OK, I'm trying to take a a video that has an audio track recorded with the onboard mic, and then sync with it some audio recorded directly from the console. Neither audio file by itself it good enough, but both can be blended together nicely
My problem is that with elements 10, the second audio file I add is really hard to see. I can tell it's there, but it's very faint, almost greyed out. In an older version of pro I had I could see all audio files equally, so syncing was a snap. Yes, the audio is strong enough, and I have expanded the timeline track with the arrow.
Is there a way to make audio 2 look like audio 1?
how's this? can you see how the audio 1 track is dark, and the audio 2 track is so light I can hardly see it?
It appears that the Amplitude of the two Audio Clips differ. When you play the Timeline with the Audio Mixer open, do those two Audio Clips show the same Levels, on the VU Meters?
To expand the upper Audio Clip, you can go to the Audio Track Header, and hover the Cursor along that line between the Audio & Video. When the Cursor changes to an equal sign with up/down arrows, click+drag up, to zoom vertically, until the Waveform of that Clip expands, to see it more clearly. Finding that exact spot, where the Cursor changes can take some hovering, but when you see the Cursor change, you know that you are there.
Volume is not the problem. the problem is visually the uppoer clip is too light to see the nuance needed to visually match the frames. When there is a big audio hit, you are supposed to be able to match te upper clip to the lower clip and get them lining up in the same frame.
When the color of the lower on is black, and the upper one is light grey (against green) it makes it very hard to see. I just want to be able to make all audio clips to look full black, like premiere used to be. I can't think of a single logical reason to have the secondary clips be impossible to see like that
Again, I'm asking why the audio time line is light grey like in the screen capture
