Exporting Audio

A Motion project can be exported as an audio-only QuickTime movie (.mov), or as a QuickTime movie with both video and audio.

To export audio
  1. Choose File > Export.

  2. In the Export dialog, type a name for the exported file, then browse to the location where you want to save the file.

  3. Choose QuickTime Movie from the Kind pop-up menu.

  4. Choose an export preset from the Export Preset pop-up menu, or click the Options button to view and select export options.

  5. Choose Audio Only from the Include pop-up menu to export audio only, or choose Video and Audio to export a movie with both video and audio.

  6. If you want to export only the marked play range instead of the entire project, click the “Use play range” checkbox.

  7. Click Export.

    Your exported file is saved to the specified location.

After you export audio as a QuickTime movie, you can convert the QuickTime movie file to another format using QuickTime Pro or another audio application.
