Chapter 10. Editing Audio > Adding Music from iTunes

Adding Music from iTunes

When the first version of iMovie appeared, the idea of storing one’s music as MP3 files on a hard disk hadn’t yet caught on. Now, however, iTunes can rip and store thousands of songs, all of which are ready to be added to your iMovie project.

To locate songs in your iTunes library:

1.
Switch to the Audio pane. Your iTunes library is listed in the main window (Figure 10.16).

Figure 10.16. You don’t have to leave iMovie to import your digital music—everything in iTunes is available.


2.
Scroll through the list to find the song you want to use, or click the popup menu to choose from your iTunes playlists (Figure 10.17).

Figure 10.17. The popup menu lists your iTunes playlists to help narrow your search.


Or, type a word in the Search field if you’re looking for a particular song or artist name. The list updates as you type (Figure 10.18). Click the Cancel button (with the white X on it) to clear the field and return to the full list.

Figure 10.18. Type the name of a song or artist into the Search field to display only the matches in the list.
