Muting the audio in video after 7 seconds

Postby pboyer » Thu Jun 02, 2011 7:02 am

I have a video that plays for several minutes. I need the first 7 seconds of audio in the video but after that I have an audio file that needs to play as the video continues. Is there a way to mute the audio in a video after a specified amount of time?

Here are the specifics of the scenario. The video starts with music, then is narrated in English. I have audio in French that I want to play over the video so I need the English speaking to be muted after the 7 seconds of music.

Thanks for your help.

Hello Phillip,
The easiest thing you can do from SmartBuilder's perspective is to redub your video.

I don't think you can do what you want in SmartBuilder. There is no method to change the volume or mute a video while it is running. If you were able to remove the audio from the video entirely (using an external program), you could cue up some external audio using the Timeline object or a Timer that counts down from 7 seconds.
