Adding a Soundtrack

With Movie Maker, you can play a video clip sound and soundtrack simultaneously and have one play louder than the other. You can put two types of sounds in your movies: sounds that are part of a video clip, and separate sounds, such as music or narration, that appear on the Audio bar of the timeline. You can import and edit sound clips in the soundtrack the same way you edit video clips using the Audio bar. Remember that if you use a clip from a CD, you must obtain permission from the publisher.

Add a Soundtrack

Click the Tasks button on the toolbar, if necessary, and then click Import Audio Or Music.

Select the folder that contains the files you want to import.

Select the files you want to import, and then click Import.

Click the Show Timeline button, if necessary.

Drag the sound clip onto the Audio/Music bar at the location where you want the clip to play.

Click the Set Audio Levels button.

Click the Rewind Timeline button, and then click the Play Timeline button.

Drag the Audio Levels slider to adjust the balance between the video click and the soundtrack.

When you're done adjusting the volume, click the Close button.
