    Hi

    I am using iMovie for the first time to compose a DVD of my recent trip to Orlando.

    I have about 150 individual clips imported from my DV cam into iMovie.

    I know I can easily blend the video between each clip using the VideoFX tab - but the sound doesn't blend. Obviously each clip has different audio waveforms - and when they transition, the video is a nice smooth overlay blend - but the audio is a horrible jump. It doesn't sound right.

    I have searched long and hard to find a way to automatically blend the audio between each clip so that it fades the first clip down towards the end, and overlays the next clip slightly over - and fades the start of the audio on that clip up - so the sounds blend much like the video does.

    Anyone?! :)

    Why dont you just do an audio automation? Fade the audio out and fade the next part of the audio in. Cut it up even, so you overlay the audio with the last few seconds of the previous audio clip with a fade out and in.
