    I'm a complete video n00b, please help!

    I've been sent a showreel on DVD, which I need to convert to flash to add to a website but the video contains out-of-date contact details as a caption towards the end of the clip. It's just white text on a black background. I need to remove this info but there's a soundtrack playing so I can't just crop the video at that point.

    Is there some way I can just overlay a black screen or something to hide the contact info without affecting the soundtrack? Is this possible in iMovie? I've never used it before!

    thanks :eek:

    Well, first you'd have to rip the DVD and convert it to a format that iMovie can use.

    Assuming you can do that, the easiest thing would be to just use still pic of a solid black background and lay it over the black clip that has the caption.

    Move the little triangles back 'n' forth and then wiggle your blobs about, job's a good'n :)
