How do I add media to sequence editor

Recommended Posts

I just got started and do not know how to add a song to a sequence. I have several sequences that I downloaded and want to see how they fit into the TSO music (for example). Any advice out there. This is my first post on any forum anywhere so I hope it is comprehensible. TY

In the sequence editor, go to Edit, and then select Media File. A box will open; just go to the folder/file on your pc that contains the file you want and select it. When you save your sequence, the location of the media file will be saved with the sequence.

Thank you for the info. Now I have another question, how do I get the music file from the CD to the sequence file.

Most computers are set up so that as soon as you put in a CD it will ask you if and where you want to copy it to...

Actually you want it to go to the My Documents>Lightorama>Audio folder...

But you may also want to put a copy into the My Documents>My Music folder so you have a back-up.

Thanks for the advice. I already knew that but had a brain lapse. Does the music have to be in MP3 format, and if it does how do I convert it to MP3.

No..LOR accepts a long list of audio file types (will try and find it).

A lot to of use Audacity (free download) to convert our music.

And with Audacity, you also need LAME:

If you use iTunes, you can use it to convert there music to MP3 also.
