Low volume when importing from iTunes

The volume level is fine when previewing in iMovie06 Media/Audio. After clicking "place at playhead", the imported audio track has very low volume.
I tried other suggestions in this forum, including raising audio track level to 150%, and saving to CD and re-importing to iTunes as AIFF (which seemed to help a little), but still the volume level of the imported audio in iMovie is still way too low. This is originally a midi file my son created. It is not purchased or protected content. It imported into iTunes fine and sounds fine there. Had the same problem with a "jaws" audio clip downloaded free online. Fine in iTunes, barely audible after importing into iMovie.
Experimenting, I made a brand new movie and only imported the audio clip, and the volume level was fine. So, it has something to do with the movie I'm working on.
Help! I already blew a few hours on this issue and now am up against a deadline.

Hi
two ways
a) Use an audio-editor like Audacity (freeware) and increase Your .aiff files
b) You noticed that You can get the audio clip in to iMovie and amplify it to 150%
• Copy this audio-clip. Paste it ontop of the first one = 300% amplified audio
Do this as many times as You need it (until it gets audio distorsion)
Yours Bengt W

  • Garageband Crashes when importing from iTunes

    Garageband 08 - up to date
    ITunes - 8.1.1 (10 - up to date - library is held on an Airport Disk
    White MacBook 80GB
    Tiger
    New problem just started occurring in Garageband. When you try to import a track from iTunes (via the media library screen in garageband, ie drag and drop), Garageband just quits back to the desktop. (Asks if you want to reopen, try again etc, but no effect).
    All other functions of Garageband appear to work fine - including exporting TO ITunes, and also importing photos through media library or garageband samples.
    Have tried repairing file permissions in disk utilities, and deleting the GB preferences file (as advised in Apple Shop) but no effect.
    This worked fine until a few days ago, and had been done hundreds of times with no problems.
    Any ideas?

    Just to say that I'm having the same problem. The iTunes version (8.1.1) came in more recently than the last update on GB. I'm trying to think if there have been any general OS X updates recently, but I'm not sure.
    The workaround is fine, but if anyone hears about a patch so that it works normally, I'd be happy to know.

  • Low quality when importing from camcorder

    Hello,
    I have an older camcorder (Sony TRV260, Digital8), and I noticed that when I import the footage into iMovie the quality is lower than when I watch it on my TV directly from the camera.
    Initially I thought that it's because the resolution of my iMac is higher, but even when I burn it on DVD it looks bad, almost pixelated.
    Are there any settings that I need to adjust?
    Any help is much appreciated. I have a whole bunch of tapes that I kept hoping that, once I get my iMac I will be able to edit and put them on DVD. Now I am really-really frustrated.
    What needs to be done?
    Many thanks in advance for your help.
    Laurentiu

    I got iMovie 06 but, when I tried to install it said that I should have iLife 08 installed.
    That's because you have iMovie 6.0.4 you want 6.0 > 6.0.3 ONLY 6.0.4 looks for iLife '08.
    You can get iMovie 06 in a number of ways. You cannot download it FROM APPLE any longer (it was free for a time). You can also find iMovie 06 on the iLife 06 install disc. You can buy iLife 06 on Amazon or eBay. WELL WORTH EVERY PENNY!
    iMovie 6.0.4 requires that iLife 08 is already installed. iMovie 6.0 thru iMovie 6.0.3 has no such requirement. There are no known functional differences between 6.0.3 and 6.0.4. If you install iMovie 06 from the iLife 06 disk it will probably be version 6.0 or 6.01. However you can update the software to 6.0.3 from Apple's Web site.

    If you want to have both iMovie 06 and iLife 09 (and most do) just install iMovie 06 first, then iLife 09. You are now UN-STOPPABLE!
    Also when you install iLife 08 or 09, iMovie 06 is not removed from the computer. Previous editions of iMovie were always un-installed when "upgrading" in the past. Apple leaves iMovie 06 on your system, because they want you to have it. iMovie 06 works great with iDVD 09.

  • Popping sounds in FCP when importing from itunes

    I'm trying to use a piece of music dwonloaded from itunes. listening ot the piece on itunes there are no "pops" or crackle sounds. Once imported to FCP and incerted inot my track it has annoying pops, suttle but they are there. How can I fix this?

    Music purchased through iTunes won't work in FCP. Because of rights issues.  You need to get the rights to use the music in certain projects.  While your project might not be for broadcast, or displaying on the web, Apple assumes it is. 
    You cannot just use any old music you want in projects you put up on the web and on TV. You need to get the rights to it.  YouTube will even pull your video down if it finds popular music and detects rights issues. If this is a family video not aimed at the web, well...that's different.  But still Apple prevents working imports due to the fact that FCP is PROFESSIONAL software, and most uses for it is for broadcast and web.

