    Hi all.

    I've got iMovie 09' and I was wondering -

    Is it possible to make a video clip OR photo, go from colour to black and white?

    Like, while the photo or video clip is playing in iMovie, it starts off in colour then by the end of the photo or video it has turned to black and white (or another effect like sepia or whatever)

    Thanks for your help :)

    In your Project, select the clip.On the lefthand side click on the the gearwheel icon which opens the editing menu. Click on Clip Adjustments to open the Inspector. Make sure that the Clip tab is selected and click on the Video Effect bar. You can select Black and White from there. The clip doesn't change clour, but it will be black and white in the preview pane. You can do the same for photos.

    I don't think that you can fade it in and out though, but you can duplicate the clip and use a transition to give that effect.
