I'm helping a friend who has iMovie '11.  We took 20 still images and put them into a new iMovie project.  We added sound. (The tune is in iTunes and appears listed in the iMovie window.)


We adjusted timing of images and transitions.  It ran perfectly.  We closed iMovie and opened it a short time later to listen again.  Although the green sound background is present and the tune is listed at the top of the menu, it is not heard.


I checked the Help menu.  It mentioned something about checking a clock to see if the sound had been muted.  We couldn't find any clock icon.


Any ideas of what is going wrong?

    Is there a small yellow triangle with an exclamation symbol inside? If you see that it means that your audio isn't where imovie expects it and can't find it. If you control click the yellow triangle you might see an option to reconnect it to the audio file.
