i have made my first time-lapse video using my go pro on iMovie 11 on my iMac and i am having a issue with the playback. Basically the time-lapse is set to have a 0.1 second clip but this seems to slow and the video seems choppy?? i have tried to set it to 0.05 seconds but it defaults to 0.1.

i watched a youtube video doing step by step and he managed to set his to 0.05 in iMovie, am i doing something wrong? the video is below so you know what i am talking about

What is the frame rate? and did you have your GoPro set to take a picture every 2 seconds or every 5? for fast motion like driving every 2 seconds is best.

iMovie isn't the best for assembling time laps movies. iStopMotion is far better, but it's a little pricey at $50.

Another issue I noticed is your audio. It's recorded way too high. You should aim for around -6dB with peaks around -3dB. Your's is peaking around +2dB. I hate it when I start videos and they blast my speakers. Lower the audio by -5dB and it will be just about right. The other thing is to add a little note like [Explicit] in the link so we know there's bad language. Combing too-high audio with bad language with work makes for awkward looks :)
