Title: Extra Audio/Sound for AniLab
Post by: Darryl W on March 20, 2019, 11:47:05 PM
It would really cool if we could add other audio or sound files to animation lab ie: a background music clip and say an engine running and or the explosion from a bofors gun. Sure some sounds may not mix at all well but an alternate method maybe a sound for an engine running in one part of the animation and in another part of the animation a gun going off.

Daz,

have you looked at Key Frames Properties?
Right click on a particular keyframe, and go from there.

Regards Tim

HI Tim.   Can I ask, does it work OK for you.  Sound is something I've never got working on my computer,  I can set up the .wav file, it even plays a sound then I click play in the dialog.  It shows as a sound line (green timeline) in keyframe editor,  but doesn't save any sound with either the AVI, nor when saving as a separate .wav file.    With the separate file, it saves a file as a .wav, but its empty.

Just wondered.
Andy

Hi Andy,

yes, sound works okay.
I usually just select one of the suitable templates, either of the HDTV choices. 
You can play around with these, or others, if needs must.

For me, the green line in Keyframes Editor doesn't usually show up until after the first run.

Regards Tim

When choosing a suitable template for sound insertion, the sound available (if any) is shown (see attachment).

Regards Tim

This awesome information, I assumed that anilab was limited to just one sound throughout the entire animation process. So this is great news.  :D

Darryl.     Topic moved to the AnimationLab section as requested.

Thanks Tim.   It must just be something on my computer which is in conflict with AL's sound.
