Question

Narration blocked

I created a photo/video project and had dictated half of the narration when iMovie 11 refused to take any more narration. Apple told me there was probably a flaw in the program and had no solution other my starting over.

But I was wondering if anyone knew of a way I could transfer all the photo/video portion to a new project so that I didn't have to redo that part of the project.

I am working on an iMac, snow leopard, and iMovie 11.

Any help is appreciated.

Here's a common workaround I used

This sort of issue occurs in many systems so I narrate to a nice audio recorder then I can use those audio clips to add to the tracks in the editors.

I am not offering to write a tutorial but to share a common solution I use.

thanks

that's a good idea...too bad I can't save all the photos/videos I have...I don't mind adding the new narration, but redoing the pictures is a lot of trouble...thanks for your suggestion

I'm a little confused.

Since the pictures are done, why isn't adding a sound track an option here?

explanation of problem

I completed half of the narration and then the program, then iMovie 11, blocked me from adding more. I could go back to the first half and add or change narration there, but could not add any from one point on. Apple couldn't explain or fix the program, other than saying there must have been a flaw...their only solution: start over.

Just for clarity.

I never add narration in the usual apps. We put them into "tracks" and then add these audio tracks to the production. I'm guessing here that's why I never see this issue.

If the software is limited in some way, you either find a workaround or use other software.
