Lesson 11. Advanced Editing > Creating a voiceover from a video clip

Creating a voiceover from a video clip

In Premiere Elements, the audio track and the video track of a clip are linked by default. When you click and drag a clip in the timeline, the video and audio track will always move in tandem, this ensures that the sound is always synchronized with the picture. However there may be times when you would like to remove either the video or the audio track of a particular clip, to create a voiceover for example. In this exercise you will place a video clip into your timeline, remove the link between the audio and video track, and then delete the video track.

1.
In the Timeline window, click on the clip voiceover.avi to select it. Click and drag the clip to the right and then return the clip to its original position. The video and audio tracks move in unison because they are linked by default.

2.
Choose Clip > Unlink Audio and Video. This will remove the link between the video and audio portion of the clip.

Note

Unlinking the video and audio of a clip removes the underline below the clip name in the timeline.

3.
Choose Edit > Deselect All to deselect the clips.

4.
Click on the voiceover.avi clip in the Video 1 track. Notice the audio track is not selected.

5.
Press the Delete key on your keyboard to delete the video portion of the voiceover.avi clip.

6.
Click on the voiceover.avi clip in the Audio 1 track and drag it down to the Audio 2 track. Once inside the Audio 2 track, drag the clip to the left, placing it at the beginning of the timeline.

7.
Hold down your Shift key and click on the Snowman1, Snowman2, Snowman3, and sled AVI clips to select them. Then click and drag the clips all the way to the beginning of the timeline.

8.
Press the Home key on your keyboard to place the current-time indicator at the beginning of the timeline. Press the spacebar to play the project. The voiceover.avi clip plays concurrently with the audio of the Snowman1.avi clip.
