    The Ken Burns effect function buttons in iMovie for my iPhone 4 seem to be backwards. When I double tap a photo at the beginning of the clip, the only buttons I can click are the End and Done buttons. And when I am at the end of the photo clip, I can only click the Start and End buttons. So when I get done making my picture adjustments the effect comes out backwards of how I wanted them. Seems as if the end button is actually the Start button and the Start button is actually the End button.

    Anyone else having this issue?

    In the "How do I adjust photos in my movie" question, there is a picture of the Ken Burns editor. It shows what I see in iMovie. Notice how the timeline is at the end of the clip, yet the editor shows the Start button available and the end button unavailable. If I move the timeline to the start of the clip, then the Start button is not available. This makes no sense to me. If I am at the start of the clip then start should be available and if I am at the end of the clip then End should be available. Why is it backwards?

    I think I figured it out and feel stupid in the process.

    While in the Ken Burns editor clicking the Start or End buttons takes me to that place on the clip. I had assumed that I was supposed to tell the editor where I was on the clip by clicking one those buttons, which now I know I don't have to. So for instance when I am at the end of the clip and bring up the editor the End button is supposed to be grayed out. And if I want to go to the beginning of the clip, all I have to do is press the Start button.
