do you get timeline view on imovie 08  and speed up a clip on imovie 08

    Hi
    You can not - Nobody else (if not a very selected few at Apple dev.group)
    TimeLine was lost in iMovie'08 and 09 and a very simple one re-introduced in iMovie'11
    Speed Change - Was omitted in iMovie'08 - and returned in iMovie'09 - BUT has to be used in a certain way - the glider/slide if used - will destroy the audio (a Known BUG - in both iM'09 and iM'11) but use of pre-set fixed no. 25% 50% 100% 200% etc. will work.
    Yours - still using iMovie HD6 - and LOVE it - Bengt W

  • How do you  speed up a clip in imovie?

    I have been learning how to use imovie but I cant seem to find how to speed up a clip... I think I have the newest version. Does someone know how?

    Give the more powerful iMovie 06 a try, you'll find these features and others built in.
    Below is a short video showing how slow / fast motion works in iMovie 06.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ekemnSluEgs
    iMovie 06 is a free download to iLife 08 owners. (THEY WANT YOU TO HAVE IT!)

  • How do I speed up a video in iMovie 11?

    If anyone can explain to me how to speed up or slow down a video in iMovie 11, it'd be appreciated.

    Click on the small gear icon (cogwheel) at the start of the clip and select Clip Adjustments from the pop-up menu. In the Inspector that opens, in the Clip tab about halfway down you will see a slider named "Speed". It's best to choose a speed from one of the slider settings, that is, 12.5%, 25%, 50%, 100%, 200%, 400% or 800%. Typing in your own custom speeds may cause audio glitches in your exported movie - however, these may not be apparent in preview. This was an issue with iMovie '09 and may still prevail in iMovie '11, but I've not seen any posts about it in the iMovie '11 forum, so it may be safe to use custom settings now. But better to be safe than sorry I guess!
    Note that just under the Speed slider there is a Direction check box labelled Reverse. Check (tick) the box to reverse the clip.

  • How do you speed up video clips for Imovie 8?

    How do you speed up video clips for Imovie 8?

    Do you mean get 55 minutes of real time footage to show in only 55 seconds?
    One way that might work but it will take a fair bit of work in multiple repeated steps.
    Select all the footage on the timeline and then use the Turtle/Rabbit slider to speed it all up to the maximum speed allowed. This of course won't be any where close to 55 seconds.
    BUT... export your movie back out to video tape or to a full quality DV format quicktime file. This speeded up version becomes "normal" time. Now reimport to iMovies. Since this is now normal speed as far as iMovie is concerned, you can again use the slider to speed the whole thing up to the max.
    Now just repeat as often as needed to get it as fast as you want. Export back out, reimport, adjust speed, export, import, adjust, etc.

  • Changing speed off the Title roll

    Can anybody explain me how to change the "rolling speed" off the Title roll in Imovie 9 ?
    I introduced a lot off names in the roll, but it is rolling too fast over the screen.

    You should see a bar over the video clips that represents the title. Drag the right handle of this bar to the right to make the title longer and slower.

  • How do I adjust my titles so they don't fade in and out? I have hundreds of photos/videos on screen for a second or so each, for a year-long birthday video, and I need the dates in my titles to be steady rather than fading in and out spastically.

    I have been working on a project since December of 2012 for my son's first birthday. Basically, it's a photo or quick video each day of his life so far. I used the "upper" title and made the titles not fade in and out, because that could give someone a seizure. The idea is a seamless title that ticks away each day. But in the new iMovie, it changed my settings, and I can't for the life of me find how to change them back.
    Now, each date flashes in and out, in and out, in and out. Fractions of seconds go by. It's really distracting and annoying.
    How do I get the titles to remain on screen and not fade in and out? I had it just how I wanted it, but now we're rapidly approaching my son's birthday, and the video is suddenly a mess.
    How do I fix this?

    I am working with the very same concept for my project and the auto fade in and out has messed everything up. If I hear or a fix I'll be sure to reply here to let you know!

