Using Audacity to create your soundtrack

Your movies will need soundtracks and sound effects.

 

A good place to go for them is pacdv.com/sounds.

 

Here are the procedures for making your soundtrack.

  1. Determine at what point you will need a particular sound effect.  A good way to do this is to create a timeline.
  2. Open Audacity (there should be an icon for it on your desktop).
  3. Place the sound effects at their proper places.
  4. Select "File" and then "Export as MP3."
  5. In Monkeyjam, select "File," then "Import" and choose "Audio."
  6. Preview your movie to make sure it looks and sounds right.
  7. Export your movie as an .avi file.
  8. Email me your movie to me as an attachment. (dmclean@archimedesacademy.org)
