    How about... How to add a still 'over video'. basically leaving the audio in place but replacing the video with a still (B roll cut-away style).

    This is actually something I am working on without admitting that I am working on it. The problem is that some people have reported a way to extract audio from a video clip, but I am having a hard time replicating it consistently and I haven't figured out why yet. Stay tuned. If there is a way to do it, I will find it because I want this feature too.

    the "send to iDVD" is definitely a top priority for me. Editing HDV in iMovie06 was always a pain because you never could cut the exact frame, but now this issue seems to be solved. But now there are no chapter-markers (and using Garageband is no solution to me), no audio fading in the middle of clips and no direct send to iDVD. What is Steve thinking? Did he go to some store lately? Seen no dvds at all?

    Hey Anon (2),

    I will have a walk-through on sending movies to iDVD today.

    I wonder what Steve was thinking, too. The more I've been working in iMovie '08, the more I'm coming to the conclusion that they pulled this one out of the oven early. It is a great new recipe, so to speak, but is still a little undercooked.

    hey aaron -- I'm especially anxious to hear what you can figure out about dipping audio levels within clips. seems like a pretty basic feature, no? anyway, thanks for doing this.

    thanks Aaron for the coming-up walk through... I really am puzzled whether to use the Mediabrowser (960x540) or export as QT and then import into iDVD (which is no smooth solution, anyway), especially regarding quality, since now we have got a "professional qual encoding" in the seemingly "dead" to Steve iDVD,

    This is very interesting and good techniques, so far they had worked for me just fine.
