Music plays an important role in GoPro home video. It creates the right atmosphere of your story. It also helps to cover disturbing noises from an original raw footage.
In this tutorial, I am going to show you how to add music to your GoPro Studio project. You will learn how to set audio controls of both, original sound and added music. Finally, you will see how to apply fade in or fade out effect to music or sound.
You can see the video of the whole process or read the text enriched with images. Choose whatever is more convenient for you.
Here is the video tutorial:
Now let’s describe what is happening in this video.
At first, complete Step 1 in GoPro Studio – import your raw video clips, view them, trim out unwanted parts and then convert them.
In Step 2, you will drag video clips one by one to the timeline.
Add Music to Your Video
Click on “MEDIA” button in the top left corner and choose your music file. Remember, you can add only music with an appropriate license. Here is a blog post showing where to find this “free music”.
In the next step, drag the music file under the video timeline to the line “DRAG AUDIO HERE”.
I always try to find the music which has a similar length as my video. But don’t worry if it doesn’t fit exactly. You can always adjust the length by dragging the end of the song.
If the original sound is disturbing switch it off by clicking the megaphone in bottom right corner of a particular video clip.
Set Audio Controls
If it is the opposite case and you want that original sound, you might need to increase the volume. Click on the desired video clip in the timeline and then adjust audio level in the right column of GoPro Studio.
In the last step, I adjust also a volume of the added music. I click on the song in the timeline and set audio controls in the right column. There is also an option to set fade in and fade out effects.
