    Exactly. Forget about doing that in Imaginate. Just use Imaginate to create the video. Create one IVP file per image. Not audio.

    Then drop your 30 IVP files into EDIUS timeline. Then you adjust each IVP file individually ... VERY flexible.

    Still trying

    I have 30 photos in a project. The first one is 1.2 seconds, second is 2.3, next is 5, next is .8 seconds, etc. I got those times by syncing to music. How can I do that after bringing it into Edius?

    When you drop an IVP file into EDIUS timeline, you can make that IVP file as short or as long as you want ... so if your audio was 6.976 seconds, you can do that precisely with EDIUS. Just drag the handle of the IVP file right or left (to lengthen or shorten the IVP) and you can position it exactly where you want it. Try it!

    Imaginate Audio Sync

    Thanks for the quick replies. We seem to be talking in circles. If the audio in Imaginate studders, how can I sync to that? If I create the IVP with no audio, I have nothing to sync to? I am manually matching the transitions to the music beat which means each photo has it's own duration. Are you telling me about a trick I don't know of? Can I change image durations individually with the IVP in Edius?

    sync in imaginate
    mute the imaginate audio and drop the same audio on the A1 or A2 track in Edius .
    Done.
    Really simple

    but to be honest most of us don't use audio in Imaginate.
    Btw do you have the latest patch installed? What is the verison number?

    Why are you doing audio in Imaginate in the first place? Why can't you just create the IVP files (sans audio) - load up EDIUS 5 under VISTA 64, and drop the IVP files into timeline. You can always fix your audio in EDIUS anyway - a MUCH better application to begin with.

    The alternative to Imaginate is to use full blown tools (Adobe After Effects) which is sometimes way overkill to what Imaginate does for a project.

    Imaginat Audio

    We use the audio in Imaginate, though temporarily, to sync pictures transitions to the music. The final music is done in Edius and mixed with some video. My problem is that in Vista x64, the Imaginate audio skips terribly. I've tried running it in XP compatibility mode with the same result. This is not a problem on our XP machine. This happens with only stills being shown in Imaginate so it does not seem to be taxing the machine.

    Is there another picture application out there to replace Imaginate?

    Vista x64, 4 gigs RAM, 1.5 tb video drive (3 500 gig drives in RAID 0), 512 meg Radeon video card, on board audio. Edius 5 with updates.

    I will Third That!!! and Large Hi rez pics in a HD project are excellent. IMAGINATE is a fab little app - Why has it been dropped? I ask, although still very much available in the UK!

    And an an upgrade price break for edius users;-)

    I agree with Anton. I never do any of the audio work in Imaginate. So much better control in Edius.

    I have a much simpler solution

    1. delete the audio in Imaginate

    2. don't render out at all, simply save the IVT

    3. add your audio clip to Edius audio track

    4. load the IVT to bin

    5. drag it to timeline and stretch it to length of audio clip

    6. smile

    Imaginate Audio Problem

    I know Imaginate is no longer supported but I still use it with Edius Pro 4.61. The problem, I created a montage with 56 photos added a sound track to match the length of the photos and used one transition for all of the pics. I rendered it out using the Canopus avi codec audio 48. When played back from the timeline or even Windows media player the audio drops about one second before the montage ends. I re did the project and got the same results. Thanks in advance for any help.
Working...
