    I currently use iMovie 7.1.4 on my Mac OS X 10.5.6. :apple:

    I was using iMovie to make a video, but I couldn't find how to control the time in which transitions pass by. It looks like 0.4 seconds is the default time for each one, but how do you change it to... say, 2 seconds? And yes, the video before and after the 0.4 transition is not longer than it.

    So I'm basically asking: How do you control the speed of a transition in iMovie 7.1.4? :confused:

    Help would be appreciated. :D Thank you.

    after you've dragged your transition to your project, you can right click on it and select "set duration".. then a window will pop up where you can set the transition time.. either for this transition or for all transitions in the project

    hope this makes sense

    This can be very long-winded if you're creating a lot of imovies with the same transition time; how would one go about changing the default transition time? Can't see anything under preferences yet
