Why Doesn't iMovie Export Sound?

    I've been trying desperately to export an audio clip I arranged in iMovie to Quicktime, but whenever I do, there is never any sound.

    Why is this? What can be done?

    Sincerely Yours,

    All I can think of is to make sure that the check box is checked next to the audio track you have made. (It's to the right of it on the edge of the window.)

    I have thee same problem, the boxes are checked everything seems to be fine.
    I exported other projects but there is one project that doesn´t export the audio track

    What type of sound file is it? Maybe it's not supported by iMovie, try changing it to an Mp3 or other supported file... ( Hope this helped a bit)

    There are so many problems with iMovie 3. I have another one with sound. Sometimes I can't get rid of certain parts of sound in clips. I delete it, it seems as though it's gone, but after an export......it's back!

    Fix it Apple!

    imovie won't export sound to quicktime

    Here's your fix, bud. I had the same problem - my video would export without any audio track to quicktime. The enable audio boxes were all checked and still nothing. It's a wicked little bug, but here's the simple solution. Go ahead and export the video in full dv quality to quicktime. Open a new imovie project and import the video you just sent out to quicktime. Now just put the audio tracks back into it and try exporting the whole thing again...it should work - at least it did for me. good luck
