Creating different kinds of videos has become a trend for most teenagers nowadays. Most of them have truly upgraded their video editing skills. But what really makes up a good video aside from the impeccable transitions, video effects or animations, and color scheme?  Music. A good video is never complete without a background music. If your video doesn’t have any sound at all, it would be just like watching a silent film. Well, even worse than a silent film because silent films have minimal sounds.

It may be fun choosing music to complete your project. However, there are some important considerations when adding music to your video. Not all music can be very fitting to a certain video. It is important to ponder on these points before you apply them.

Try to fit it with the genre of your video

This is a general knowledge already. You wouldn’t add a sad music if you are vlogging (video blogging) about your recent trip abroad? Or a happy music if the video pertains to a sensitive topic. It is in your discretion to choose the ones that will complement your video.

Don’t Overdo It

There is a reason why you have chosen to apply that music to your video. Most probably, there would be parts where the video will require the foreground music (main audio) instead of the sound of a person speaking with music. Therefore, you must be creative without overdoing your project.

Set The Right Volume

Whether you’re doing a vlog or an informative presentation, you must be aware of the intensity of your music. It should be modulated to balance perfectly with the video. Loud music can destroy the whole quality content. So, if you want to create the perfect video, prepare your ears to get the right volume.

Create A Music Pocket

Create a music pocket using the equalizer. Basically what you do is go into your video editor and if it has a equalizer audio effect, go around to the 500 to 1000Hz frequency range and just lower that part of the audio in the music because that is the frequency range of a typical human voice. It makes the voice pop and feels like the music is not overpowering the voice.
