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

17.1. The Two iMovie Soundtracks

Much like traditional film cameras, iMovie separates the audio and video into separate tracks, which you can view and edit independently. In iMovie, you can view the contents of your soundtracks with a single click on the clock icon shown in Figure 17-1.

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.
