I've got an mp4 in QuickTime which has been split into several clips.

How do I export these separately as audio tracks?


File Menu > Duplicate [Cmd/Shift/s]
Delete extra clips.
File Menu > Export > Audio Only... will save as .m4a

Repeat for each clip.

Tedious, but the best I can figure...

  • That exports the entire mp4. It doesn't export the separate clips. – Snowcrash Aug 30 '14 at 13:32
  • Changed answer to include splitting out each clip. – Tetsujin Aug 30 '14 at 14:08
  • Tedious but does the job. – Snowcrash Aug 30 '14 at 14:27
  • You used to be able to copy/paste a selection to a 'New Video/Audio Recording' & save that, but it seems they updated to allow clips directly to FCP/iMovie. Been a long time since I used video outside FCP. – Tetsujin Aug 30 '14 at 14:30
  • I would say this is 'almost' optimal. My solution involves a little bit more nuance than trimming each one after copying. If you split and then cut the split clips over to a new file, you don't have to redo everything every time. apple.stackexchange.com/a/340226/160704 – lustig Oct 21 '18 at 17:48
