Part 1: How to Make a Music Video on Windows & Mac

To do the post-production of making a music video, you must have a handy video editing tool as your MV maker.

Using it, you don't have to master the usage of a complicated user interface or sophisticated video editing terminologies. You will be able to perfectly finish the post production alone following the instructions we give in this post. Here are several key features of the program:

Steps to Make a Music Video on Windows & Mac

Step 1Free download, install, and launch Tipard Video Converter Ultimate on your Windows or Mac. When you see the main interface of the program, directly head to the MV tab at the top.

Add video clips

Step 2Click the Add button and import the video clips you recorded. Then pick a theme you like in the Theme section. Here you can use the preview screen on the right to see which theme suits your music video best.

Step 3Move to the Settings tab. Untick the checkbox for Keep original audio track. Then add the music you want to use by clicking the "+" button. Now there is no other sound but your background music in the MV.

Customize the audio settings

Step 4Give a click to drop down the background music menu, then remove the theme music. Note that if you change the theme later, you have to come back here and remove the theme music again by yourself.

Now we have finished the music part. What's left is to cut the footage to fit the music using the MV timeline at the bottom of the interface.

Remove the theme music

Step 5Use the trimming feature to cut the unwanted segments and leave the highlights you want. Click on the scissors icon to open the trimming interface. Then you can select a period from the footage by setting the starting and end. A click on the Save button will only keep the selected segment.

Trim the footage for the mv

Step 6Edit the footage if you want. Click on the magic wand icon on a footage to open the editing panel for it. Here are several useful features under different tabs.

Rotate & crop: Your footage might be recorded using different devices and thus have various aspect ratios and directions. You can make them in the same direction using the Rotation feature and in the same aspect ratio using the Crop feature.

Crop

Effect & Filter: Here you can adjust the basic effects and add filters you like to the footage (not the whole music video).

Filters

Watermark: Stamp a watermark on your music video to indicate that you or your team owns the copyright.

Step 7Adjust the sequence of the footage. You can simply drag the clips left and right to change their places on the timeline.

Step 8Customize export settings and produce the music video under the Export tab. Here you have to make the settings according to your own situation. It's ok to use MP4 format, 24 fps framerate, and 1920*1080 resolution. One more thing worth noting: You can click the gear icon and set a higher audio bitrate to get better audio quality.

Export settings

Step 9Export the music video, then head to the Toolbox tab and open the Media Metadata Editor. After importing the music video into it, you can edit the metadata like title, artist, album, composer, etc.
