iMovie is installed on your Mac by default and it is super easy to use, which makes it one of the most frequently used video editing software on Mac. You can import various audios and videos into this program to make creative videos easily. Now you might wonder: can I import Apple Music into iMovie to express my creativity?

I am afraid that it is impossible to directly import Apple Music to iMovie since Apple Music is DRM protected. The good news is that you can add Apple Music to iMovie after ripping off the DRM with a powerful tool - Apple Music Converter.

Apple Music Converter is a professional DRM ripper and audio converter for converting DRM-ed Apple Music to DRM-free MP3, FLAC, AC3, etc. During the converting process, it will preserve full ID3 tags and metadata information.
