Basic Audio Editing

The following options apply to all audio tracks (Audio 1, Audio 2, Audio 3, PIP Audio). To apply to a particular track only, lock the audio tracks that you do not want to edit.

  • Fade In Fade In button /Fade Out Fade Out button: The speed of the fade depends on the size of the selection.
  • Volume Up Volume Up button: Increases the volume of all audio on the Timeline by 25%.
  • Volume Down Volume Down button: Decrease the volume of all audio on the Timeline by 25%.
  • Replace with Silence Replace with Silence button: Mutes the audio selection on the Timeline. Unlike the delete or cut options, this option does not remove any of the existing waveform.

To apply an audio option

  1. Lock the audio tracks (Audio 1, Audio 2, Audio 3, or PIP Audio) that you do not want to apply the option to.
  2. Drag the seek bar across the Timeline to make a selection. You do not need to make a selection to apply the Volume Up or Volume Down options.
  3. Click the audio option on the Timeline toolbar.

Save Audio as MP3 or WAV File

File > Save Audio As > MP3 or WAV

The Save Audio As option combines all audio on the Timeline into one audio file. Use this option to make a backup of the audio or to create a soundtrack to import into another application.
