    Using iMovie and iTunes to create Mp3s from your movies

    Easy. In iMovie just export it as Quicktime under Export settings, select AIFF. Once you have that file ready, go into iTunes and import it in. Next go to the Preferences setting under importing and select MP3 and the quality setting then select the file you imported and control click the file. Select the menu choice to convert it to mp3. Now you can just drag the resulting file to the desktop or leave it in iTunes.

    Perhaps in future versions of iMovie, they will make the process of round triping sound back to iTunes more integrated.

    For some reason Itunes wont import the AIff- it won't let me choose it. I can drag the AIFF file into Itunes and listen to it that way. Meanwhile, its a 409 min clip. Is there a way in itunes to cut clips into different clips. So the first 4 min is song #1 the next is song #2-- etc.. Or is that only available in QT pro?

    "Add to Library" instead of Import

    Control click the file and "Open With" and select iTunes. Or try "Add to Library" from the File menu. You are right about the Import command. I have no idea what it does. I always think "Import" but then I see "Add to Library" and try that and it understands AIFF files and MP3 files and so forth. To cut clips, use iMovie if you don't have Quicktime Pro. Create separate clips and export each one individually.
