Photo to Movie shows missing photos in the timeline. What should I do?

Photo to Movie stores references to your files, not copies. So if you move the document or photos or music, Photo to Movie can have trouble finding the original photos and music.

The best way to handle things is to store your photos and music in the same folder as your Photo to Movie document. Then when you move the document/photos/music, Photo to Movie will be able to find your photos easily.

Also, Photo to Movie 4.0.4 (Mac OS X) or later does a much better job of tracking your photos. It is not perfect, however, and you may still find yourself with missing photos if you move your document to another machine.

But sometimes, Photo to Movie may report one or more of your photos or songs as missing when you open the document at a later date.

If this happens, you can manually tell Photo to Movie where one of the photos is located. To do this, select one of the missing photos in the timeline. Then choose the menu item Photo > Replace Missing Photo... and then locate the photo by hand. Many times, Photo to Movie will be able to find the rest of the photos automatically. If it can't, you may have to manually locate more photos in order for Photo to Movie to find them.
