I was looking through the Audio filters for a Volume Automation / Envelope of some sort to enable quick, and versatile adjustments of audio levels, and - unless I am wrong - see there is nothing like this.
Are there any plans to introduce Volume Automation?
The current ‘gross’ way of effecting audio potentially requires manually splitting the audio clip in many places, if one wants to vary the audio volume at quite a few different points, and having to do things this way is extremely cumbersome.
I am planning on sticking with Shotcut as my video editor for now, and my workaround will be editing audio in my DAW (Reaper), and re-importing the clip to Shotcut.
However, I can imagine this might become a deal-breaker eventually, especially considering that other video editing programs have this capability, and that the workflow and methodology of using a volume envelope is so intuitive, quick and easy.
I saw one other post from 2019 in which someone was talking about using keyframes to effect the audio, and while that sounds good in theory, the poster seemed to find it a less-than-ideal solution.
