When making a movie project, you’ll usually be working with several audio sources: the sound recorded on the original video, background music, sound effects and/or a voice narration track. Your goal should be to get all these various elements to flow together seamlessly in the mix without “clashing.”
For most homemade movie projects, Windows Movie Maker for PC (or iMovie for Mac) will accomplish all the basic editing tasks you need. These video-editing programs come preloaded on most newer computers.
In this tutorial we’ll be working with Windows Movie Maker, but the functions and commands are essentially the same in iMovie.
