Default WAV file + JPEG -> YouTube

Hey guys, sorry if this is the wrong section for this but I didnt see any place that seemed to fit, nor did I find my answer in a search. I have a song (wav file) and a still image (jpeg) that I would like to combine into a video file for upload to youtube. Can I do this in reaper?

I've tried adding the image as a 2nd track but all the rendered file produces is a green screen video along with the audio.

No, you can't do this in Reaper - Reaper's video support is to allow you to work with synced audio and video so you can create an audio file that will work with your video.

You need something like iMovie or Vegas for creating a video with audio embedded.

Really? I dont know what I did then because I think I got it to work by rendering as Video: (FFmpeg encoder) Video Codec: MJPEG. I'll post a link in a bit.

Yep, worked fine.....I just had to lengthen the timeline of the image track to equal the length of the audio track. Not much too see, but I'm quite proud of the track!

Neat production.

Chorus is kinda quiet compared to the verses though. Went a bit wild on the mix compression, eh. Bridge is very quiet. Great song, but the overall loudness staging across the song is not for me.

For the first time, we paid to have it "professionally mastered". Needless to say, I dont think it was really worth it and i'll prolly continue to do it myself in the future. Sounds like they jsut applied a cookie cutter template. I wish there waws a little more dynamic to it but whatever. Im happy enough with it as is.
