Creating voiceovers and adding music in WMM

One of the most useful things that you can do with a video editor is to add narration to your video. In fact if you want to make a documentary of any sort, it's pretty much vital.

Windows Movie Maker is a great little program for what it is - and the price is right (Free). But sophisticated it is not. It offers only one Audio/Music track which usually means having to choose between having background music or a voiceover.

With a little bit of cheating however, you CAN have both and although Windows Movie Maker does not allow you to gently fade between different volume levels, this too, can be done by cheating.

So if you want to know how to use Windows Movie Maker to remove an annoying sound-track, add some nice music, a narration AND drop the background music level whilst the narrator is speaking, then this video is for you - Check it out.


  1. i must say a big thank men. you are the men.... but i need you to show how i can make slow motions and still keep the original audio


    1. You can't slow down video and keep the soundtrack as original, because when you slow down a clip, you effectively make it longer. If for example you slow down a clip by half, it becomes twice the original length on the timeline so the original soundtrack would only last half way through (and would be way out of synch.)
