Q:"I have been using iMovie for a while, and 'Split Clip' is the most regularly used feature. However, now I want to join two clips together so that I can add a smooth Ken Burns effect that will make the video clips combined seamlessly. I did it in iMovie, but the 'Join Clips' icon is greyed out. Why? What am I missing? Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated." --- PBA user from Apple Community
