Overlaping Audio Music Using Creator 9 Videowave

Question

I have Creator 9 and am using VideoWave to create a DVD. In the production I have a video of 515 picturers and 14 songs. When I preview each the production each song has a few seconds gap between each song. I want to eliminate the gap and change with overlaping or fad-in and fad-out affect. How do you do this?

Put the audio on one of the other audio tracks. You can overlap tem and have the audio fade out on the music track and have the next audio fade in on the narration track for example. iGnore the naming of the audio tracks.

I either didn't understand your answer because what I tried didn't work. When I first got this software about 6 years ago there was a simple option to select fade in and out for audio music; but I havent' been able to find that option. Do you know about it, where it is and how to use it?

There use to be a simple option when adding music to fade in and out each song without having a gap. I can't seem to find that option can you help? I am using Creator 9 with VideoWave.

When I read your first post, I thought you were working on a audio project. Only your mentioning Videowave in the 2nd post seems to indicate that you are doing a video project

Perhaps you should give some details on what you are trying to do and what you are doing.

Yes, is this a video or an audio project? And how long are the gaps you're hearing between tracks? Where are your tracks from (what is the source) and what file type are they (MP3, WAV, MPG...)?

Did you use Sound Editor to piece all of the music clips together as one sound file, then use that sound file for your VideoWave slide show production? That is how I did most of my slide shows.

Grandpabruce has an excellent point---If you have several different audio files that you want to place in a videowave production, use

the Sound Editor program to add all of them and edit each to exactly when you want them to start and stop each (including fade in and out).

I have produced lots of videowave productions using this and have placed all of them on the music track.

If the music is not "related" to the pictures in the slideshow then this method is Ok. But what happens if you have a audio clip that only fits with a sequence of pictures and you make some edits to the video? You would then have to redo the whole audio.

Is this what you're looking for?

I used to do that, too. I would put the pictures, and the music that I wanted for those pictures in VideoWave. I would then click the Fit Video and Audio button to sync everything up. I would then export that production as say .avi 1. I would do that for each set of pictures.

 

I would then open up and new instance of VideoWave, and bring all of those separate .avis in, do whatever transition that I wanted in between the .avis., save the production, go to MyDVD, do whatever authoring I wanted, and burn the production.

 

A number of years ago, I did a more detailed writeup of this, and posted it in these forums. I would look for it now, but I am off to the land of nod.

Actually you can add all of your audio files on the same music track and move each one around (fade in--fade out--shorten--etc.) where ever you want each of the audio files to play.

Adding several audio files on the same music track takes a bit of moving the play marker around to add each one but once this is done it's a piece of cake !!

That works but there is still a short time where the first piece of music ends and the second begins. If that is OK, use it. The multi-track arrangement allows one piece of music to fade out while another fades it. With a little work, and the type of music, you can get it to match beats so you don't notice the change.

Putting the audio on different tracks and overlapping and using Fadeo out/in is the only way to get what the OP is looking for. I am sure that can be done in EMC 9 but I don't have it installed so can't test it.

Multi-track works fine and have no problems with it. The screen capture I showed was to show how several audio files could be placed on the same music

track. And in that Particular file I had already edited the audio files to how I wanted them and placed them on the track. One can move them around on the same music

track if that's what's wanted. Different ways of doing what the original poster wanted I guess. Each production has one's particular optons.

 

BTW--Your linked video is great !

Frank the OP wants to overlap tracks with fade in/out to get rid of the gaps and that cannot be done with a single track (unless you create the audio outside of Videowave)

You're right Walt but that's why one suggestion was to use Sound Editor to get the audio the way he wants it. But then there was the possibility that the OP would have to know

what was produced in Sound Editor would fit the slide order. But if the OP wants to "Overlap" the tracks then my option would not work for sure.

I do mine this way and it works. This should accomplish what the OP wants to do.

How do I get gaps out of audio. Several songs and want to play music continuously

 

Instead of starting new threads, all over the forums, including this quoted one, which was in the Creator 2009 forums, why the hell don't you read the thread here and report back how it went for you, after you have tried the suggestions?!!!!

 

If you start another thread, asking this same question, it will be binned.

I send you a PM. Did you bother to read and try what I suggested.?

Repeating the same posts over and over again will not get you any response faster. It only annoys people especially if you don't even indicate whether you have tried any suggestions.
