It refers to the background static or hissing sound that can sometimes appear in audio recordings. Luckily, if you are using Windows Movie Maker or similar video editing software, there are ways to effectively remove white noise from your recordings. In this guide, we will walk you through a step-by-step process to help you take out white noise in Movie Maker.

  1. Import your video: Open Movie Maker and import the video file that contains unwanted white noise. You can do this by clicking the 'Add videos and photos' button or simply dragging and dropping the file into the timeline.

  2. Split the audio and video: In order to remove the white noise, you'll need to separate the audio from the video. To do this, right-click on the video in the timeline and select 'Audio Detach.' This will create an independent audio track below the video.

  3. Apply a noise reduction effect: Now that your audio is separate, you can apply a noise reduction effect. Click on the audio track and then click the 'Edit' tab. In the 'Audio Effects' section, find the 'Noise Reduction' effect and drag it onto your audio track.

  1. Adjust the noise reduction settings: After applying the effect, a new window will open with various settings for noise reduction. Use the sliders to adjust the 'Noise reduction' and 'Sensitivity' levels until you find the right balance to eliminate the white noise without affecting the overall audio quality.

  2. Preview the changes: To make sure the white noise has been successfully removed, click the 'Play' button to preview the changes. If needed, further adjust the noise reduction settings to achieve the desired result.

  3. Export the edited video: Once you are satisfied with the results, it's time to export the edited video. Click the 'File' menu and select 'Save movie.' Choose your preferred format and quality settings and click 'Save.' Your video will be exported, free of annoying white noise.

By following these easy steps, you can successfully remove white noise from your video and improve the overall audio quality. Remember, practice makes perfect, so don't be afraid to experiment with different settings until you achieve the best possible results.
