I want to play an audio clip for the whole timeline when there are layers with separate timelines

Nov 12, 2020

I have a slide with one base layer and 4 other layers. I have an audio clip that describes all the information on the 4 layers. I want the audio clip to play throughout the display of the layers. I tried putting the audio clip in the base layer but I couldn't figure out how to do it. I put it on layer one but it doesn't play. When I first recorded the audio clip it was placed above layer 4 and played at the end. What knowledge do I need to solve this problem, or do I have to break up my audio and put the parts on to each layer.

Thanks is advance to anyone who can answer.

Hi James,

Thanks for reaching out and sharing what you are working on with your project file.

I'm curious how you have your Slide Layer Properties set? If you do not pause the timeline of the base layer and have accommodated the timing for all of the slide layers, then the audio should continue to play.

With your permission, I'd like to take a look at your project file to investigate what's happening. You can share it publicly here, or send it to me privately by uploading it here. I'll delete it when I'm done troubleshooting.
