lets clear the air

My previous thread asking how to import a mp4 into FCP 5 was locked after an insinuation that I might use this info to commit copyright infringement.

I have no intention of infringing or misusing the music. I was curious if such an import was possible.

I have received invaluable insight and help from this group over the last 5 years.
I have no intention of sullying these waters.

With regards to any audio file, mp3, AAC etc....you can burn a CD. This creates an AIFF which an be brought right into FCP.

If you are talking about the MPEG-4 movies, then I have no idea.

gary, the workaround that has discusses how to do this without burning a CD or wasting media has already been published several times. a search will yield it up...sorry, boyd, i don't want to offend you or DVinfo, but my environmental consciousness balks at burning a piece of media unnecessarily that then ends up in the trash. you can also e-mail me, gary, if you are feeling lazy....

Exporting a track to CD (or CD-RW) is not illegal and is not "circumventing the DRM". It's a feature that Apple included in the iTunes software with the permission of the record companies. The DRM specifically allows you to make a certain number of copies to CD. to paraphrase Microsoft "it's a FEATURE, not a hack."

I'm not sure if iMovie still supports this with protected iTunes songs, but this is a trick that you can do.

Create a new project, and place the MP4 into the audio track.

Then using the share/export command---export the movie with just AIFF only.

The AIFF file can then be used in your project.
