I am also in need of help with iMovie and hope the original poster doesn't mind if I ask here.
I have started making a movie with pictures instead of video clips. When I double tap the clip all I get is the Ken Burns effect editing screen and not the Clip Settings screen. Is there a way to put a title on an opening picture?
Thanks danpass, some helpful tips in your video...especially making a custom transition from a photo. I had found it frustrating that I couldn't add text to photo transitions, this is a nice workaround.
