iMovie is not loading iTunes, any thoughts?

by questionaboutimovie / January 22, 2013 2:31 PM PST

I just bought a macbook pro and even thought itunes shows up in iMovie, none of my (2) songs shows up. I am trying to make a slideshow to music but I cannot figure out how to get my song on there. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Does anything show up in that window?

Anything with a little triangle next to it?

Those two songs, are they video tracks or just plain audio tracks?

Do those tracks play in iTunes?

The only things with a triangle next to it under the music tab are next to 'ilife sound effects' and 'itunes' these are the triangles that let you expand and collapse the section. there are no 'yellow !' triangles.

The 2 tracks audio tracks, and yes, they play in iTunes

Thanks again!

could you go ahead and load a few more tracks, just to see if they appear in iMovie?

You can try copying the iTunes song to your desktop and from your desktop you can try dragging the file into iMovie.
