A lot depends on a lot.
But the easiest way to reduce the volume on a clip is to simply drag down the horizontal yellow line through runs through the audio clip.
You can also make adjustments to volume in in the Adjustments panel.
Nothing has changed in the Audio Mixer implementaion n PRE11. Could you please mention more details about all the tracks and type of audio clips used.
Thanks for your help with this problem.
I have been using PE since version 5 - a long time!. I have used Audio
Mixer for all those years but I have never had this problem before.
My video clips are AVCHD video. My stills are JPG and the soundtrack
music is MP3.
I have a slideshow which is a mixture of stills, video and soundtrack.
During "Expert" editing there is speech on Video 1 so I try to lower the
music soundtrack so that the talking can be heard. Something that I have been
doing for years. Using Audio Mixer, I lower the volume to -18 by sliding
down the volume slider. The soundtrack volume is reduced. I then replay
the clip and the sound reduction I have just carried out has been ignored
and the soundtrack reverts back to 0 as if nothing had been changed.
Can you help me please.
Not read of any issues with Audio Mixer, but MP3's have been known to cause issues. With the exception of tiny MP3 SFX files, I always convert MP3's to PCM/WAV @ 48KHz 16-bit, and use those instead.
