It is assumed you have a completed digital video file on your PC and some digital video editing software, such as Windows Movie Maker, which is free and included in the Windows operating system.
You can load your complete digital film or video or a single clip from the film or video into QuickScores Video Window, which may assist you in composing your score, as it will play along in sync with your music. To do so, choose Movie from the Options menu, click on Open and using the Open File dialog that appears, choose your movie.
Select the SMPTE offset of the beginning of the movie in the SMPTE Offset
portion of the dialog. The offset you enter here will be the offset from
the beginning of the movie to which the start of the score corresponds.
You can mute the movie by checking the Mute box.
To add your wave file to your film, use your digital video editing software. If you are using Windows Movie Maker, import your saved wave file or files using Import from the File menu. Select Timeline View by choosing Timeline from the View menu. Now simply drag your audio clips to the Audio track at the bottom the Timeline window. You can move the clips back and forth in time and change the volume before saving your project or your movie.
