Join Scott Hirsch for an in-depth discussion in this video Automating volume, part of Audition: Mixing a Short Film.
At this point, this film has really come a long way.…We've pretty much fleshed out all the backgrounds, effects, music, and dialogue tracks.…Now it's time to start thinking about how we're going to mix each individual…track together to make it sound as good as possible.…When we mix our film, it's good to be aware of another view of tracks we haven't…seen yet: the Track Envelope view.…You can open the track envelopes by clicking on the little disclosure…triangle next to word Read.…As you can see, you can choose which envelopes to show under the Show Envelopes…pulldown menu, and Volume is already selected.…
This is our Volume envelope, this line that we see across the track.…If we click on the track Volume Envelope line, we'll create what's called a keyframe.…We can click to add another keyframe.…Once we have a couple of keyframes in there, we can use the next or previous…keyframe icons to move the cursor between the keyframes.…We can also click the middle icon to make a new keyframe.…We can even erase our keyframes with the Eraser tool over here.…
