    Is there any way to adjust audio levels in a clip, in a way that allows you to slowly lower the volume in the middle then raise it back up? This is very frustrating to me that I can't find any way to do this

    I haven't touched iMovie since version 6 (so this may have changed), but at least in that version, you would go to to View menu, choose "Show Clip Volume Levels" and a horizontal line would appear on your audio track(s).

    Now, click anywhere on the horizontal line and a "adjustment point" will be created (also known as a "keyframe" in professional NLEs). You can drag this point up and down to achieve the desired level. If you want to fade the audio back up, you'll want to create another "adjustment point" further down the track. You can also move the adjustment points around by dragging them to fine tune your fades.

    Does that help?

    BTW, in the future, you'd generally get more responses to questions like this in the Digital Video Forum.
