Video And Native Sound

Question

I am editing an instructional video of me talking. I wish to insert a graphic (such as colorboard with writing)into a portion of the video without disrupting the native sound. I have been unable to manipulate the video without doing the same splits and cuts to the native sound. I suppose what I need to do is edit video and native sound separately. Does anyone have suggestions on how to do this, or any way to add graphics into a section of video and leave the sound intact? Thanks.

Do you want the audio to continue across your graphic, or just stop there and continue later?

 

If so just add it as a Overlay. If it doesn't have any audio, the Native audio will continue.

Do you want the graphic to overlay the video or split the video, insert the graphic and then have the video continue. If the latter then the audio will also be split and you will have silence while the graphic is on view. If you want the sound to continue during the graphic there is a way to do that but you will of course lose the sync between video and audio

 

If you add the graphic on the overlay track then you could adjust the size of the graphic creating a picture-in-picture effect. I would think this is the best way to achieve what you want

Thanks for the respnses. Adding the graphic as overlay sounds like a good solution. I want the audio to continue through the graphic uninterrupted. Hate to be such a neophyte, but I'm so far unable to add a color panel or any other graphic to the Overlay track - any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks

Split your video, on both sides of where you want the graphic to be placed over the video. You will now have 3 sections to your video, and, in Timeline view, click on the video section, where you want the graphic to show, click on Internal Track, and drag your graphic down the the overlay track. Then, click Done to get out of the Internal Track editor.

 

You can't add a color panel this way, though.

 

If you want a color panel, with text on it, save the production that you were working on, without the color panel. Now, start a new production, don't open any file, and right click in the first box in Storyline view, and add a color panel. Put whatever text that you want, on that color panel, change the length of time to however long you want that color panel to stay open, then save the project.

 

Once you have it saved, click on the Output button, at the top of the screen, and export, to a folder on your hard drive, as a DV AVI file or mpg2 file.

 

Now, open your orignial project, and make sure that it is split the way I explained in the first paragraph of this post, and making sure that you have Media Selector docked on the upper right side of your screen, browse to that file you just exported, and drag it down to the internal track of the portion of the movie where you want it to show.

 

Resize that file so it covers all that you want covered, click Done, then preview your production. It should no be as you want it, although you may have to adjust it.
