Locking Audio

I'm editing a friend's music video. It would be very helpful if in the one shot where we can see his mouth, he's saying the correct word! However, everytime we work on adjoining scenes, the audio shifts. Is there a way of locking the audio to that specific scene? Thanks.

 

If you want the audio to stick with a particular scene, then select the scene and switch to the internal tracks and now you can add the audio to that scene and it will not move when you modify adjoining scenes.

Thanks. As per your suggestion, I added the audio to the intenal track. However, all I got was an 8 second segment of the audio (of a 40 second song) that runs the length of the 8 second scene I added it to. I need the beginning and end of the song to extend before and after this scene to run under the preceding and following scenes. Is there something I am doing wrong, or is this not possible with this program?

Thanks.

Sorry, I thought you wanted the audio to apply only to the scene.

 

For what you want, the audio has to be on the main track and you will have to move the audio clip whenever you make changes to the video. Why don't you add the audio afer you have made the changes to the adjoining scenes.? What you want (if I understand it correctly) is not directly possible with this software or any other that I know of.

You could do it by making a separate clip for the video segment to which you want to apply the audio. This clip would consist of part of the precedign scene, the 8 second scene and part of the following scene.

If I sync the audio to the one scene, and then edit the surrounding scenes, I will be constantly re-syncing the audio, a very tedious and laborious process. And it might even be impossible to sync the surrounding clips if the audio keeps "moving."

But as Walt suggested, why not just do this step after all other editing has been accomplished?

Video work is tedious and laborious :rolleyes: The "easy" in Easy Media Creator is "not" :blink:
