I've got an Animated Gif that I've converted into a self-contained QT Movie... OK so that's the video track... I wanted to add a music track... tried to according to these instructions on QT's site:

QUOTE
To add an audio track to a movie:
Choose Import from the File menu and select an audio file to import. A new QuickTime Player window appears. Choose Select All from the Edit menu to select the entire audio clip, then choose Copy from the Edit menu.
Open the movie you want to add the audio to and position the playback head at the location where you want the audio to start. Then choose Add or Add Scaled from the Edit menu.
Add Scaled will slow down or speed up the audio to fit the length of the movie.


The video is set to "loop" and I just chose "Add"... so what happens is the video goes through once, no looping and then the music starts to a grey screen...

QT6.0.3 on OS9.1...

What am I doing wrong? Or maybe I'm trying something that won't work? huh.gif

Hi, Dreambird

You're almost there. It sounds like your playhead was at the end of the movie when you added the music track. Put the playhead at the start of your movie, and then choose Add.

If your music is longer than your video, then you will get the gray screen after your video ends. The looping won't begin until the music finishes.

You can always delete the rest of the music. Position the playhead to the very end of the video track, hold shift, and slide the playhead to the end of the movie. Then press delete.

Dreambird,

If you're trying to put music to pictures, you might want to skip the animated GIF part. You can import a folder of pictures as an image sequence, which allows you to set the duration of the pictures.

Of course, if you used something like GifBuilder and used the special transitions, then that might still be the easiest way. You can alwys set the duration in GifBuilder.

Once you make it to OS X, iPhoto will do the job for you.