  • Error when Importing from iTunes

    I downloaded a CD this morning (Italy time) and the last 3 tracks failed with an error message. Are my tracks lost? Can I get them back somehow or get a refund or is all lost?
    Regards

    in iTunes, access your *purchase history* via your account in the iTunes store,
    find the file in question, and click on the *report a problem button*. report the problem.
    clicking here should take you directly to your iTunes store log-in window.

  • When i try to import from itunes into FCP 7 i get error, file error; 39 files recognized,0 access denied 243 unknown

    When i try to import from itunes into FCP 7 i get error, file error; 39 files recognized,0 access denied 243 unknown

    Be careful,  FCP is an open system which is great, but it allows you to work with formats that are not completely compatible with fcp and can cause serious problems down the road.  You can check the formats of all audio files brought into fcp by selecting them in the browser and hitting command-9,  Use compressor to convert all audio files to 48k 16 bit aiffs before importing to fcp.  There's a preset for this format in the apple presets.  You mention video files.  The same thing holds.  In particular, avoid bringing in h264 quicktime movies.  Convert to an fcp friendly format like prores using compressor.

  • Get an error message when importing from iPhoto says, "There is not enough free space on your Aperture Library volume to import the selected items. It is estimated that you need at least 44GB of free space."

    I get an error message when importing from iPhoto that says, "There is not enough free space on your Aperture Library volume to import the selected items. It is estimated that you need at least 44GB of free space." the drive is empty, I just reformatted it to Mac OSX journaled.

    I'm guessing this is an extrenal drive, correct? If so make sure the library you're importimng into is really located on the external drive. By default Aperture creates its library in your home pictures folder.

  • My iPhone 4 plays music at a low volume when connected to a car stereo

    My iPhone 4 plays music at a low volume when connected to a car stereo either by fm transmitter or aux cable. The volume on the phone is full and the car stereo is full yet you can barely hear it. Anyone else had issues with this

    I seem to remember someone several months ago having this same problem and I think it turned out to be the AUX cord.
    FM transmitters tend to have low volume associated with them as well from my experience.

  • How Can I Delete Originals I Don't Care to Keep When Importing From SD Card?

    Hi All,
    Just installed LR3 thanks to Santa. Have been going thru the video tutorials as well as the Lightroom_3_Help PDF and Lightroom-GettingStarted_Lo PDF but I can't figure out how to simply delete files from the gitgo when importing from SD Card or from my HDD (files already moved to HDD but not yet culled or imported into LR3). I was hoping I could, in LIBRARY, just r/c on a file that is plainly not worth keeping and just delete it so I dont have to do it later. Seems like I could, this way, be able to concentrate more on the shots requiring editing.
    Also, need suggestions as to how I should import my files using DNG, Copy, Move, or Add. First off, I am not a working pro but am an occasional serious amateur. I'm picky and I like things to look good the first time and I like options.  The pix already on my HDD are in the PICTURES folder; those imported from SD card get moved to that PICTURES folder. I have, in the past, moved the processed verssions to a different DESTINATION folder - now I still have the originals and I have processed copies to post and share.
    I understand that LR3 does ND editing but I assume that if I only keep a DNG then any time I want a JPEG or PNG of a picture I have to open LR3 to make one. Since I only have been shooting a few hundred pix a year (though with my new D5000 this will change) I am not gonna load up my HDD any time soon. So, is there a way I can make a DNG file, keep the original RAW or JPEG file AND save a processed JPEG or PNG copy in my DESTINATION folder in one swell foop?
    Thanks in advance,
    Phil in San Diego

    The LR Exchange site has three plug-ins that allow you to keep a "mirror" copy of your DNG/RAW images in JPG format for use by others without having to go into LR and generate them when needed.  The link is:

    One of them should help you with this.

    Have a look at your import setting specifically Store Files:
    Make sure it is set to where you want the originals to go.
    Message was edited by: Frank Caggiano - Don;t empty the system trash. The originals that you deleted from the Desktop are in there and are the only copies you have unless they are still in the camera.

  • When importing from a Word document placing the text in InDesign

    When importing from a Word document placing the text in InDesign I can only see the text from the first page of the Word document. I have increased the number of pages in the Indesign document to more than what is in the Word document, still only text from the first page is shown. What am I doing wrong or did I not set a setting correctly?

    When you want to auto flow text while placing, hold down the Shift key when clicking with the Place cursor on the first page. New pages will be generated and text will be auto flowed using the margins set up on the master page.

    When importing from my camera or file in Lightroom 5 my pictures are over-exposed by 1-2 stops, while they are well exposed on the camera-screen. How to get the 'right-exposed pictures on the screen?

    There is an option in your Lightroom preferences on the General tab, "Treat JPEG files next to raw files as separate images". If you have that option checked then Lightroom will import and display both your raw and JPEG files. Are you using active D-lighting on your camera? If you are then you need to turn off that feature.
