I have a clip in a series of clips with one of them having very low audio volume. I need to raise the volume to match all the rest. I need more then the +6 DB max in the Properties or Audio Mixer. I had hoped that I could type in +8.0 db in the Audio Mixer but it just defaults back to 6.0 db. I know it is good audio because when I raise it o my computer volume control it is nice and clear. How do I get around the +6.0 db max?
As I say in my books, the smartest way is to right-click on the clip on the timeline and select Audio Gain.
In version 7, you can automatically raise the audio gain by clicking the Normalize button. You can can also manually change the gain level.
Unlike increasing the volume, increasing the audio gain not only makes the audio louder, but it can make it sound fuller too.
Thank you, perfect solution. I was on page 108 of your book but Normalize is on page 104. I will have to start re reading the book, there is so much to remember.
Thanks for supporting the book, Phil! Happy moviemaking!
