Chapter 3. iMovie > To import an audio track from anywhere on your computer

To import an audio track from anywhere on your computer

You might have audio files in various formats stored on your Mac, but not in iTunes, and therefore not accessible from the Audio Pane. You can import audio files from anywhere on your computer straight into an audio track.

1.
From the File menu, choose “Import….”

2.
In the Open dialog box that drops down from iMovie's title bar, locate an audio file that is stored on your computer. Select it, then click “Open.” The entire audio file is placed in the lower audio track.

If a music file name is dimmed in the Open dialog box, you can't use it in the movie because its format is one that iMovie doesn't support. Music must be in a format that works with QuickTime.

The most common formats to work with are AIFF (Audio Interchange File Format) and MP3. You can also import WAV (Waveform, a Microsoft/IBM audio format) and AAC (Advanced Audio Coding) files.
