Recording Audio

The iMovie application gives you two options when it comes time to use audio—import existing files or record directly into iMovie. When you record audio, remember that these are typically large files, so you'll want a lot of free hard drive space to hold the file. Recording audio typically means you're doing something like a voice-over narration. For example, you might have a video of a walk through the zoo, and you want to give your audience your feelings and impressions as you move through the zoo. The good news is that iMovie lets you preview the video portion of the movie as you do your narration.

Record Audio

Open an iMovie project.

Click the Timeline Viewer button.

Drag the Playhead to the point in the movie where you want to add the audio insert.

Click the Audio tab.

Click the Record/Stop button to start the audio insert.

IMPORTANT If this is a voice-over narration, the Preview window shows you the movie as you talk. And, if you want to move a clip in precise measurements, select the clip on the Timeline, and then use the left and right arrow keys to nudge the clip.

Click the Record/Stop button to end the audio insert.

The audio file appears on the Timeline.

Click the File menu, and then click Save Project.
