Music that is added to a Power Point slideshow, made into a movie and brought into iDVD, does not play in iDVD, why?
When I add music to a Power Point slideshow in iDVD, the music does not synch like it did in the Power Point presentation. Why?
Hi My name isXXXXX hope i can help you.

Export the file as a Quicktime Movie (.mov), then import the video into iMovie application. In iMovie add the music file and make proper adjustments. Then click on Share menu and select iDVD. That should do it...

Let me know how it goes..

I have done this. The music does not synch the way it did in Power Point. The choices for synching are limited, i.e., 1, 3, 5, 10 seconds per slide. In Power Point I can have a particular song play for X number of slides and start a different song with the next group of slides. This is not possible in iDVD, at least from what I can tell. Am I missing something here?
You can do any type of sync in iMovie, not iDVD. Have you tried iMovie ?

I will try synching in iMovie and get back to you.

In order to me to add the music in Quick Time I have to upgrade the version I have.
I've ordered the new version but will have to await its arrival. Thanks for your help.
What upgrade ? You don't need any upgrade to do this...

When I choose the audio selection to add, the add command is grey in the Edit menu and to make it accessible I have to purchase Quick Time 7 Pro.
No..wait. You just need to convert the Audio to MP3. You can use this free service to convert the file.

OK, I've converted the songs to MP3 but still can't access the add command in the Edit menu in Quick Time 7.
Sorry for the delay....

Okay...What are you doing in Quicktime ?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
I'm opening the MP3 file in Quicktime, I then open the movie file in Quicktime, then I go to Edit menu and look for the add command but there is no add command.
You have to do it in iMovie, not in iDVD, Quicktime or iPhoto.

I'm in iMovie, How do I add the music files?
Click on File menu and select "Import". Then select the Video and Audio file. Let me know..

Bingo, it's working.

Great ! Now once you adjust all settings, click on Share menu and select iDVD from the menu. This should transfer the Video + Audio to iDVD, so you can burn it to DVD.
