Have you ever experienced difficulties while editing your video and trying to add music to it? Let’s assume you paid special attention to the choice of music for your video but you aren’t really sure which editor to use to add it to your video easily and professionally.
It might come pretty tough, right? There are dozens of editors and yet the process still sounds complicated.
Leave worries behind, and go ahead to see what are some of the easiest ways of adding music to your video. There are a number of different ways of doing that. You can either add music through web-based services online or use the installed software.
Renderforest suggests an online editor that will assist the process of merging music with your video. It simplifies the process and helps you to deliver a professional video with music.
Let’s see how it works.
Start with choosing one of the video templates from the video editing section.
You can browse over the vast variety of templates and do a quick search for different topic categories, including finance, healthcare, education, and more.
Let’s pick Broadcast Video Editing Tool as a sample template and use it to edit our video.
After you choose one of the toolkits, click “Create Now” to start.
To start the process you should first decide between the two options for creating videos; adding scenes manually or using a pre-made story. To edit your video, you need to add scenes manually.
Click “Add Scenes” and start adding your own scenes manually.
Scene catalog offers a wide variety of categories, including Video Headlines, Quotes and Long Text on Photos, Social Action Scenes, Logo Animations, Check Marks and X Marks on Photos and a lot more.
Let’s pick a video holder scene to upload a video.
Customize the scenes once you choose them. See the tools, including text, and image placement and video placement fields to the left.
You can add your video in 4 different ways: put the video URL, choose from the media library, upload from your device, or add from the Stock footage library, which offers over 195.000 stock videos.
Once you add your video, you can edit and cut it to pick only the parts that you want. You would certainly need to do some trimming because sometimes the videos are too long.
Once you are done with adding your video, you should move to the music section to finally add music to your video.
There are several ways of adding background music. You can find tracks in our Music Library and choose the one that fits perfectly with the theme of your video. It offers a wide variety of music genres, including Corporate, Rock, Folk, and a lot more. Alternatively, you are free to upload the track that you want. You can upload not only music but a voice-over as well. Moreover, you can record it directly in the editor.
The good news is that you can preview the scenes before rendering the full video. So, once you are done with cropping, trimming and adding music to your video, make sure you go to the “Preview” section and click on “Free Preview” to check the final result. Your video will be ready in a few minutes.
First of all, remember that you can go back and edit the video anytime. The video is saved with all your projects in the section called “My Videos.”
If you find your video to be perfect, you would want to download it. Publish your video on YouTube directly from our platform or download your video for free and share it on social platforms. To get your video in high quality, either make a single purchase or subscribe to one of our plans.
Now, as you know how to add your music to your video online, let’s learn how to edit videos offline. You certainly need to get prepared for such situations. So, get your hands at investigating the best software to download on your device. Have it at hand to use it whenever and wherever you’ll need. When you are offline you either need to have the software installed on your Mac or on Windows. The software, of course, differs depending on your computer.
One of the best ways to add sound effects and music to your videos and movies on Mac is through iMovie. It has been widely used for a long time and it is mainly focused on making the process of editing easier and cleaner. You can attach music from iTunes, Sound Effects, or GarageBand. iMovie allows you to share the final video in just a few minutes via YouTube or to export it to your computer.

Just as “iMovie” is for Mac, “Windows Movie Maker” is a free built-in video editor for Windows. It offers a huge number of features, including video effects, transitions, and audio, text and timeline editors.
Except for the built-in option, there are a number of software programs that you can install on Windows to proceed with video editing. All you need to do is to install them and do your editing offline. Once you finish editing and upload the soundtrack as well, you will be able to download the video offline.
