How loud should your video be? Explore guidelines for creating the right volume levels in your Camtasia 9 project.
- [Instructor] So, how loud should your audio be?…Let's take a look at volume levels in Camtasia,…and see if we can dispense with some of the mystery…behind this question.…Camtasia doesn't have a levels meter…like you'd find in some audio-specific editors,…so what I've done is screen-cap some clips…in Audition to give you more of a visual…of digital audio.…Before I get into this, let me give you…a quick rundown about the levels meter.…That's this here.…At the low end of this, we have negative 24 decibels,…or dB for short.…
And it tops out at zero dB.…Now, we're just going to focus on the top end,…the how loud part.…The short story is, zero dB is as loud…as digital audio can get before it starts…to clip or distort.…You don't want this to happen.…It just sounds terrible.…Okay, this first clip is from my Camtasia…for Video-Based Communication course.…It's been processed by the audio engineers…here at LinkedIn Learning at the standard level…for videos in the online learning library.…I'm going to play it for you.…
