Reduce Native Audio Track For Sound Effect In Videowave

Question

Hello,

Is there a way to reduce or attenuate the native audio track so a sound effect on a slides internal track can be heard better? For example I am creating a slide show with music on the native audio track. On one of the slides someone is getting a bucket full of water dumped on them. I have a splash sound effect clip on the internal audio track of this slide. I would like for the music to be reduced for the duration of this slide so the sound effect can be heard. Thanks in advance for any insight.

How familiar are you with the program? You can try this (link) once you click to show/hide tracks and select to show the native audio track. I think it works in Creator 2011 because I used it yesterday. The video needs to be updated to show that it works.

Thanks much for the quick reply. I only use the software once or twice a year but I have been using for several years. I work in IT so I have a good bit of Windows based application experience. I am familiar with showing or hiding the audio tracks. I am not sure that gets me what I need though. I may not have explained clearly.

My sound effect is on a single slide (photo with 3 second duration) internal audio track. I put in on the internal track so the sound effect stays with the track if I add more slides.

 

My music is on the project's "music", "Nar" and "Sfx" audio tracks (I am using all 3 of these to mix between songs).

I want the music reduced when my sound effect is played but resume normal volume after this slide.

The link provided by sknis will get you exactly what you want - reduce the sound of the natice track while "splash" slide is showing with its associated splash audio.

Ohhhh. Many apologies to Sknis. I should have just clicked the link. I did not realize that it was a tutorial link but thought it was a videowave program shortcut (although thinking about it I don't know how that would have worked :-)

 

That look like exactly what I need. Thanks much. This is a great support board. I am just WOW'ed by the quick responses.

 

thanks again,

Clay

Clay, You may find it easier to extract the audio from that clip and just use that on one of the tracks other thna the native track. Navigate to where that clip is and right click on it. You will get the option to extract the audio -as a wav file. Save it an add that to video wave where you want it.
