Making a Music Video

April 17, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 168

There are many ways to make a music video, of course, but here is one simple and fun method of doing this. This method uses Magix Music Maker software, which is very inexpensive and can be found at most places that sell software. This software has a file manager that allows you to drag and drop a music or video file right from your PC and into any of the tracks.

Scroll through your drives on your computer and drag the music file that you want into the tracks. Next, if you have a video file, find it and drag it into the track below the music file. By clicking play, you can see how your music and video match up. You can edit your video in a number of ways. For example, if you want to take a section out, just select the video clip by clicking on the little tabs at the edges of the clip. Next click your cursor on the timeline where you want to split your clip and click on the little scissors in the toolbar above. This will split your clip and you can delete a section or even move it around somewhere else.

This program even comes with video clips that you can use. You can drag additional video clips into the tracks under your previous clip and these will be mixed together. If you click on the grey arrow at the bottom of a clip, you will open the video effects menu and you can access a full range of video effects. There are many effects to choose from such as optical effects, changing the speed and color or even reversing the video. This program also provides for many editing features for the music track as well. You can select the music file just like you would the video clip and you can split it as well, if you like. There are also quite a number of effects available from the effects tab. You can use these effects to get really creative with your video.

When you are happy with your music video, you can export the entire project as one video by going to the file menu and selecting 'export arrangement as.' You will have several options, but the typical one would be video as AVI. The program will mix down everything and you will have a music video ready to upload onto YouTube.
