Adding Music to Videos Using Movavi Video Editor

Posted on 23 April 2018 by sam

Adding the right background music to accompany your video can completely transform its vibe. Not only will the music that you add help to set the tone for your video, but it can also help to provide it with pace and change the way in which people perceive it.

Because of the huge role that music can play in videos, it is important that you know how to add background music to yours. That task will be made a lot easier if you use Movavi Video Editor, and shouldn’t take you long at all.

How to Add Music

If you want to learn how to add music to videos, you should launch Movavi Video Editor and select the ‘Create project in full feature mode option’ to open the editor. Next, click on the ‘Add Media Files’ button and select both the video that you want to edit as well as the audio file that you want to use as background music.

After you’ve added the video and audio, both will appear in the ‘Timeline’ area at the lower part of Movavi Video Editor’s interface. At that point you could technically save the video if you like – but before you do it is important to check that the lengths of the video and audio are the same.

If the video is longer than the audio that will mean that there will be no music towards the latter part of the video. On the other hand if the audio is longer than the video it will continue to play to a blank screen once the video is done. Fortunately you can fix both these issues easily with Movavi Video Editor.

Assuming the video is longer, you can either add a second file or add the same file again – effectively playing the same music twice in the video. That can be repeated as many times as is necessary, until the length of the video and audio is the same or the audio is longer.

When the audio is longer than the video, you can use Movavi Video Editor to split it and trim out the excess. To do that, move the red marker all the way to the end of the video and click on the ‘Split’ icon (i.e. the scissors) right above the ‘Timeline’. Next, click on the audio segment that was split off, and hit the ‘Delete’ key to remove it.

Once the audio and video lengths are a match, you should take a minute and explore the other features in Movavi Video Editor. With their help you could enhance the video quality, edit the audio, apply filters and effects, add captions, and more.

If and when you’re satisfied with your video and the changes that you’ve made, click ‘Export’ to save your video. By the time you’re done you should have successfully added music to your video using Movavi Video Editor, and maybe improved it in other ways as well while you’re at it.
