Add Soundtrack

  1. Click Add Music on the Home tab on the ribbon.
  1. Select the song of your choice, and click the Open button. Once you’ve added music, the Music Tools-Options tab now becomes available.
    Note: AutoMovie asks if you would like to add a soundtrack to your movie, if you select no you can always add one later.
  2. If you want to split a song at a particular point in your storyboard, select the photo or video before which you’d like the split. Click Split on the Music Tools-Options tab on the ribbon. Then drag and move the song track anywhere on the storyboard that you’d like.
  3. If you’d like to add more than one song to your movie, select the photo or video where you’d like to add the new song. Click the down arrow in the lower-right corner of the Add music button on the Home tab to access the drop-down menu. Click Add music at a current point. Select another song.

One thing to note, Windows Live Movie Maker only allows you to have one soundtrack playing at a time. This means you cannot have the audio from your movie, a soundtrack, and a narration track all at once.
