Editing Music and Adding Audio Effects
Original music composed specifically to accompany animation is referred to as animation music. Cartoon music was popular in the 1930s and 1940s, when animated cartoons were first becoming a major form of entertainment. Before then, music had usually been used as background for live action films; animation pioneers such as Léonard Mathieu, William Hanna, and Joseph Barbera developed techniques for using recorded sound to bring life to their images.
Cartoon music is characterized by its simplicity and its ability to attract viewers with its catchy melodies. Many classic songs have been written specifically for use with animation, including "The Music Box" (1936), "I'm Popeye the Sailor Man" (1938), and "Sock It To Me!" (1941).
During World War II, much military-related music was composed specifically for use with animation. This included pieces by Erich Wolfgang Korngold, Rudolf Wagner-Regler, and other members of the Vienna School of Music. After the war ended, traditional music began to be incorporated into animation again. Today, many people are surprised to learn that much original music is still being written for use with animation.
Under the Home tab, click the "Add music" button. To add audio to the whole project, select the Add Music option. Click OK to add the first song to the project.
