I am trying to edit a video that has teachers saying what they're thankful for and has an instrumental soundtrack underneath.  I can't figure out how to manipulate the soundtrack for individual slides.  Some slides the soundtrack is just fine, others too loud and some too low.  Any suggestions??  This is my first attempt making a presentation on Photopia.

I have the same trouble. Often  when I have a slide with volume that I don't want to hear, I will go to settings and turn the soundtrack volume all the way up and the slide volume all the way down and the music still lowers when that slide shows up in the timeline. Would love the fix for this also.

This tutorial by Jennifer may help.

Photopia includes options to edit the Soundtrack "Volume", "Fade In", and "Fade Out" settings for individual video layers / slide sounds OR for all sounds that occur within each slide in the show.

The options to edit those settings for all sounds, in all slides, are located in the "Audio Settings" tab on the right-hand side of the program. Click on any audio file in the show Soundtrack to access that tab then look under the "Soundtrack During Other Sounds" section.

Similar options exist for video layers in the "Layer" tab on the right-hand side of the program under the "Soundtrack During This Video" section, and for slide sounds in the "Slide Sound" tab (again on the right-hand side of the program) under the "Custom Soundtrack During This Sound" section.

Please reach out to us through the Contact Us form on our website for any further assistance with these options.

I did those things, but everytime I adjusted the single slide audio, it adjusted it that way for every single slide.  My video was a series of soundbites, and there was also an audio delay with the sound versus the lips.  It took me several attempts to realize the only way to fix that was to not put any special slide style on the individual slides.  There wasn't a delay with "no style" selected.  In the future, I'll use this for photo shows only, but I don't know that I'll use it again if there are many soundbites.

We would like to look into these two issues further; audio adjustments on one slide affecting other slides and the detail about sound becoming out of sync when using a slide style. If you have a show that still exhibits these issues, or you can create one, please reach out through that Contact Us form so we can work with you to get the content transferred over for a closer look.
