This is easier done in the Effect Controls window, rather than in the sequence. Select the clip you want to adjust and you'll see the volume effect.
Hi Jim, thx for your reply. I'm looking to adjust the keyframe for the track volume, but not the clip volume. When I check in the effect panel, there is nothing coming up for the track volume. When I make 2 keyframes for the track volume and adjust them by dragging, then the track volume slider moves automatically as it should, only I can't yet define the correct value for the track volume keyframe because the dragging is way to course.
Dont think what you want is possible...and FWIW...I have never seen any audio engineer enter this data numerically.
Do you have a particular reason for doing so?
yes i know usually its done manually, the reason for me is that i sometimes like to apply ease in and out at multiple places repeatedly, and it is just easy to have a very linear volume change. Also the whole process is shorter, i don't have to walk through the whole passage live, to write the track-volume. Just time A valu and time B value ... done.
The funny thing is it all works with setting keyframes for track-volume and drag them, but dragging is by far not precise enough, jumping with the values in 5 or more db uneven increments.
Well, you may not be happy with my answer, but it is the only way I know of to enter the level by typing a number.
If you set the Track Mixer for that particular track to "Write" and enter the number you want, let's say -6 dB, then you press the play button on the timeline, when you stop the playback, the keyframes will have been set to that level. You can left and right arrow to get the job done also.
You may find that you will want to move the keyframes around after doing that, and you have to be careful not to overwrite the other keyframes, but it does work.
will i then get a keyframe per frame ? or just 2 keyframes A and B ?
You only get a keyframe when you start and stop playing. But if you arrow through you get one per frame.
in fact, its a bit fiddeling and deleting excess keyframes but ... IT WORKS
