Still Images, Effects, and Transitions

iMovie makes it simple to apply effects and transitions to images that you've added to your project. In fact, there is virtually no difference between working with still or Ken Burns effect image clips and video clips. There are two specific situations, however, when things don't work as you'd expect:

  • Clip Duration— Sometimes the length of a still image clip isn't long enough for the speed you've set for a given transition (a wipe, fade, and so on) to be applied. In this case, iMovie tells you to adjust the speed of the transition, as shown in Figure 27.7. Alternatively you could adjust the duration of your still image (as discussed previously).

    Figure 27.7. Some shorter clips require faster transitions speeds.

  • Convert Still Clip to Regular Clips— Sometimes, when you apply an effect that changes over time—such as “Ghost Trails,” which makes each frame shift slightly to create a “blurring” appearance—iMovie will apply and render the effect, but nothing seems to change in your movie. Nothing appears to happen because nothing is moving in the frame.
