Fcp7 copy and paste without losing audio mixer level
on Nov 15, 2017 at 9:43:40 pm

I am completing a 90 minute project which contains 30 separate sequences that have been audio level to -12 dbs for dialogue. I used the tool mixer to bump the sound in almost every sequence. Is there a way to copy and paste the sequences together into a new final sequence without loosing the tool mixer levels for each individual sequence. I think this can be done by nesting all sequences together which I do not want to do. Any Ideas?
Thanks for the help in advance.

a simple copy and paste from one sequence to another will keep any effects you've added, including audio levels.

are you finding otherwise? then you have a problem,
and should maybe trash your preferences.

oh, hang on, did you adjust the MASTER LEVEL of the sequences?
yeah that won't work!
nesting will, but once you get past your simple export, presents other problems.

No it wasn't the master audio level. It was the audio mixer in tools. When I copy and past to another sequence I think the copy and paste clips keep the audio levels in the time lime but not the gain i give to all the clips from the audio mixer in tools. I think the clips dumped into the new time line takes on what ever the audio mixer is set for that sequence they have been pasted to. I will try it again. If this is true is there a work around. I would hate to have to adjust the audio for each sequence that is copy and pasted into a new final sequence. Thanks for the info.

we might be talking about the same thing.

in the mixer tool, which fader did you work?
the one marked Master, on the far right?

that affects the level of the sequence itself,
and won't travel if you copy the clips OUT of that sequence and into another one.

the faders from the left, marked A1, A2, etc affect the level of the individual clips
this levels WILL travel with the clips when you copy them.

so if you were adjusting the master level, what can you do?
not much.
if it was a simple lift by Xdb then you can just add that to your clips,
but if you were riding the level, you're a bit lost,
unless, as you suggest, you use the sequences as nests

I used the master mixir. I will now have to go into mixir and bring master to 0 for each sequence and then, as you instruct, mix each channel independently and then I will be able to copy and past without losing audio levels. Thanks for your help.
