overlapping music tracks


slo_byrne

Question

I'm assembling a photo production in videowave which includes transitions, menus and music. I'm at the stage where I'm now going to put in the music, in which some of the track will need to be overlapped. I read in the help file how to do the overlap, [cut and paste from one track to the next one down [the fx track] Each time I try to do this the second music track stays on the same line as the first music track, thus not enabling me to overlap the tracks. I can't seem to get the music tracks in a position where they will overlap. Was wondering if someone could give me a tip as to how I can complete this task. I'm using a full retail version of EMC9. Have used EMC7 for a few years prior to 9 and found it to be a lot more user friendly. Would appreciate any help you can give.

Your welcome, Joe. Glad you got it all straightened out

 

Awesome post and awesome assistance, you guys!! Thanks!!!! It solved precisely a problem that I was about to try to tackle. Here's how I used it:

 

I've found that you can run (at least) four audio tracks at a time. You can have one in music, one in special effects, one in narration, and one in the internal track of a slide. This means that you can collect bits and pieces of sound that you want to play at the same time (for example, a conversation taking place at a train station) without having to have any of the people in the same place, much less at the train station, when you record their bits. Just run around with a recorder (or in my case, a mobile phone) to the train station, and then visit all your friends, tell them the bit you want them to say (in my case, Happy Birthday Hannah!!!!), and then go home and load all the bits and pieces into the different tracks. And voilá!!! A crowd of the birthday girl's friends all screaming Happy Birthday to her, together, as if they were all standing in a big group on the steps of the train station.

 

Great stuff, Merv!

Great idea ! I wish I could watch that video. There are six audio tracks if you count internal and external plus the native --- if you captured a video/audio of the train at the station. ;)

Suggest you search these forums. You will find many posts on overlapping audio tracks. Here is a link to only one (see post #11).

Thanks for the compliment, Cookie. Like Steve (Sknis), I wish I could watch that video. :)
