Today we’re going to cover a few different aspects of import audio, adding a custom image to your audio only imports, import audio through screen capture and not importing audio at all.
Audio import image
Kinesense can import audio files (wma, mp3, wav, etc.) that aren’t attached to videos, for example, the audio of a 999/911 call. You do this by selecting the Audio Only option in the CCTV tab of the wizard. When Kinesense imports the audio it adds an image which can then be exported later on in a video. The default image is just a plain image with “Audio Only” written across if. You can change this to add whatever you want. To do this in the Select File page expand out Display Image.
To add a new image select the button beside Open File, then when Open File is enabled select it and add your new image. There is a Set as Default checkbox that you can check if you want that to be your image going forward.
Exclude audio from import
When you import a video directly into Kinesense it will try to automatically take the audio track from the video file for you. Sometimes this isn’t what you want so you can choose not to import it. In the Advanced Import options, which we’ve mentioned previously, select the Record tab and scroll to the bottom. There you’ll find a the Don’t Import Audio From File(s) checkbox. Check it and then proceed as normal.
Screen capture audio
Audio can be imported into Kinesense during the screen capture process too. When you start your screen capture make sure to click the mic button.
Just make sure you don’t have any other audio playing when you do this as it picks up any sounds being played by your machine. You don’t want your important interview audio to be drowned out by you blasting Britney on Spotify, it happens to the best of us.
