I have searched for this but don't see it. I've also messed with settings and done about 25 exports to test levels. I'm new to PP so hopefully there is a simple answer. I am exporting audio and video as .mp4, AAC with settings: 128kbps, Mono, and as far as I can tell, I have all level adjustment/Normalization etc. turned off. After export, the audio is 7-10db (aprox) lower. It's an audible amount and I also import the file back to PP each time to compare the files. I mix these files in another DAW before video and of course, do not want the level to change at all during export.
Am I missing something obvious?
That doesn't sound normal. You may want to check if the volume of the track you are exporting is set at a lower decibel.
Let us know,
If I'm following you, its not. The original track is at one level, I bounce as above and it sounds lower in volume. I then import the lower volume back in to PP to check the meters against the original and that verifies that it is lower in volume.
