Creating a Sound Track from a Sound File

You can create a QuickTime sound track from an existing sound file in another audio format by opening it in QuickTime Player. Most audio files—including AIFF/AIFC, MP3, Sound Designer 2, WAV, and µLaw (au) files—open directly in QuickTime Player. Macintosh System 7 sound files need to be imported, however.

To create a sound track from a sound file (in most sound formats):

1.
From the File menu, choose Open Movie (Figure 13.4) or Import.

Figure 13.4. You open most sound files as you would any QuickTime movie.


The Open dialog box appears.

2.
Select the sound file, and click the Convert button (Mac OS 9 or Windows; Figure 13.5) or the Open button (Mac OS X).

Figure 13.5. When you select the file, the Open button turns into the Convert button, in Mac OS 9 and Windows.


If you are a Windows user, you may need to set the Files of Type pop-up menu to Audio Files to see the audio file.

A new movie window without an image appears (Figure 13.6).
