How to mute sound on the required places of your video clip

Sometimes we need to get rid of the sound on certain parts of our clip if they are broken or have unwanted content or we simply want to mute some special parts of our video clip if - for example - we create a video project, censor the video or would like to make the video to be exchanged with friends using Youtube, Facebook or any other social network. Regardless of the purpose of your project, Video Splitter will be the indespensable and easy-to-use product for any of your cases if you would like to mute sound on special fragments of your movie.

Just follow the steps below:

Step 1 
Open your file in Video Splitter. You can use the special button on the main window or open it via File menu -> Open Media File...


Step 2
Choose fragment(s) you would like to be muted using Video Slider and Add marker buttons. In our example we mute two fragments of the video clip.

Move the slider to the start position of your first fragment and click on the Add marker button of the Video Splitter editing bar or just press the "M" short key. 


Step 3
By the same way choose the end of your first fragment and the start/stop positions of the next fragment. You will get a timeline with five fragments on it. 


Step 4
Now you need to set the fragments which you would like to be without sound in the output file. 
Select the fragment with the slider - its color should be changed to orange - and press the "Set audio silence" button. 
In the same way repeat these steps to turn off the sound of the second fragment. 
The sound will be replaced with the silence on the selected fragments.
You will get the following view in the Video Splitter window:


Step 5
Press the Trim button to start the editing process or go to the Edit menu and choose the Start Trimming command.


You will have an output file with muted fragments.
That's all, have success with your projects!
