I’ve been playing around with Luna Fusion and adding music to the project is something I did all the time. As a photographer and learning about video making process, audio is not our strong point.
Hence I always use royalty free music to add to my timeline so can you convey are you stories in better light or mood. This is where I first learned the term that “ audio is half the story”. I could not believe it.
But but since then I have become a better audio person, just a better story teller overall.I know now the difference between and shotgun microphone and I dynamic microphone for example.
When I just putting a a series of photographs together and adding music to the the timeline as a last minute effort. It was not on a higher priority. In film they have composer just do a specific score for the film only, but as a solo content creator that is not possible.
When I first started making YouTube videos, I just knew a few independence composer and use Creative Commons license for royalty free music.
I say YouTube content creator the last thing you want to get into trouble with is a copyright strike on your content. That that is why I always use nowadays the music that YouTube supply. Did you know that you can use YouTube music? YouTube in the studio section is where you find the music and sounds effect for your project.
Guarantee way that your effort in making video does not benefit someone else. Just simply use YouTube supply music. Sure it is not very unique but it is a great way for people to start. And lately I have seen some decent musics available and YouTube keep updating it which is good for content creators.
Getting music is easy and once you have the right music you can simply import it straight to Luma Fusion. You will drag it on the timeline as you would do with video editing. You now treat the music as just another video on your timeline and there is a lot you could do in Luma Fusion for audio.
The hard part is to get the legal right to use other people music without penalise. And I have shown you the ways in this post. The editing is easy, composing music is hard, not edit music.
