    im adding an mp3 to a video of myself drumming to the same mp3. problem is to match them up perfectly i either need to edit the mp3 to be about 3 seconds shorter which i dont want to do... or move the the video clip up to start about 3 seconds later than the audio does, make sense? pretty much i dont wanna crop the video clip but just scooch it up about 3 seconds.

    can anyone help me? really appreciate it. cheers, Dominick

    open up the Mp3 in Garageband and chop off the part you dont want.

    Sounds like your audio starts 3 seconds before the video...

    Place a slug in the front of the video. So a picture, or perhaps an introductory title. Then, assuming you are using iMovie 09 or 08, click on the gear on that clip, choose 'Clip Adjustments', and change the duration to 3:00 for three seconds, or 3:15 for 3 seconds & 15 frames which happens to be about 3.5 seconds. The second number can be from 00 to 29.
