sound too low !

This is so odd,

I have made my edits to the video and the sound in premiere is only at -18db. I also have background music.

For some reason when I export it to adobe encore the final product is far too soft. So I tried bumping up the gain.

It is still too soft?

Wha advice do yu have for a movie track that is too low with background music and a good volumed voice over?

I trid balancing them in premiere and then exporting the 3 tracks as one file- but it is still too quiet (the interviews)- but the music and voice over are perfect.

In PPro, if you adjust volume for the Master track and set it at the proper level for the combined soundtrack/VO, then it is likely your interview track (which I assume is voice-only) will be mixed down at too low a volume.

You can either animate (keyframe) the volume changes on the Master track to bring up the interview volume, or you can create a new submix track and route the soundtrack and VO tracks to the submix, then adjust the volume of the submix to the proper levels. If you use the submix track, leave the Master track volume alone.

FWIW, for output to DVD, I set my peaks at -6 dB in PPro.
