    So I made a video of my friend seeing how many pushups he can do for some competition thing. Anyway, I want to add a counter in iMovie, so that somewhere on the screen, it shows how many he has done, and keeps counting. How do I do this?

    The easiest way to do this is to add a title graphic to each pushup section, and just increment that manually. How many pushups are we talking about?

    For a one-time thing like this I'd just use title graphics.

    i found a way. it requires iMovie HD (free download on apple's website: http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/imovieHD6.html)

    what i found costs money though. but you can download a free version that plasters a big "unregistered" across your video. anyways, you can give it a try. heres the link: http://www.imovieplugins.com/plugs/timer.html

    BTW, it says PPC only. I tried it with my Intel MacBook with Leopard, and it worked fine.

    Yeah, but it is only $7.50 to remove that problem. Just depends on what it worth to you for that particular project I suppose!
