iMovie to create presentations


Hi All,

I tried to make a teacher training video from Keynote slides that I exported as JPEGs to iMovie, then created video and audio clips. I wanted to make the movie with me speaking generally in video clips, and then going to the Keynote slides with a voice-over. My problem is that the sound from the audio clips spills over into my video clips, and my slide images don't last long enough. I have read a lot online, but nothing seems to address what I need help with. HELP

Not sure if this answers your issue but what I do when combining Keynote slides with voice into a movie is to record my voice over on each Keynote slide first, and then export the whole Keynote to a movie. That way the “slide” plays as long as the voice.

If in iMovie what you want to record is longer than a video clip you have, you can always splice the video clip and put in a still picture to lengthen the timing on the movie. The voice audio you record will then run under the movie and added still clips.

Hope this makes sense.

I had never thought about recording into keynote. I’ve always created the slides in keynote and narrate in iMovie. I’m going to have to try that out.
