Using Audacity for Quicktime Videos

Post by shobhasub » Tue Sep 26, 2017 3:25 pm

Hello all,

I create online courses and need Audacity for editing the sound in my videos. My videos are Keynote voiceovers edited with Quicktime 10.4.

I am able to open the Quicktime Video audio file in Audacity and do the Fade in Fade out and noise reduction etc, but how do I get the audio changes back into the Quicktime video?!

I have Quicktime Player 10.4, OS X Yosemite 10.10.5 and Audacity 2.1.3.

I don't speak Mac, but the free multi-platform video-editor Avidemux can do that,

Although you may not need extra software

So Audacity + Quicktime does not work? You need additional software?

QuickTime is not our product. Please refer to the QuikTime manual for help with QuickTime. https://support.apple.com/en_US/manuals/quicktime

Audacity is an audio recording and editing application. Audacity does not edit video, although Audacity may be able to import the audio data from video files if you have the necessary codecs installed (usually required FFmpeg).
