Adjusting the audio levels
You can adjust the audio levels between the Audio and Audio/Music tracks (the audio that was captured as part of a video clip on the Audio track, and the audio that was captured or imported and added to the Audio/Music track). Adjusting the audio levels determines which audio will play louder than the other in your movie.
The default setting plays the audio in both tracks at equal levels. The audio level you select will play throughout your movie.
By adjusting the audio levels, different effects can be achieved. For example, at the beginning of your movie, you may have a video playing with the included audio track while having a separate audio clip playing. In this situation, the audio level could be set so that dialog in your video can be heard over the music that plays in the background that appears on the Audio/Music track.
- If you move the slider all the way to the Audio/Music track, the audio from the video clip may be played for two seconds or so when the project is previewed in Windows Movie Maker. However, in your final saved movie, the audio will play back as intended where the audio from the video clip is muted.
