You need to mix the tracks yoursef using a third-party
component, developed by you or found somewhere, since there
is none provided by the system.

The simplest way is to use DES (DS Editing Services). Mixing is supported by
default for audio tracks and you can adjust the levels using a "Volume
Envelope", if desired. Leave out the video group altogether.

Thank you for the information.
Can you explain more about DES? I don't know what actually it is.
Is it free to download?

Thank you for the information.
I've just checked the page and the DirectX9 Document.
And,. Here is my new question...

I think the "TimeLine" source can be a file or the GUID of a filter. But I
am using my won sound source filters and these are not registered in the
system. I'm loading these filters by calling of
CMyFilter::CreateInstance(NULL,&hr). In this case, can I add my filters as
the sources of the "TimeLine"? I saw the method IAMTimelineObj::SetSubObject
IUnknown *newVal) is "Not supported".

Thank you for your advise.

Yes, however, you could use IAMTimelineObj::SetSubObjectGUID. You will need
to register the filters for it to work, though.
