Join Jason Osder for an in-depth discussion in this video Mixing dialog and music, part of Creating a Mini Documentary with Premiere Elements.
The final thing we need to do to finish our mini-documentary is mix the audio.…There's going to be a couple of steps here.…But first, we need to render everything so that it plays smoothly.…I'm going to tap Return and then wait for the render to finish.…Mixing audio involves a lot of careful listening and small adjustments.…There are several tools to use, and I want to go over some that are most…useful on this project.…
Remember, we still can't trust our ears, so the Audio Meters continue…to be important.…Next, do you remember that problem that we noticed?…Let me play it so we can see it again.…(music playing) (Female speaker: My favorite thing in the world)…(is actually being a participant in this incredibly--)…Did you notice how our voice is only on one side?…We've got a good fix for that.…
Let's apply it now.…Go to my Effects palette. Of course it's an Audio Effect I am looking for.…And the one I want is Fill from Left, because I'm only getting sound…in the left ear.…Let me apply that filter.…Now to see this clearly, I am temporarily going to lower the volume on the music…
