Adding Audio

Question

I am having problems adding audio clips to my movie in Videowave. Usually I just click in the audio track on Timeline and the audio adds with no problem. But now I keep getting the following message: "Audio cannot be added at this point."

When this happened to me before, I simply added a photo and gave it a very long duration so that there was always lots of available room for the audio piece. But now I get the above message no matter how long the photo is. Can anyone tell me what to do to correct this?

If the timeline cursor is over an esisting audio track then you will get that message.

Do you get the message asking you where you want to place the audio?

Exactly how are you adding audio? Some detail pleae!

Take a look at the two things I've circled in the attached photo.

1. Make sure the "slider" is all the way to the right.

2. Make sure that wherever you want to add the clip there is "room" for the music; in the attached photograph, I have added the music on the music line. The music clips are as close as I can get them, but if they were any closer, I would have gotten your error message when trying to add my "c1.flv.wav" clip

Thanks for your reply.

1. I am adding audio by clicking in the "music" bar in the Timeline view. The cursor is well past the last song. I can add audio if I insert it in the "effects" bar but not in the "music bar. This seems really strange.

 

2. I have given the Photos lots of extra room so that is not problem. When this happened once before, I added two extra black panels and gave them each a duration of 900 seconds (ie. lots of time). I then put the song below the last black panel and began the somewhat painfull task of dragging it backwards to where I wanted it.

 

3. However, this time I cannot add the song in the music bar no matter how many extra panels I add.

 

4. Am I doing something wrong?

Thank you for your reply.

1.You mentioned a photo in your reply but I could not find it anywhere. Could you please send it again.

 

2. Also, I answered some of the questions that Myguggi had asked me and that may assist you in helping me solve this problem.

The "photo" to which I referred was the snapshot of my screen w/ Videowave in Timeline mode containing a photo and music. Did you make sure that slider was all the way to the right as in my snapshot and that the music is not overlapping w/ another piece of music?

 

Could you attach to your next reply a snapshot of your project where you are experiencing the problem?

Perhaps there is a ghost music file there. In Video Wave, go to the top menu, select tools then options then clear the proxy files. Try adding the music again.

 

BTW, you had me going there for a minute; you can add music to an effect track. Actually that is a Sound Effects track (sfx). If you can add it to the effects track (video) (Fx 1) then that might not be a good audio file.

Here are some examples.

 

The audio will be placed wherever the scrubber is located. If I attempt to add one while the scrubber in within the Audio.mp3 clip, I get that error:

If I attempt to add another with the scrubber outside of the last clip, I get the error:

post-39730-1235770486.jpg

 

 

If it is inside but near the end, the audio, Audio_1.mp3, is truncated to about 3 seconds long even though it is about 1 minute in length.

From what you wrote you do understand that, but I thought a review might help. Perhaps a double check of the scrubber to make sure it is in a valid insert location in Timeline view. Make sure there isn't something else on one of the other tracks.

I want to thank everyone for their responses to my question about not being able to add audio. What I discovered was that I had inadvertently placed some material on one of the "text" lines (probably when I was experimenting with how I wanted a text overlay to look). If this happens to anyone else and you can't add audio where you want to, the following was what I did to correct the problem:

 

1. Go to "Show/Hide Tracks" and put a checkmark in all of the available boxes (ie. all 7 of the Show Video Tracks and all 4 of the Show Audio Tracks etc.

 

2. Run the movie in the Timeline view from the beginning and watch each of the tracks. You may have to move up and down a bit to be able to see all of the tracks.

 

3. Remove anything on those tracks that shouldn't be there. I was surprised to see things on text line 5 that I didn't even know I had been using.

Glad you found out where the gremlin was hiding. :ninja:

 

Good luck w/ your future projects, and come on back with future questions!
