Adding audio effects
Windows Movie Maker lets you add basic audio effects to your project. The basic audio effects include:
- Mute. The audio is not played and cannot be heard during playback.
- 05Fade In. The audio gradually increases until it reaches the final playback level.
- Fade Out. The audio gradually decreases until it can no longer be heard.
The transition time for these audio effects is roughly two-thirds of a second.
You may have audio that you do not want to play at all. For example, you may have a video file that contains audio you do not want to be heard in your project. You can mute the audio on the Audio track or the Audio/Music track, so it is not heard in your project. You can also mute audio for single audio files.
Similar to video effects, audio effects are maintained when you split, cut, copy, or move a piece of audio or music. For example, if you add the Fade In audio effect, and then split the clip, the Fade In audio effect is applied to both clips. However, if you combine two audio clips, the audio effects that were associated with the first clip are applied to the new combined clip, and the audio effects for the second clip are removed.
