I'm using cs3 on a windows laptop. I have the sound files sounding just like I want them using volume keyframes. But, when I export the movie (either video and audio or just audio export) the balance of volume and keyframe changes are very different. It sounds terrible. I'm not using mp3's I'm using wav files. I tried replacing them with aif but it didn't fix it. I know it's not a sound editing program, but I need to at least be able to match up the audio which means balancing the audio files (syncing fades to video, balancing music with voice over, etc). All I have are volume keyframes, no effects. I exported to premiere pro but all the keyframes are gone and the audio won't play at all.
What's the deal???
