How to Overlap Sound Recordings on Windows Movie Maker

11 Mar

Learned this process yesterday when making my educational Youtube video:

I created this video by making a recording of my voice, adding pictures, and then adding a music sound track.  Since the Movie Maker only works with one sound track at a time, it didn’t want to overlap my voice and the music at first.  It took a while, but I finally figured it out.  It’s surprisingly easy, but most of the instructions I found were outdated from the new Windows Movie Maker.  Consequently, I had to make it up as I went! 🙂  

Sound Recording 1

  • Create your project with just the first sound track. Add pictures, effects, etc. until it is complete. 
  • Go to File in the upper left-hand corner of your screen. Click it.
  • Now find Save Movie. it should be the sixth option in the list.  
  • Choose “Recommended for this project” 
  • Now it’s going to bring up the pop-up page that walks you through saving the movie.  Save the video.  This compresses the sound and video into one file.
  • Let it finish processing; the program will tell you when your video is done.  

Sound Recording 2

  • Close this project down.
  • Start a new project in Windows Movie Maker.
  • Under the “Home” tab, you’ll find “Add videos and photos.”  Click it.
  • Find your video with the first sound recording on your computer and add it to the project. This will import the video and sound as one file.  You cannot adjust the first sound recording now, but you can add another sound recording to it.
  • Now under the “Home” tab, you’ll find “Add music.”  Click that and add your second sound recording.   
  • Now you can play with the start times, end times, etc. to get it all perfect.
  • Go through the Save Movie process again, and voila! your video is finished with two sound recordings!

Sound Recording 3-~

  • Repeat the same process, compressing everything into one video file and then adding to it with each project.

Annabel Lee

10 Mar

I wanted my Poetry students to see how Poetry is supposed to sound–not as flat words read off a page, but with the emotions of the author. There are alternative theories as to the identity of Annabel Lee, but this is the more common belief, and the one I personally subscribe to.

Music: Felipe Sarro (Bach, Orchestral Suite 3)
