    Hi there,
    I'm using iMovie 09 with the very latest updates applied and I am having trouble with audio skimming in just one of my projects.
    The project is only 8 minutes long and is just a collage of pictures to music.
    The audio skimming button is toggled to on but no green bars show in the equalizer when I skim over the video. The audio works fine when playing the project and in other windows around the project such as the event viewer. I have plenty of free hard drive space and the thumbnails slider is set to '5s'. ALL of my other projects skim no problem.

    Now this is the strange part. If I click to enter the precision editor on any part of the video and then click done (even without altering anything) the skimming comes back. It thus disappears if place a new item in the timeline until I go back into the precision editor where it re enables itself.
    It's very frustrating and I don't have a clue where to start with trying to sort it. Anyone got any ideas?
    Thanks
    Ross.

    UPDATE*

    IT SEEMS THAT IT IS NOT SKIMMING AUDIO WHEN ONLY PHOTOGRAPHS AND A SOUNDTRACK MAKE UP THE PROJECT. AS SOON AS ANY VIDEO IS ADDED TO THE PROJECT IT SKIMS NO PROBLEM.

    Could someone else try skimming a project made from only pictures and an iTunes soundtrack and see if they expereince the same?

    Any Ideas?

    Ross :)
