If you own a MacBook and are trying to learn how to use iDVD to create your own DVDs, this guide will help you in the music area. This guide will show you how to add your own music to your projects in iDVD. You will need to begin by opening the project you are working on.
When it comes to the type of music files you can use, you can use just about any type of file format such as MP3, AIFF, WAV, Apple Lossless, and AAC. That should cover just about every type of music file you have on your MacBook. So, let’s start with adding your music to your DVD project you are working on!
Start by locating and clicking the Media button in iDVD. Once you click the Media button, you will see the menu on the right side of your program. Look for the Audio tab and click it. That will load a menu on the right side of your screen. This is where you will need to place your music files that you want to use for the project you are working on.
Adding the Music Files
You are now ready to add your music files. You will have to use the files from your iTunes folder or the GarageBand folder. Open the folder that has the song files you want to use. When it opens, locate and select the music that you want to use. Once you have selected the music, drag it to the iDVD menu that you opened above and drop them.
Playing the Music Files with the DVD
Now you can play the music with the DVD by clicking the Motion button. When you are ready to stop it, click the Motion button again.
Once you have added the music to your iDVD project, you can continue on with your DVD. You can add transition effects and more to create your DVD. Most of the themes already come with music, so if you have a theme with music, you can use it instead of adding your own music unless you just want to use your own.
