Then QT Pro it also convenience tool to do music photo slide show, when I wanna share some interesting photos on Facebook or present it using iPad, it's fun to have some background music.
Here I will use 3 apps to do it, it's a little complex, but I get used to do this way, quality just much better!
1) Open iMovie (I still use iMovie '06), import music
2) Once it's done, you can see music waves, it's useful when cutting music from time line, more precisely.
3) Choose the point from time line, then right-click to "Slit selected Audio Clip at playhead", like first pic below, then music will be separated 2 parts, delete others to keep just ringtone.
|To delete part that don't want|
4) Then right-click on music waves, click " show clip volume level", this can do fade-in & fade out effect.
|adjust volume level, can do fade in & fade out|
5) Export it as mov file
6) If you get Quicktime Pro, now can export it as aif file, then import to iTunes to cover to AAC file. Now the most import part for iPhone user:
iPhone required ringtone file as " *. m4r", once the music cover to " *.m4a", drag this file from iTunes music folder, (usually that covered m4a file will be at unknown album folder), then delete original m4a file from itunes.
At Desktop, change file name from XXX.m4a to XXX.m4r, then double click m4r file, it will be add to iTunes ringtone list automatic.
No matter you wanna play photo slide show or only want to add a image to the movie you made, on QT Pro, click "File -> open image sequence", to choose all images.
When file opened, click "common+A" to select all, "common+C" to copy it.
8) Back to the movie, click "Add to selection & scale"
9) Now it's all done!
10) Finally, save as another file name, "save as self-contained movie"
