Editing Audio Within Photoshow?

Question

Hello,

 

Is there any way to edit and crop audio within Roxio Photoshow? I'd like to cut out the beginning of the music we've uploaded as well as use fade in/fade out at the beginning and end, but I'm not finding these options. To be safe, I managed to cut the audio in another program, but the only file option I can save it under (MP4) keeps erroring out whenever I try to upload it to my photoshow.

 

Any insight you can provide would be appreciated!

There is no real audio editor in this program. It was designed as a down and dirty, easy to use slide show program.

 

Don't even try to use the on-line program to make your PhotoShow. Download the desktop version and use that to create your PhotoShow and to output it to a file or disc or to upload the program to the web site. Enev that will be faster than trying to make it using the on-line tools.

 

mp4 is typically a video file but there are some mp4 audio files. You would use wav (preferred) or mp3 as audio files for best results..

 

Do you know how to use audio files to match with the images/video you are going to use? You can cut off the audio file that way but there is no way to crop the front or middle of a audio file. If you ave nothing else, download the free trial of GoldWave and crop your music that way. As I said before, you can easily end the audio where you want it but you cannot edit the start.--- Goldwave will help.

 

Please come back and let us know if that helped.

Digital Guru,

 

I'll definitely look into Goldwave for editing the audio file prior to uploading to Roxio. What I originally identified as an MP4 was a typo. It was meant to read MPEG-4 audio file.

 

I have used movie editing software before, but have no experience with this particular program. We used One True Media in the past, but that shut down in May and we needed a program to create a video for an upcoming event. I'll make sure to download the desktop version of the program for ease of use. Thanks for the suggestion!

 

Another question I have: Is there any way to have a theme play for only part of the video? The first 5 minutes of the video would do well with a theme, but after that we use pictures, text and different music and it would be better to stop the theme during this part and just be a regular slideshow.

 

I appreciate any advice you can offer!

Read the help files, you just stop the muci where you want it and don;t add anything where you don't. The help files are very clear.

So if I stop the music it will stop the graphic theme of the slideshow? I didn't mean the music theme, but the visual theme you can set from the beginning on how your photos are presented. Or does that run the length of the photoshow?

Have you even played with the program? The visual theme (transitions) runs through the entire length of the visuals. If you stop the music or eliminate the music, or replace the music, it does not have any effect on the slide show visuals.

 

What you explained above seems to be within the functionality of PhotoShow but if you want more control, look at the appropriate full service video editors from Roxio or Corel or Pinnacle (all owned by Corel).
