Chapter 17. Narration, Music, and Sound > The Two iMovie Soundtracks

17.1. The Two iMovie Soundtracks

The top horizontal band of the Timeline Viewer displays the video component of your movie. It shows tiny thumbnails that help you identify which clips you've placed in which order. For the most part, you won't do much with this strip when you're editing audio; its primary purpose is to show where you are in the movie.

The two skinnier horizontal strips underneath it are your playground for audio clips (Figure 17-1). Both audio tracks are equivalent and each of them can hold sound from any of these sources, which you're free to drag between the two tracks: iTunes tracks, narration, sound effects, sound files like MP3 and AC, music from a CD, and the original audio from your camcorder. This chapter covers all of these sound varieties.
