Sound and Movies
We will capture, edit and combine sounds with stop motion movies using
Sound companion and QuickTime Pro - both are available for Macintosh and
Movies can be created to play in multimedia programs like HyperStudio and
Powerpoint as well as AppleWorks and Microsoft Word.
They can be made to play on the Internet as well as on CD-ROM.
Here is an excellent article, "How
Analog and Digital Recording Works," from the How Stuff Works web site.

Your task is to capture your voice in Sound Companion and play around with
Edit the sound you captured by:
Cutting and pasting parts of the sound into a different spot;
playing it backward;
fading it in and out;
changing the pitch;
changing the tempo, and,
Anything else you would like to try.
Remember, the "Undo" key is your friend. If you don't
like the results of something you tried, immediately go to Edit->Undo and
the last action will be undone.
Add a second track (maybe whistle a little something with your friends)
and combine the two - or more, if you want - and hear what the combined
tracks sound like.
Capture a small section of soound from a music CD using QuickTime Pro.
Select a movie to work with and add a narration track and a music track
that complements the story.
