Re: Adding my own music in Quik Desktop?

What do you mean by the arrow beside the suggested music? There's only the play button.

Re: Adding my own music in Quik Desktop?

 

Hi @nathanbaffert

 

I believe spiryridge1813 is referring to adding music when using Quik for Mobile.

Currently this option is only available on the mobile version of the Quik app.

 

For reference: Quik for mobile - How To Add Music

 

Thanks!

Re: Adding my own music in Quik Desktop?

Yes. Android device. By arrow, I mean symbols "less" and "more" on both sides of auto filled music title. Tap on one of them and you'll get access to your music library.

Re: Adding my own music in Quik Desktop?

You cannot add your own music to the Quik Desktop app. Each song has its own dat file to tell the program how to cut the video to the beat. If you added your own song, this necessary file wold be missing.

The Quik mobile app works differently, so yes, you can add your own music.

Hi @optimus53

 

You may try to use the mobile app instead. 

Or use third party software such as Filmora or VSDC.
