Importing Video Files

Importing Video Files

If you’re ever asked to compose music for film, video games, or some other visually-based task, SONAR’s File > Import > Video File command will come in very handy. Using this command, you can include an AVI, MPEG, or QuickTime video in your project and edit the existing audio tracks or add new ones.

NOTE

VIDEO FILE FORMATS

AVI, MPEG, and QuickTime are special digital video file formats specifically designed for working with video on computers. Each format uses its own unique compression scheme to achieve the highest possible video quality in the smallest possible file size. AVI (Audio Video Interleaved) is a Windows-based format, which means that any computer running Windows can play AVI files. QuickTime is a Mac-based format, which means that any Macintosh computer can play QuickTime files. With special player software, a computer running Windows can play QuickTime files too, which is why SONAR supports the format. MPEG (Motion Pictures Expert Group) is a more advanced format that sometimes requires special hardware for playback. Therefore, MPEG video files are usually much better quality than AVI or QuickTime files, and they are also smaller in size.
