How To Import A Video Into Garageband

Share This:

A video is a powerful tool that can be used to tell stories, create music videos, or share tutorials. With the right tools, it’s easy to import a video into GarageBand. Here’s how:

First, make sure you have the latest version of GarageBand installed on your Mac or iOS device. You’ll need to have the Audio Unit Extension feature enabled in order to import a video into GarageBand. To check this, open up the app and click on “Preferences…” in the upper-right corner of the window. In the “Audio/MIDI” tab, make sure that “Enable Audio Unit Extensions” is checked.

With that out of the way, you can now start importing a video into GarageBand. On your Mac desktop version of GarageBand, click on “File” and then select “Import…” from the menu bar at the top of your screen. Locate and select your video file from where it is stored on your computer (e.g., Movies folder) and then click on “Open.” You should now see a preview window allowing you to edit any audio or video effects you want to add before importing the file into GarageBand. When you are finished editing, click on “Import File…” at the bottom right-hand corner of this window and then select “OK.” The video will now be imported into GarageBand and appear in your project timeline as an audio track with its associated audio waveform visible below it (you can also view this waveform by clicking on “View > Show Waveforms” in the menu bar).

For those using an iOS device with GarageBand installed, you can also easily import videos into GarageBand using iCloud Drive or Dropbox: First open up iCloud Drive (or Dropbox) and locate your video file within its folders. Tap on it so that it opens up in its own preview window; here you will be able to edit any audio or video effects you want to add before moving on to importing it into GarageBand. Then tap on “Share…” located at the top right-hand corner of this window; select “Garageband” as your share option from a list of available options which will appear at bottom of the screen; finally, tap “Add” when prompted by dialog box which appears after selecting “Garageband.” This will take you back to iCloud Drive/Dropbox whereupon tapping the done button will cause chosen video file to be transferred automatically over iCloud/Dropbox directly into the garage band app whereupon it can be added as a new audio track within the timeline of the project simply by tapping “+” sign located near the top left-hand corner of screen followed by choosing “Create new track”.

Importing videos into GarageBand allows for endless creative possibilities! Whether you are creating music videos or tutorials – having easy access to uploaded videos makes creating projects so much easier!
