Adding Music To Production

Question

I am creating a production that consists of still photos followed by several movies then more stills followed by more movies etc. In all I am creating 5 sections of each.

 

I can create the movie quite easily (now) but am having trouble with the background music I want for each of the stills sections. For the movies I want to retain the existing background sounds.

 

When I add the music to the stills it continues over the following movies.

 

I can overcome this by creating multiple productions & then extracting as mp4 files - I then bring them together in a single production. However when I do this for some reason the quality of the music suffers.

 

Am I on the right track, or is there a more straightforward way to do what I want?

You're using Videowave, are you? You can adjust the length of the music to span only the section of the stillls. Put the cursor at the end of the music object until it becomes a double headed arrow. You can then drag it to the right or left so that it coincides with the end of the last still image of the section. Of course the audio should be at least equal to the duration of the entire section of the still images.

If you want to create a DVD then don't output to mp4 files - use mpeg2, best quality.
