Miro would do it I presume?
On a sort of related note; why do pictures look so fugly when you import them into iMovie?
A colleague of mine is having a bit of a 'mare with iMovie, and not being a Mac user I don't really know how to help him.
He has a video and simply wishes to overlay a PNG or JPG image on top of it in the top corner. However, when he imports a PNG it just displays as a mess of what could only be described as random black smudges and totally messes the image up. I found this potential fix for the problem but it doesn't work.
Also, when trying to import a JPG the image will display properly, but there are massive black areas above and below it, as if it's not being cropped properly.
If anyone who uses iMovie knows how to do such a seemingly simple thing your help would be much appreciated. Thanks.
Tried renaming the extension to m4v?
The problem occurs within the program while creating the movie. I assume the problem will carry over to the exported movie regardless of it's file type.
