Windows 10 Photos is a totally free but powerful, simple and convenient original video editing software program in Windows 10. Users are able to add some cool effects like 3D effects and filters as well as add background music to Windows 10 Photos to create new videos. However, Windows 10 Photos does not support M4P files as background music, which means Apple Music files in iTunes library cannot be used directly in Photos. Read this article to know how Apple Music Converter can help to solve this problem.

Using Photos to Create and Edit A New Video

First of all, search and open "Photos" or "Video Editor" through Start Menu or you can also right click the video file, click "Open with" and choose "Photos". Then you will see a few tabs at the top, click "Video projects" to open the video projects interface, where you can create a new video project or edit existed video projects.

After creating a new video project, you are able to add videos from your PC or your collection to the project library on the left, and then you can drag and drop them into the storyboard below.

In the storyboard, many cool functions are provided for you to edit your video. You are able to trim, split or resize your video easily, and other functions like adding filters, adding texts, adding motions and 3D effects are directly listed in the storyboard. You can also click the "Background music" or "Custom audio" button at the top of the interface to make an interesting edit.

Video Project Interface

Add Texts

You can add texts by clicking the "Text" button. On the right side of the text adding interface, you can enter the texts you want to add, select the animated style of the texts, and choose the layout to decide where you want the texts to be placed in the video.

Add 3D Effects

Click the button "3D effects" and you will see your video on the left, a timeline below and three tabs with its own panels on the right. Choose a 3D effect from effects panel or add some from the 3D library. Moving slider on the timeline decides when the 3D effect appears. And moving the two blue buttons on the timeline decides the starting point and end point of the 3D effect. The edit panel allows you to edit the 3D effects that you have chosen for the video. Once you finish your operations, click "Done" to save them.

Add Background Music in Your Video

To add background music into the video, all you have to do is to click "Background music" or "Custom audios" at the top. Clicking the "Background music" button allows you to add some built-in music to the video, but you can only click "Custom audio" button to import your own audio tracks and control the length and starting point of it.

Add Built-in Music

If you want to make your video more attractive, you may need to add an appropriate background music to it. The audio file formats that can be used with Photos are AAC, ADTS, MP3, M4A, WAV, WMA. But unfortunately, Apple Music songs are encrypted M4P files and therefore they cannot be used before conversion.
