    You simply create keyframes on the audio clip.

     

    To do this, click to select an audio clip on your timeline and position the CTI over the spot you want the change to occur. Click on the Make Keyframe button on the Track Header to the left of the audio track.

     

    Create as many keyframes as you need. The higher you raise a keyframe, the louder it will be. The lower you set it, the quieter.

     

    I've got an illustrated article on Basic Keyframing on Muvipix.com.

    You can also find illustrated step by step instructions in my book, if you'd like a thorough how-to for the program.

    Thanks Steve

    I can now add the keyframes but when I try and drag the yellow line down to lower the sound, the

    Entire line for the whole clip is lowered not just the bit between the key frames.

    Also I tried to register on the muvpix web site to read your article and buy your book but

       1 after entering my details it asks for a code but none is visible despite me pressing the button

       2when trying to fill out their contact screen it again asks me to enter a code which I did but it

          Repeatedly told me it was invalid

     

    So if you have contacts there could you perhaps forward this to them to report the difficulty that I have in registering

     

    many thanks

    Michael

    Add two more Keyframes, if you wish to attenuate the Volume in the middle of an Audio Clip. It will look something like this:

    If the ramp of the Volume is not exactly where you want it to be, you can click+drag the Keyframes to exactly where they need to be.

     

    Hope this helps,

    Michael, please contact Muvipix directly, as they'll need you to contact them using the logon and e-mail address you selected to indentify you.

    I can not see how to get into the keyframe properties in PreEl ver 11, your screenshot is an earlier version.

    1. Click Adjust (or use the menu Window> Adjustments)
    2. Click Volume
    3. Click Show keyframe controls

    Initially though it is easier to Ctrl-Click directly on the audio timeline to create the keyframe points and drag them around plus raise/lower volume. You can then use the keyframe panel to fine-tune if necessary.

    I have a problem with the narrations track. It used to work well and then just got blocked. Nothin helps it's just inactive.

    Unfortunately, some users have experienced issues with the two Fixed Audio Tracks: Narration and Soundtrack. Those issues seem to be very Project-centric, and will crop up later, in a Project, that worked well for a long time - sometimes they crop up immediately in one Project, but others will be just fine.

     

    When one encounters issues, when using Narration, or Soundtrack, the workaround is to find an empty, "regular" Audio Track, say Audio 2, or Audio 3, then Move the Clips from either the Narration, or Soundtrack Audio Track. That has always fixed those Audio problems, related to the two Fixed Audio Tracks.
