Users of iMovie who make the jump up to Final Cut Express often miss iMovie 3’s great sound effects and wish they were available in Final Cut Express. Well, you can import those sound effects into Final Cut Express without much effort. The trick is to know where they reside on your computer.
1. Begin by Control-clicking on the iMovie application icon in your Applications folder.
2. From the shortcut menu select Show Package Contents (Figure 1).
3. Go inside the Contents folder to the Resources folder and find the Sound Effects folder.
