Drag and drop the music on the frame of video where you want the music to start.
See this Tutorial for a good overview.
Use the option that they say is good for sound effects and voiceovers.
Is there a way to pick out a clip in a song... i.e. say I have a 1min song. I want to use it from starting 30seconds into the song to 45seconds. Is there an easy way....
Currently I highlight the song.... play it to the begining of where I want it, then cut it and delete that begining part..... seems very tedious and not precise..... is there an easier way?
… Is there a way to see the time marks on song? …
cmd-Y shows the actual playhead position.
consider Garageband, to prepare audio before usage in iMovie; it has better/more features, would allow remixing, layering tracks, applying elaborated audio-effects etc etc .....
Karsten... thanks! I wish I was that sophisticated to use GB
AM.... I like the draging the borders, but only thing is I don't know where to stop. I often will preview the music in itunes and then I know for example, I want to start a song at 35 seconds into a song on a clip.... but then when I slide the ends, I don't know or can't see where 35 seconds is (so it is very tedious trial/error and I am sure it is me not knowing tricks). So I'll have to try Karsten's cmd-Y to see if that provides details of the timing on the song(when I get home).
Thanks again guys.
