iMovie: The Swiss Army Knife of Digital Video Software Add a Built-in Sound Effect 128 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Click the Audio palette to reveal the Audio tools. Review the list of available sound effects in the top pane of the audio palette. Preview sound effects by clicking them. The sound effect will play. To place an effect in your movie, drag the sound effect from the Audio palette to one of the Audio tracks on the Timeline Viewer. When you move the sound over the track, a yellow line appears on the track where the clip will be placed when you release the mouse button; this line indicates the point at which the sound effect will start playing. In other words, where you place the effect on the track determines where in the movie the effect is heard. When you reach the point at which you want the sound to begin playing, release the mouse button. A blue square will appear on the track on which you placed the sound effect. This square represents the sound effect that you have added to the movie (see Figure 4.26).
