Urgent question, I have a wav file with correct delivery audio levels etc. applied to it that I need to mix with animation in After Effects. My question is do I need to set the levels again in After Effects (the required specs for delivery were -12db) if this is already done to the wav in the audio program, or am I good to go rendering it out with the default level of 0db? Thanks a lot in advance!
If your audio file is correct and you don't make any level changes in After Effects then the render will be identical and less you manually foul something up in the render settings. Basically, you have to do something intentionally to change the audio levels.
If you leave your audio untouched (at 0db) in After Effects it will simply "pass through" and remain unchanged in your output files. Ensure your output settings perfectly match your source settings (i.e. 16 bit 48Khz).
Thanks for the quick reply guys, it's much appreciated!
I figured out this might be the case but better check to be sure and get it right..
