These audio elements can significantly enhance the storytelling and emotional impact of your video. Here's a guide on how to add voiceover tracks and sound effects to your Doodly projects.

      Note: To effectively apply the fade effect, make sure that it only covers a few seconds of the start/end of your audio clip, enough that it overlaps the waves. Do not excessively stretch the fade cone to cover the entire clip.
