How can I transfer a DVD track into a .mp3 file?
What is an app to do it?
Yes, I would drag the video file into Garage Band, and then just delete the video track. That is how I got a soundtrack from a movie that never had a soundtrack actually released for it. It works great.
A song from a DVD to mp3?
Here is the only way I think you can do it. Use handbreak to rip it onto your mac and then save as a video vile.
Use MPEGstreamclip to save it as audio only.
Crop as desired in garageband.
Jmann beat me to it! With a better idea!
Sorry guys but I am a newbie one in Mac world.
Can I put a DVD (concert) in Garage Band?
How can I get the soundtracks in mP3 using it?
Google search for software called handbreak. It converts DVD files to video files you can save on your computer.
Then when it has finished, open garage band and drag the video file handbreak made for you into a new garage band project.
You will see a video track and an audio track. Delete the video track.
Click export as mp3!
I'll try it!
Thank you so much!
I used handbreak to put DVD into my Mac (.m4v).
But Garage Band does not open it.
How can I dot it?
Search up an application called MPEGstreamclip, and open the video file in there.
Then click file> Export Audio.
This should work.
I had problems using handbreake (converting DVD into video file). No audio there. Any special config?
Oh really? Thats very strange... um...
I'll look into it, but I have no ideas...
Try downloading Perian, it usually fixes any audio/video problems, especially with Quicktime.
I used handbreak to convert DVD into a video file.
After it I used MPEGstreamclip to export as audio file.
Now i have a .m4a file (audio). But how I can divide it in tracks? I just have the entire file (concert).
Just separate the track in garage band to your liking.
I tried it in GarageBand.
I chose 'open an existing project' but a .m4a file is not allowed to be opened!
It's NOT an exisiting project, this is more a a drag-n-drop kinda deal.
What jMann means is make a new project, and simply drag the file into the timeline of garageband. It should make a new track, with the audio file.
Then put the cursor over the spot you want to chop, and press commandT to cut it. Move to the next cut, commandT...etc
I am trying to drag-n-drop the file into GarageBand...but it is not working. The file doesn't go there!
Can you play the file in quicktime?
If so, go into garageband, press in the menubar "track" > "new track" > and make sure you choose real instrument.
Now try to drag the file directly onto that track.
If all else fails, try sending the file to me and Ill see whats wrong.
Thank you for your attention.
I'll try it when I get home tonight and let you know!
Yes, I play the file (.m4a) in QuickTime.
When I open GarageBand and go to menubar 'track' the option 'new track' is not available for me. None option in menubar 'track' is available for me.
I think the file is so large (160MB), no?
Okay so open garageband, YOu should get this screen.
If you get a project window, just close it and it will come up.
Click create new music project.This screen will pop up
Name it, put it in a folder and click create.
When the project window opens, just drag the .m4a file into the project window.
Then find the places you want to chop, move the cursor over it and press commandT
And export the file!
Just a random question. How does everyone do those cool red arrows with drop shadows? I tried looking in cs3 and didn't see a nice arrow to use.
Haha no Cs3 here.. Its all done in preview! Hold down the annotations button.
Hmm all the annotation options are greyed out.
Do you have an image open? lol
