Rob Griffiths follows up an earlier post with more details on getting iMovie HD 6 to embed date/time information in a time-lapse movie. Turns out that you need to tweak a preference using Terminal.
Bingo! This hidden feature will let you put time and date stamps on iMovie time lapse projects created with DV cameras. Here’s what you need to do.
- Quit iMovie if it’s running.
- Launch Terminal, in /Applications -> Utilities, and enter the command:
defaults write com.apple.iMovie allowDVwithSG -bool yes
You only need to do this one time.
- Launch iMovie with your DV camera connected. Click the triangle next to the camera icon and choose Time Lapse.
