Edit the volume of your video clip in a few easy steps. All you have to do is adjust the volume percentage.

You can also add a fade-in or fade-out effect to a video or audio clip – to learn more about fading, see: how to add transitions and fades.


Turning down the volume of a video

Step 1. Drag and drop the video into the timeline

Drag and drop the video from the media library into the timeline.

Step 5. Close the menu

Once you are finished adjusting, simply close the menu by clicking away anywhere else in the editor.


Turning down an audio or music track

This works the same way as turning down the volume of video clips.

Simply add the audio clip to your timeline, then select it (click it so it is outlined):
