How to move stop and start points for music track
Posted: 08 Oct 2016 12:53 PM
I am a NEWBIE to MM. My movie has a mix of still pics and movie clips taken with my iphone (jpg and mov files). I only want the music track active during still pics and not during movie clips as they have their own audio. I chose a freeware music file and was able to add it to my movie. I get lost when trying to adjust stop and start points. I don't suppose there's a drag and drop function to move stop and start points is there?

Welcome to the forums.

If you just want to mute the music during the video tracks, try the following:

1. Set the timeline cursor at the beginning of the video clip
2. Click on the Music Tools tab and then click on Split
3. Set the timeline cursor at the end of the video clip
4. Click on the Music Tools tab and then click on Split
5. Select the music clip created by the splits by clicking on it
6. Click on Music Tools > Music Volume and set the slider (volume level) to zero (move the slider all the way to the left)
7. Repeat steps 1 - 6 for each video clip