  • How do I get a copy of iMovie 9?

    I reformatted my iMac hard drive with Lion. I restored from the downloaded version of Lion and therefore do not have iMovie on my system. I had upgraded to iMovie 9 but now it's not available in the App Store nor from iTunes. Does anyone know how I might get a copy of iMovie 9?

    Hi
    iMovie 9 can mean different things - What do You need ?
    iMovie History 08, 09 & 11
    NOT AN EVOLUTION FROM Previous versions but a totally new application.
    iMovie 08 (v7) 7.1.4 (aug 2007)
    A new way of storing project and an event library as well
    A totally new product in a pre-release state. Far from a working application.
    Lacks even basal functions
    No Speed-up or down or reverse
    Lot’s of video-formats lacking
    No cont. TimeLine - Bad logic
    No good for interlaced SD-video from miniDV tape aimed to a DVD release.
    (Discarding every second line makes quality as VHS in LP or EP mode = BAD)
    NO - Playback via Camera/FW - and this prevents 100% safety-backups and the use of an extra TV/Monitor as real-time Quality control (as in iM 1 to HD6)
    Color tools got much BETTER - nearly usable - even sort of a copy function
    Direct share to .Mac and YouTube
    More Cameras supported even AVCHD (need of Intel CPU)
    Do not run on G4 or older - G5 minimum
    Need of 1.9 GHz G5-Mac,
    (Can run on 1.8GHz G5 iMac if installed on external boot hard disk and speedier Mac - can’t install directly)
    Mac OS X.4.9 minimum
    QuickTime 7.2 included
    Aimed at - speed editing small video projects to be presented on the Internet - NOT DVDs
    iMovie 09 (v8) 8.0.6 (jan 2009)
    Far better than iMovie 08 but still far from good.
    Pic in pic, green screen but rudimentary
    Image stabilization - fairly good for amateur use
    Speed-up/down and reverse
    Bl/W, Old age etc
    Still - No Continuos TimeLine
    NO - Possibilities to enhance by use of third-part Plug-ins (all investments lost)
    NO - Playback via Camera/FW - and this prevents 100% safety-backups and the use of an extra TV/Monitor as real-time Quality control (as in iM 1 to HD6)
    Aimed at - speed editing small video projects to be presented on the Internet - NOT DVDs
    iMovie 11 (v9) 9.0.x - 9.0.4 (2011 july)
    Will be - Intel Only - Snow Leopard minimum Mac OS X.6.3
    YES:
    Advanced view including a true TimeLine ? Yes but rudimentary (very basic)
    True Story-board - where You even can write and prepare space for lacking material that needs to be obtained or re-shoot. YES
    Better wave-form presentation of audio and audio tools - Rubber-band - Yes
    Trailer creating tool
    ”Faces” as in iPhoto - NO - but this finds if there are people in some video-clips
    Better audio tools. Equalizer and a background audio reducer
    More Camera support e.g. 24fps
    NO
    not 64-bit only
    The Playback to Camera via FW - returns ? NO
    Full Quality to iDVD - NO - still only half - every second line - Questionable - Some indicates it to be able to loss-less Exports - Has to be proven
    Plug-in facility ? - NO
    No free text tool
    Tool to mask an identity e.g.. band over face or un-sharp area. - NO (could be obtained via Plug-ins in iM HD6 and earlier)
    Animation tool - To point on interesting object/player - NO animations refer to a totally different
    thing connected to Story-board and insert of ”dummy animations” while building a movie
    iMovie 13 (v10) 10.0.x - 9.0. (2013 autum)
    If iMovie'09 then You need the iLife'09 boxed CD-version.

  • My Mac has gone really slow since upgrading to Mavericks. Any suggestions as to how to speed things up again?

    My Mac has gone really slow since upgrading to Mavericks. Any suggestions as to how to speed things up again?

