How do you add more than one audio track to a Picasa movie picasa3sucks 1/28/09 8:07 PM
The Help in Picasa 3 says that multiple audio traks can be added to a movie by selecting Tools, Options, Slideshow, and then check "play music during the slideshow" and use the Browse button to point to a folder containing audio files in MP3 or media player format. Picasa will play all the selections in the folder and loop back to the top audio file until the slide show is complete. Don't work. Any idea how to get this option to work? I've been working on it all day with no results.

I think you are confusing a slideshow with a movie. Your quote above comes from this Picasa 3 Help link and refers to a slideshow not a movie :

A slideshow is only playable within Picasa on your own computer. Note that any music that is DRM copyright protected may cause a problem.

If you are actually making a movie , you can only add ONE audio track. For details click on the "Movie Tab" here: http://picasa.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=19533

There is a good free program called Audacity that allows you to join music files together to make just one music file that you can use with your movies.

Here is the link to that site:

Here is a helpful instruction guide for using Audacity:
