How to Convincingly Edit Music to the Right Length for Your Videos

It can be a really frustrating thing. You have the footage in place and you have found the perfect bit of music to bring everything together, except there is one problem: it isn't the right length. Every video editor needs to have some audio editing skills, and this fantastic video tutorial will show you how to put them to use to convincingly edit a piece of music to the right length for a video. 

Coming to you from ZY Productions, this helpful video tutorial will show you how to edit a piece of music to the right length for use in a video. You might find yourself in this situation, if, for example, you have the perfect storyline of a wedding in place and the couple wants a specific piece of music in the background. You are already an expert in visuals, and rather than disturbing the storyline you have put together to force a fit to the music, you will likely create a better overall product if you tweak the music to fit the visuals. One important thing to remember that I often notice filmmakers overlooking is creating smooth ends in addition to interior transitions. Even a simple fade-in and/or fade-out (when appropriate) can really increase the professional feel of your overall product, so don't neglect the very beginning and end. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
