JHymn didn't work at all. It tried to contact the Music Store, to no avail. Could not strip the M4P file. The trick in iMovie worked though.

Ahhh... edited post: after importing the aif file into fcp there appeared to be no sound in the file. Nothing. Also quicktime cannot play the aif output from iMovie.... to be continued..

Make sure you use "Place at Playhead" in iMovie to actually put the music in the timeline. If you try to drag it into the timeline, it looks like something happened, but nothing really did.

iMovie generated an "aif" file (with the name of the project as filename). I'm sure I did "place at Playhead". Will try again though.

One other thing - newer versions of iMovie insist that there is video in the timeline before it will Export/Share. It does warn you when you try to Share without the video. You didn't mention seeing this warning but I wanted to mention this requirement.

When you do the Place at Playhead, the song gets converted before you see it in the timeline. There is a progress dialog shown during that process. If you don't see it, then no conversion is taking place.

After Place at Playhead, does the song play from the timeline? If not, then that's another clue that no conversion is occurring.


Mike.
