I have read the guide to upload my video here but I have several parts that I want to join and add sound before. What would be the process for that? I was thinking of using Sony Vegas. Please help.
It's a good idea to learn and use Sony Vegas if you have it?
I use Audacity to join two sound clips to one single wav file. And I use AviUtl or VirtualDub to join 2K video clips from MMD. (VirtualDub demands that appended clips are identical in codec, resolution and bitrate though, because it's actually a sound dubber I'm misusing as a video clip joiner, and AviUtl reduces the colours from 32-bit to 24-bit). And I use Windows Live Movie Maker to join many MMD clips to 1K video and conveniently handle more than two soundtracks in a row with mute pauses between or delayed start. And I use Avidemux for sound dubbing. Those are all freewares. Some has default settings that might reduce the sound quality, so I check the soundtracks between every step with SPEK: http://spek.cc/ to avoid unnoticed losses of sound quality.
(Note that MMD gives 30 or 60 fps video, so don't allow your software's default settings to convert it to 29.97 or 59.94 fps video. You must make a save movie custom setting to get the desired sound quality and fps rate from MovieMaker. Or imitate your MovieMaker sound editing in Audacity afterwards and mute and re-dub the mp4 file with Avidemux?).
(And you can replace your old mp4 file in any old Iwara upload at any time, in case you notice that an overlooked default setting somehow has reduced the quality).
Add new music to video?
Add music to video?
Use Avidemux to add the music. Select the setting Audio/Copy.
Or use VirtualDub. Select direct stream copy for both the video and audio.
So basically you use audacity for edit audio, AviUtl for join the raw avi files from mmd and then movie maker for final edits? What are your rendering settings? Can i use any format/codec and my video will work fine here?
I use Movie Maker only from start to end, if a video has 29 clips from 9 videos and 5 soundtracks like this one: https://ecchi.iwara.tv/videos/74n17fjz0tmzngrd . I also made this one with Moviemaker with only one soundtrack: https://ecchi.iwara.tv/videos/0vxl2iz4khzddgoo (I muted a copy of the completed video and dubbed the sound anew with Avidemux. And then examined both version with SPEK to see which version I should discard. http://spek.cc/ .)
I used AvIUtl to join this one https://ecchi.iwara.tv/videos/2k99rikkvfqma01b with three 60fps+60fps+30fps clips, because VirtualDub doesn't allow appending clips with other fps than the first clip. If I have three avi clips that all are 60fps, then vill I use VirtualDub both to append the clips and dub the music in one go.
well, go to Steam. Steam has several self- explaining easy to use semi-professional and cheap video editing software like magix Video Delux, Movie Studio and Vegas Pro. Video production software from Steam is highly recomended for beginners and non-professionals you can learn them fast and they are much better than Freeware like Avidemux or Windows Movie Maker 2012. beside of that you can find on Steam more great software for creators, like sorce filmmaker or fuse :3 I am useing Steam for playing Games every day, but its unusual to check it for creators software or anything else than games, so people wouldnt think of it :3
