Hey everyone I’m new to DAZ and I’m trying to find info on how to add music to DAZ (sound bite?) I’ve been watching stuff on YouTube but I can’t find anything on how to add music.
Also I’ve been using animate and I’m having a hard trying to figure out how to zoom out. I have two figures in frame, but when i start to get them to dance I can only see one or one and half of the other one. I can never see both. Could someone tell me what I need to do to be able to see both.
under the EDIT menu in Daz Studio 4, you should see an option to ad AUDIO.
You’ll then get a window where you can browse to select an audio file .
To see more of your scene, you can either create a “new camera” then move it back from your figures,
or, select a different viewport layout, for example the “Quad” view, allow you to see four different views,
EG: Front, Left, Camera1, Top.
you can also change any of these views .
it’s a useful source for legitimate Trial / Demo / Free-ware
There should be some MP3 to WAV converters there.
I can’t suggest any specific program, as I make my own music, so, converting MP3’s into WAV, isn’t something I use a separate program for,.. since most music sequencers will export as Wav and / or MP3 if you need it.
Also, bear in mind the possible copyright issues of converting and/or using this audio, if the audio isn’t your original creation.
I am using MP3. can you tell me how to covert an MP3 to WAV on my PC? Is there a program? Thanks for all your help.
I use Free Rip (http://freerip.com/). I usually use it for converting WAV to MP3 (my DAW won’t export MP3 without an expensive plug-in), but it works going the other way, too. It supports a wide variety of audio formats, so it should handle anything you might throw at it.
STUPID question time: Are you trying to add a lip synced voice or are you trying to add background music?
If you wish to add background music you will need a third party video editing program. Load your Animation into it and add the music as a track behind (lower on the tracks) of sound than your lip synced voices.
The Audio in DS is only for adding speech files to your characters to make them talk.
Normally,. (even in feature films) the sound and vocals are recorded and added in (post production)
You would use a Video editor Like Adobe Premiere, Adobe After effects, Final Cut, to “Composite” the animation frames, an the audio soundtrack, vocals and effects tracks.
As Jaderail points out,. Audio in DS4 is mainly used for creating Lip-sync animation from a vocal.
However,.. You should be able to add Music, as long as it’s in WAV format. and it should play back with the animation.
Audio will only be exported with the animation is you render to a movie format like AVI, and that usually means either a really Big (uncompressed) file,. or a smaller (lower quality) compressed file.
That’s why the audio is added to the animation in post production, ..to retain the High quality image, and have the ability to edit the Audio if needed.
Hope it helps
