Matchign audio levels for multiple clips
on Jul 19, 2011 at 1:22:48 pm

Hi,
I have multiple movie clips with varying sound levels. Ideally, I would like to get the amplitude range for all the clips to be more or less the same. The "Apply Normalization Gain" isn't really getting at what I am trying to do (I'd also like to keep these movie clips as separate files). For a more visual sense, I'm trying to get the waveforms for the multiple clips to be around the same level. Can anyone help me?
Thanks!

What's wrong with manually adjusting the levels of each clip manually until they sound right? That's basic audio mixing. Why is everyone looking for the EASY button?

Damn STAPLES...

I'm working with 500+ clips. That's why I would like to do it in a batch.

My projects have between 200 and 900 clips. I mix as I edit...then fine tune later. This is all part of editing.

Perceived loudness is much more complicated than matching waveforms. Software that would try to extrapolate apparent loudness this way and match clips would not be much use in a mix environment.

Common background level is essential in dialog editing so the last thing you would want is software that changed levels clip by clip just because the speaker modulated.
