The audio ducking controls in iMovie 10 are in the adjustments bar under the sound tab. In the sound tab, there's a slider labeled "Lower volume of other clips" and this slider ranges from around 20% ducking to 100%. More about this in this tutorial video I made: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EChiImCZbno

Carbon Copy Cloner, Super Duper, Disk Utility, and Phoenix. Disk Utility can do binary clones of one disk to another provided the target is as big or bigger than the source. Carbon Copy Cloner and Super Duper are fully featured cloning tools. Phoenix is really an auxiliary tool for the Scannerz package but it can be bought by itself and it can do basic ...

Yes, there's a way to install OS X on the SSD. It's called "install OS X on the Fusion Drive." The Fusion Drive automatically puts the most frequently-used files on the SSD. When there are vital system files that your hard drive needs to access in its every waking moment, there's really no reason why the Fusion Drive would ever demote it to the HDD.


1

Short answer is no. Fusion drive has its own algorithm to determine which individual file goes to which drive, based on frequency of access. It doesn't offer any interface to configure the location of files. Moreover, it doesn't even list out which file belongs to which drive. In fact, the only way to know where a file is, is to read the file while the user ...

A couple of things you can try: Open the folder in Finder - click on the Actions button- select Show View Options - put a check next to Show icon preview. If it's checked, uncheck it, close the window, open it back up and check it again Head for your home folder - Library / Preferences - move the com.apple.finder.plist file to the desktop - log out and ...

I would highly recommend a small program called SuperDuper, which I use all the time. The problem with TimeMachine, is that it does incremental backups and eats alot of disk space. And you can't boot into your TimeMachine backups. So if something goes wrong with your dual boot system, TimeMachine is useless, because you need a system to boot into. They are ...

You can create a time Time Machine backup from the command line with tmutil, the Time Machine utility. You can set a destination then order a manual backup. To set the Time Machine backup volume: sudo tmutil setdestination /Volumes/MyBackup Then start the backup: tmutil startbackup --auto The --auto flag will try to treat it as an ordinary time ...

You should be able to do it from the terminal with ffmpeg's overlay filter ... download prebuilt binaries or install with Homebrew if you don't have it already and the command would look something like this: ffmpeg -i video.mp4 -i watermark.png -filter_complex 'overlay=10:10' outputname.mp4 That'll place watermark.png 10px in and 10px down from the top ...

I think you can open your VM in Parallels. Parallels has a feature that lets you boot your VM in Bootcamp. I have not done this myself; you'll have to do further research to verify.

Simply click the folder, then click the header name, background goes white. Another click will change to an insert point [standard text caret], for finer editing

I'd say it's not a good choice. Apart form the energy usage there might be some compatibility issues (since it's an ad-hoc network) and you are quite a few options short (no port-forwarding for example). If budget is an issue, get a cheap router, it will likely still perform better than using the Mac as a router.

Short answer: With your headphones plugged in, go to Preferences > Sound, and check the balance between your L and R channels. Long answer: I read that some people did not hear anything through their headphones and had solved the issue by unchecking the "mute" option under the sound section. Mine was already unchecked. The balance was fine too, but my ...

For permanent and full screen increase in fonts ect use System Preferences. Select Display, now hold the "alt" key and click on scaled. Here I would choose the 1024x640 and if it is to large choose next one.


1

The simplest way is the Zoom from Accessibility, instead of the annoying fullscreen mode you can do picture to picture that isn’t so annoying. To increase the everything you’ll have to change the resolution as @denisinla mentioned. That’s has the draw-back of not looking so good. Otherwise you’ll have to do increase size app by app. Most apps now have zoom ...

How about increasing your screen resolution by adjusting it in System Preferences > Displays > Scaled > Adjust for Larger Text - More Space

Use: System Preferences -> Accessibility -> Zoom More details here

I see what you are saying. If you select a picture file in Finder and Copy, then Paste into an Outlook message, you get text of the full path starting with "file://". That is because copying in Finder does not examine the contents of the file. It examines only the file handle and copies that path. If you want to copy the contents of a file, whether it is a ...

In theory, you can open the images in preview and copy them. It works when pasting into a text editor, but probably won't work with your webmail. It's a matter of the website (your webmail), not your Mac. Perhaps try drag-and-drop if that is supported.

This fixes it (after changing apache to run as the user who has node or by giving access to _www). putenv('PATH=' . getenv('PATH') . ':/usr/local/bin');

There's a kind of easy way to solve this as I found out recently. All it involves is using the same credit/debit card details on both iTunes accounts. Yes, a little bit of a nuisance and there's no logic at all as why it would be this way but it solved it for me with my Macbook that I share with my daughter. 2 separate Apple ID's and 2 separate iTunes match ...

Will you even be able to fit the 15" MacBook Pro's battery into the 13" MacBook? Messing with power like this only result in broken things. I highly recommend to get a new battery from Apple if it's still available. Or perhaps from a reliable third party.

If you want to make a faithful copy of the filesystem contents, avoid using cp. Instead, use the ditto(1) command, which preserves hard links, file permissions, resource forks, and HFS metadata. Unlike cp, ditto is meant to preserve as much of that information as possible by default. It's just a matter of running sudo ditto src dest.

TrueCrypt works perfectly fine with SSD, I'm not sure where you got the idea that it does not. There are more options, VeraCrypt (the new truecrypt) and DiskCryptor which is a bit faster than most for OS encryption

You forgot to make an exclude-files list, and are likely copying things that can't / shouldn't be copied, including bottomless files like /dev/random. While cp can do the job, there are better tools. Rsync is one, Carbon Copy Cloner or SuperDuper is another. To use a kitchen analogy, you are using a knife to open a can. Rsync is a can opener, Carbon Copy ...

Use rsync for this purpose since cp cannot faithfully reproduce all the files that exist on OS X. The benefits of rsync over ditto and cp are: interrupted transfers can restart easily with very little cost. restarts even resume part way through a large file. file exclusion and --dry-run allow easy testing and iterative thinning. The simplest way to use ...

Run in Terminal: sysctl hw.cpu64bit_capable If it gives 1, it means your computer has 64-bit architecture. Or use arch command which could return either i386 (32-bit Intel) or x86_64 (64-bit Intel).

Then go back to your Mac; now you can ...

Open the Messages app on your Mac and choose Messages menu > Preferences. Click on the Accounts tab, then click on your Apple ID on the left. Choose Sign Out on the right. Note that by doing this, you can no longer send iMessages from your Mac.

Go to messages (if you can't find it anywhere just hit command+space bar and search for messages). When messages opens up hit Messages again. It's a the top of the left of your screen next to the Apple logo. Hit preferences, and hit Accounts. You should see that you are signed in. Just hit your account and hit sign out. That should work.

If the files you have issues with are self-created simple files like the text file you depicted, you can run a Terminal command on those files to clear out specific or all extended attributes.
