Audio Meter effect/plugin somewhere?
on Mar 11, 2014 at 7:28:43 pm

I'd like to add/superimpose the audio meters (stereo or multiple meters) of the piece of music that's playing at one point in a project I'm working on. Is there such an effect or plugin, maybe? I came across this:

but if possible I'd like to avoid all the work... Thanks!

You could, in theory, Quicktime screen record the meters playing the actual music. Then, import that screen recording and just drop it in as another layer.

Do not optimize the media for the screen recording if you’re on an iMac. Your frame rate will go from around 60fps to about 5fps.

Fantastic, it works REALLY well I think. Not sure I fully understand "not optimize the media for the screen recording if you’re on an iMac" though... Please?

In FCPX you have the preference to 'optimize media', which converts it to ProRes. A screen recording will look bad if you do this for some reason. Make sense?

Ah yes, sorry, it was a bit late for me last night and half my brain was already in bed. Many thanks for your help.
