Join Scott Hirsch for an in-depth discussion in this video Automating volume, part of Pro Tools: Mixing a Short Film.
This film has really come a long way. We have 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 for a final result.…When we mix our film, it's good to be aware of another window in Pro Tools we haven't looked at yet, the Mix window.…You can bring out the Mix window by going to Window > Mix, or you can use a quick key combination Command+Equal.…The Mix window lets you see the channel strips and track volume faders for all your tracks together in one view.…
They can be a really useful reference of your levels, but we can still do most of our mixing…back in the Edit window.…Command+Equal toggles you back to that window.…Let's look at the Volume view playlist of all of our tracks.…Holding the Option, change one of the Waveform views to Volume view.…All tracks should now show volume.…If you look around here, you'll already see that some volume breakpoints have been made…
