FAQ

When do I need to add music to my video?

Knowing how and when to add background music or sound effects to your video can be a subtle yet powerful tool to amplify the viewing experience. Besides the obvious instances when music is the very crux of the video, it is most commonly added to help set the tone and emotionally connect the audience to your content. For example, when you are trying to build suspense, adding mystic and eerie background music can heighten anticipation and even excitement, subconsciously encouraging the viewer to keep watching the video. Music can also serve as a bridge to make the transitions between different scenes smoother, fill in silent moments, or highlight a particular point. Something as simple as the "ping" of a message or the sound of tires screeching can instantly bring your video to life. CapCut the free online video editor has a huge collection of audio files that allows you to use music and sound effects in all different applications.

What are some important factors to consider when adding music to my video?
