A music from a video

You have a video clip, but the source of the music is unknown and Shazam has failed to deliver? No problem, you can use the sound track from any video file.

  1. Upload the video; it'll appear in the main video sequence.
  2. Drag-and-drop the clip to the sound line field and proceed as if it's a regular music file.

Music processing

The uploaded file will appear in the music line. If there are several files, you can drag-and-drop them around, changing their sequence, adding spacings and setting the moment the music starts playing.

If there's the icon in the top left corner of the track, the starting time has been strictly determined for this file. Click it once again to go back to automatic positioning.

The duration of overlay and overlapping of tracks is set using the Crossfade setting.

Use the music editor if you need to speed up or crop the music track, to add an echo effect to it or to change its volume. Click on the uploaded music file to open the editor, then find and press .
