How to choose and add music in Davinci Resolve

WRITTEN BY : Paul Keane

Putting music on the video is a way to be more beautiful or interesting. But it will also help to give it a professional style. If you want to surprise and captivate your audience, your followers, or your friends, mastering this skill will be very useful.


The visual and emotional impact of a video on a person who watches it can be different depending on the music that accompanies it. 


After all, music can make a difference and turn a good video into a great video, thus increasing the value of your production and increasing its profitability in the case of commercial videos.




 How to choose music 



First of all, you need to understand what kind of video you are shooting. The plot gives a direct clue as to which musical genre is best to use. Think about what emotions you want to evoke with your video, and what background music can convey or enhance them. Background music affects viewers just as much as characters and objects, so ask yourself what do you want to say or do with your video. With the help of music, you can, for example, put more emphasis on certain images, change the rhythm of the video or fill the gaps with a suitable background. The possibilities are endless.


Are you shooting an educational or documentary video in which background music should keep the attention of the audience? Are you telling a story? In this case, you want background music that promotes the main theme, enhances the emotion and plays a part in the story. Good background music for video ads, promotional videos, or announcements, attracts attention, and ideally calls for action.
