    For the life of me I cannot split a clip in iMovie. I select and swipe and nothing happens. I am not sure if the hardware is screwed up but it's soo frustrating.

    Also, when I exported what I did have, iPhoto was not able to import onto my computer.

    Anyone else having trouble with this? Or can try and help? Thanks in advance.

    It took me a few tries but I think I figured out the secret.

    Place the playhead where you want it and select the clip so it's outlined with the handles.

    Instead of just swiping down the playhead line, tap and hold at the top of that line for a split second before a swiping down. If you hold it for too long, the clip will pop out of the timeline as if you're moving or deleting it - so just hold for an instant then swipe.

    You'll know when it worked, the clip will be split with a blank transition in between.
