    Just a quick question, I'm putting together a video in iMovie and have been having issues with the audio. I'm about halfway through editing and up until now when I dragged an MP3 file across which was cut to a certain length, that exact length showed up in the iMovie window and in my video.

    Now, I have a 2 minute long MP3 which I need to put into the video, however no matter what I try whenever I drag it across the duration is only 14 seconds. Every other program opens it and plays the full two minutes length, but no matter what iMovie only recognises it as being 14 seconds long. :confused:

    Who knew video editing could be so darn stressful...

    How long is your Project, and where in the Project are you dropping the mp3?
