Exporting movies with audio

I was wondering if there a way to export a movie with audio. Since part of my animation depends on the audio data.

    Hi Thomas,

    I haven't done much with audio in Nodebox, but I don't believe you can export a movie with audio. I see two possible workarounds:

    Use Nodebox to generate your audio and store that as an external file. Export the animation as a (silent) mp4. Then use a third-party app to merge and sync the audio and visual files into a single movie. (Nodebox animations run at 25 frames per second, so keep that in mind when generating the soundtrack.)

    OR have Nodebox play the animation and audio and record it with a screen recorder. This assumes that the animation is computationally simple enough to keep up without skipping frames.

    For more information, see this thread: http://support.nodebox.net/discussions/nodebox-2-3/6073-audio-input...

    It might be possible to accomplish this with a custom Python node, but I don't know how that would work. Adding Stefan in case he has any ideas.

    Sorry I couldn't be more help.
