Chapter 12. Working with Audio Tracks > Adding New Audio to a Movie

Adding New Audio to a Movie

If you’ve read Chapter 7, you may be able to guess how to add new audio to a movie. If not, you needn’t worry; we’ll show you here anyway. Remember that a QuickTime file can have multiple tracks of the same type, so you can add new audio even if your file already contains an audio track. This technique is often used to add narration or background sound or music to a movie that already contains audio.

To add new audio to a video file:

1.
Open a QuickTime file containing a sound or music track, or import an audio file into QuickTime.

(We covered importing non-QuickTime files in chapter 2; if you feel you need more details about the process, look ahead to chapters 13 and 14.)

2.
Select and copy all or part of the audio movie.

3.
Open the movie file to which you want to add audio, and move the Current Location indicator to the point where you want the audio to begin playing.

4.
From the Edit menu, choose Add (Figure 12.1).

Figure 12.1. Use the Add command to add the audio to the video.


5.
Adjust the duration of the audio or video, if necessary:
