When I do playback from timeline, the audio sounds pretty good, but when I export it, I have a lot of variance on volume, etc. So I decided to try Normalize and Compressor on the entire audio track, which consists of many short voice over clips.
When I export to either a mp5 or mov file, the audio goes mute. I feel I’m not correctly applying the filter, but from what I have watched and read, it looks correct.
I clicked on the track header for highlight the entire track and then added the filters. I thought this would cover all audio tracks… however, I do note that if I do this and then go back into one individual audio clip, it doesn’t look like the filters have been applied. (Not sure if it should, but it doesn’t.)
I’m not sure how to solve this problem.
Perhaps related (perhaps not?). When I add a video clip and I mute the video (so that my voice over track will play without interference from video audio, IF the video has a long pause at the front, then it impacts my voice over (basically mutes my voice over, but since it is a pause on the front of the video, I end up with dead air.). I work around this by clipping the pause from the video, but not sure why this happens.
Anyway, maybe too many questions in one post. Most important is trying to get the exported audio to sound correct.
Thanks very much for any help!
