iBooks Author Import of Echographs

This tutorial will teach you how to showcase your Echographs in Apple’s iBooks Author.

Before you bring your Echograph into your iBook, transfer the Echograph you want to use from your iPad to your computer. For more information on how to do this, be sure to take a look at our Exporting High-Quality Echographs to your Computer tutorial.

The Echograph in its native form will need to be converted to an iBooks Author ready format, such as m4v. To do this open your Echograph in Quicktime.

From the file menu select “Export.”

From the “Format” drop-down menu, select “iPad, iPhone 4 and Apple TV.
Click “Export,” and your video is iPad-ready.

Once saved to your computer, the easiest way to bring in your Echograph is simply to drag-and-drop the .m4v Echograph straight into iBooks Author.

From there, open the “Inspector” tab, and change the Echograph’s “Repeat” setting from “None” to “Loop.”
