I’m new to all of this. I run Win 7 64 Home Pro, got 8 gigs of RAM, Gigabyte mobo, Radeon 5450 graphics card.I bought Sony Movie Studio Platinum 12. Bundled in the original software was Sound Forge 10. Unfortunately, the serial # for Sound Forge would not allow me any more than 30 demo use. So I went shopping for audio freeware and encountered Audacity. I was impressed with everything about Audacity. The integrity of the creators, the clarity of the manual, etc.
Unfortunately, I can’t import .wav or .wma files into Movie Studio. I’m baffled, having expended a lot of effort testing microphones, inputs, gearing up my computer to record, etc. Now I’m at an impasse.
What kind of recording software should I be using with Movie Studio? How do I import music files as standalone tracks into M.Studio? Thee questions are general, I know. I am a newbie but I’ve got a passion for this. I want to make videos with quality sound, and recording through my camera seems to be the only way i can do this at the moment.
Any suggestions? Feedback? Thanks for your time.
