  2. Click "File" and "Import Movies" in iMovie. Click the movie and click "Choose."

  3. Click the iMovie file and "Advanced" on the iMovie menu. Click "Extract Audio."

  4. Select the audio file, and click "Edit" on the menu. Click "Trim to Selection" and trim the audio clip to sync up to the video clip.

  5. Click "File" and "Save."