    First, back up all data immediately unless you already have a current backup. If you can't back up, stop here. Do not take any of the steps below.
    Step 1
    This diagnostic procedure will query the log for messages that may indicate a system issue. It changes nothing, and therefore will not, in itself, solve your problem.
    If you have more than one user account, these instructions must be carried out as an administrator.
    Triple-click anywhere in the line below on this page to select it:
    syslog -k Sender kernel -k Message CReq 'GPU |hfs: Ru|I/O e|find tok|n Cause: -|NVDA\(|pagin|timed? ?o' | tail | awk '/:/{$4=""; print}' | open -ef
    Copy the selected text to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C.
    Launch the Terminal application in any of the following ways:
    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)
    ☞ In the Finder, select Go ▹ Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.
    ☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Terminal in the icon grid.
    Paste into the Terminal window (command-V). I've tested these instructions only with the Safari web browser. If you use another browser, you may have to press the return key.
    The command may take a noticeable amount of time to run. Wait for a new line ending in a dollar sign (“$”) to appear.
    A TextEdit window will open with the output of the command. Normally the command will produce no output, and the window will be empty. If the TextEdit window (not the Terminal window) has anything in it, stop here and post it — the text, please, not a screenshot. The title of the TextEdit window doesn't matter, and you don't need to post that.
    Step 2
    There are a few other possible causes of generalized slow performance that you can rule out easily.
    Disconnect all non-essential wired peripherals and remove aftermarket expansion cards, if any.
    Reset the System Management Controller.
    Run Software Update. If there's a firmware update, install it.
    If you're booting from an aftermarket SSD, see whether there's a firmware update for it.
    If you have a portable computer, check the cycle count of the battery. It may be due for replacement.
    If you have many image or video files on the Desktop with preview icons, move them to another folder.
    If applicable, uncheck all boxes in the iCloud preference pane. See whether there's any change.
    Check your keychains in Keychain Access for excessively duplicated items.
    Boot into Recovery mode, launch Disk Utility, and run Repair Disk.
    If you have a MacBook Pro with dual graphics, disable automatic graphics switching in the Energy Saverpreference pane for better performance at the cost of shorter battery life.
    Step 3
    When you notice the problem, launch the Activity Monitor application in any of the following ways:
    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)
    ☞ In the Finder, select Go ▹ Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.
    ☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Activity Monitor in the icon grid.
    Select the CPU tab of the Activity Monitor window.
    Select All Processes from the View menu or the menu in the toolbar, if not already selected.
    Click the heading of the % CPU column in the process table to sort the entries by CPU usage. You may have to click it twice to get the highest value at the top. What is it, and what is the process? Also post the values for User, System, and Idle at the bottom of the window.
    Select the Memory tab. What value is shown in the bottom part of the window for Swap used?
    Next, select the Disk tab. Post the approximate values shown for Reads in/sec and Writes out/sec (not Reads in andWrites out.)
    Step 4
    If you have more than one user account, you must be logged in as an administrator to carry out this step.
    Launch the Console application in the same way you launched Activity Monitor. Make sure the title of the Console window is All Messages. If it isn't, select All Messages from the SYSTEM LOG QUERIES menu on the left. If you don't see that menu, select
    View ▹ Show Log List
    from the menu bar.
    Select the 50 or so most recent entries in the log. Copy them to the Clipboard by pressing the key combinationcommand-C. Paste into a reply to this message (command-V). You're looking for entries at the end of the log, not at the beginning.
    When posting a log extract, be selective. Don't post more than is requested.
    Please do not indiscriminately dump thousands of lines from the log into this discussion.
    Important: Some personal information, such as your name, may appear in the log. Anonymize before posting. That should be easy to do if your extract is not too long.

  • How do I insert a title in the middle of a a clip?

    Hi! I am new to iMovie - I have figured out how to put a title at the start of a clip but how do I insert a 'title' in the middle of a clip - I guess like a new chapter heading - I want it on a background/title graphic like the ones you select  rather then as text over the top of the video?
    Hope that makes sense .... many thanks
