Final Steps: Adding a Sound Effect and a Background

The final visual effect is finished, but in special effects, nothing is ever finished until it has been fine-tuned over and over again. Take the time now to adjust the Crop effect, review the In-point of the follow-on clip, and trim the tail of the duplicate video clip so that it matches the clip below.

Once the visual side of the effect is complete to your satisfaction, you should finish off this project by adding a sound effect below the Stop and Go points—perhaps a magical "whoosh" noise, something short and sharp.

Once you have sourced and imported your sound effect into Premiere Elements 7, you can use the markers on the Timeline to synchronize sound with action.
