While you are editing the video, you may sometimes want to mute an
audio track temporarily. In the Adjust Clip Volume dialog box, you
can mute the audio volume completely by selecting the “Mute clip”
checkbox.
By default, the audio levels are set to mix the audio from the video clip and the
audio/music you’ve added at equal levels of volume. You can control whether the
audio from video clips or the audio/music you’ve added should have precedence by
clicking Tools and then clicking Audio Levels. This displays the Audio Levels dialog
box shown in Figure 10-40.
To play your audio/music without hearing the audio from the video, move the slider
all the way to the right. To mix the audio from the video back in, move the slider to
the left. The more you move the slider to the left, the more prevalent the audio from
the video will be. When you are finished setting the volume levels, click the Close
button in the Audio Levels dialog box.
Adding Titles, Credits, and Overlays
Your videos can have title frames, credits, and title overlays. You can add title frames
at the beginning of the video or before a selected clip. You can add credits to the end
of the video. Title overlays are title frames displayed over the top of a selected media
item.
You can add titles to your video by completing these steps:
1. In Windows Movie Maker, click Tools and then click Titles and Credits.
2. In the Titles Pane, click one of the following links:
Title at the Beginning
Title Before the Selected Clip
Title on the Selected Clip
3. If you are inserting a title before or on a clip, select the clip to use in the timeline.
4. As shown in Figure 10-41, enter the primary title in the first text box provided
and any subtitle in the second text box provided.
