    I created a promotional "vid" if you could call it that akin to the bumps on adult swim, as part of the promo campaign for an EP release. If your not familar with Adult Swim or their bumps here's an example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DrUQ-AZFZkg I did a slideshow using preview, and I am very please with my results. However I want to know how this would be done in iMovie with non moving text. I played around with it on my own, and noticed iMovie was doing things like zooming in and out on the text, panning, etc....I don't want the text to move at all for the duration of the video.

    Thanks,

    Also I'm using iMovie 09

    What you need is a program called MOTION which just got released on the Mac App store.

    These are just simple text titles. You should be able to turn off the motion settings in iMovie.

    Does that have anything to do with Ken Burns effect? I'm still learning iMovie through some video tutorials I bought but from what you are describing, it sounds like what the KB effect does (panning, zooming on pictures).

    I don't think you need $50 Motion for this.

    edit: if that doesn't work, you probably could get away with using Keynote and then importing to iMovie.

    I thought that might have been it, but then again I don't think I had that effect enabled unless its placed on pictures automatically. I haven't looked into motion yet. Where would I find keynote on the mac?

    You'll find Keynote either as part of iWorks at a reseller or as single app on the App Store.

    It'll be the perfect tool for your endeavor. You'll even be able to export your presentation to a .mov file.
    Ever used Power Point? If yes, then you should be able to get started with Keynote pretty quick (and amazed how simple it is to get some amazing presentation out with it).

    As mentioned above, it's on the Mac App Store. $20 but worth more than that, in my opinion.

    Whenever you get your project done, post a link here I'd be interested to see how it turns out. Good luck!
