Adding Voice To Music Track


lukerw

Question

How can I combine a voice narrative via microphone with an existing music track? I want the music as background to my slideshow, and will use the narrative to comment on the sequence of photos in the slideshow. In the alternative, is there a way to combine an existing narrative track with a separate music track?

Make sure that you have completed your slide show in VideoWave, load it and switch to timeline view. Install a microphone into your Mic jack on your computer. Click on the icon that looks like a box with plus and minus signs and click to show the narration track (not really necessary at this point). Now click on the icon that looks like a microphone. Follow the obvious directions.

 

Timing is usually a problem so make sure your slide show is done. Your other choice is to introduce a series of images with a narration. You can record a narration and then add it in to introductory slide(s). Choose the slide and make sure you are in the internal track mode. Add the narration to that slide. It will stay with the slide if you move it or if you change the duration of any slides in the show.

 

The narration track is separate from the music track; you will have to play with the volumes to make sure you get the volume of the two tracks correct..

sknis, once again I want to thank you for your help. As may be obvious, I haven't been using VideoWave, but create slideshows in Microsoft's Photostory 3 and then burn them with MyDVD. The first slideshow I ever created was with Roxio -- Creator 4 or 5, but then I switched to 321 Studios X Show and X Maker to utilize the pan and zoom capability. Photostory 3 has been working well for me, but it doesn't have VideoWave's separate narration and music tracks, at least so far as I know. MyDVD 8 burns well (with some limitations), after I updated firmware on my NEC DVD drive and stuck with Maxell media.

??? I'm not sure what your reply means. :D It was not obvious that you were not using a Roxio product to make your slide shows. Are you now planning to do that? :huh: Video Wave does have a plan and zoom editor and probably all the other features you want in an enthusiast level program so you can get rid of the other stuff. :) I'm glad that you have found how to burn your projects to disc.
