In this short tip I’ll explain how to render your animation to a video with audio, as well as mention a couple useful features to stabilize and improve play-back in the viewport.
A sort of summary:
- Add your scene into the Video Sequence Editor (VSE)
- Add your audio into the VSE
- Line them up at frame 1
- Choose a suitable video codec (Recommended: H.264)
- Choose a suitable audio codec (Recommended: MP3)
- Render animation! (Hotkey: Ctrl+F12)
