It sounds (no pun intended) like Normalization is being applied. Do not have PrE 8, but it seems that there is a new Normalization Effect ("Smart Audio?"), that might be automatically applied. Cannot recall what the exact name is, but recall seeing Steve mention it, or something similar. I would assume that there would be not Effects, that could not be switched OFF. Wish my memory was better, and i also might be confusing something else added to PrE 8.
Unless you applied Smart Mix, this will not happen automatically, Mika.
Do you see little yellow diamonds and adjustments in the audio tracks of your movie on the timeline?
They would be indication that some adjustments have been made.
And, if so, they can be easily removed.
Bill and Steve,
Thanks again your tips. I checked those things you mentioned. I haven't applied smart mix and that gain effect seem to come after finalizing only. So when playing on the timeline everything seems to be ok. I need to research what audio settings would suite best for this kind of dynamic music. But I am quite sure this problem appears on finalizing (share) project.
ps. I tried to finalize it to a wmv
Ok, problem is solved!
So it wasn't Pre8 fault at all as you pointed out. I tried different output settings and all files had the same problem when playing with KM-player. So then I tried to play those files (5 different at that point) with windows media player and--NO PROBLEM.
So it seems that KM-player has some kind of built in auto gain system. But I am not going to study it now.
Glad I could help, Mika!
