Add your own Sound FX to the Library

If you want to add sounds to the existing Animation Sound Effects library then just click on the large blue and white plus symbol. You will be then prompted to add an mp3 or wav audio file. For best results you should use mp3 128 kbps stereo audio tracks. They have the optimum quality and are smaller for storing on disk. You cannot add audio tracks directly from an audio CD. If you do want to add audio from an audio CD then you must first convert them to either wav or mp3 format. This can easily be done with free software audio editing software such as Audacity or Audigy. Once the file has been converted to an mp3 you then go ahead and simply add it to the library for use in your current and future animation projects. All the included sound fx and music tracks that come with iKITMovie animation software are licensed and royalty free for use within animation projects created by your for non commercial purposes.

The sounds cannot be separated out and sold or used commercially outside of iKITMovie. See the licensing agreement for further details.
