As axeman said, all the products are meant for visual effects not sound.
But as I will explain, if you are having trouble retaining sound or you think that rendering takes too long any way, rather than the fuss of having to fiddle around with the settings and then finally after all that time it dosn't work


First of all please reply and rate.
I hope that this has been some use


You will need windows movie maker, one of he fxhome products visionlab
compositela...





So, you got your video with the effects but no sound.

Put the video in to the timeline







Now you need to select TIMELINE















After that you need to drag your original video to the audio source layer







Then finish off dragging the original video in to the audio source layer

Axeman, rock filmers,

I am sorry you think that the pictures are big but I think that in a tutorial you need big pictures so viewers can take a detailed look at what butttons i have pressed.Yes, they were massive but I have changed it to a good size.

please respect that i have taken time doing this tutorial and I think it covers all the necessary things.

if you only have a grudge on the picture size then tell me but if you think the tutorial might not help you but others then reply and tell me that

I never said they were big, I was just wondering what "not now" meant.

Hey,

I have tried this. But I can't get my edited video onto Movie Maker. Like I have it saved in a folder, but when I click on the folder to import it into movie maker it says that no items match my search. So I can't get the video into Movie Maker!?! Please Help!

Ok thanks everybody, I rendered the file, I think. Anyway its showing up in movie maker. I can drag it on the timeline and everything. But I cant drag it onto the audio timeline? How do I put it on the audio timeline? Thanks again.

You have to render and create a final movie from VL, CL or EL (see menu item below, second from bottom). Before you import it into Movie Maker the files (in the folder) are program files for VL, CL or EL not effected movies.
