Lesson 5. Horror Festival Ad > Fine-tuning the audio

Fine-tuning the audio

After adding several audio clips to your project, you'll adjust them by using the Audio palette and then you'll add a cross-fade.

  1. Activate the Project window, right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac OS) in the Project window, and choose Import > Footage Files. Select Bass.mov and click Open. Select ScrAud.mov, click Open, and then click Done.

  2. Set the current time to 00:00, Ctrl/Command-click ScrAud.mov to deselect it, and then drag Bass.mov from the Project window into the Final Comp's Time Layout window.

    This audio gives a nice, foreboding bass growl to introduce the piece. To prevent distortion in the mix, you'll adjust the level of Bass.mov down to about -2.50 decibels (dB).

  3. Click the tab for the Audio palette, make sure the Bass.mov layer is selected, and then drag the middle slider down to -2.50 decibels (dB). You may have to expand the window vertically to drag more precisely.

  4. Now that you're done working with the Bass.mov layer, move it out of the way by dragging it down to the bottom of the layer stack in the Time Layout window.

  5. Next, set the current time to 13:03, and drag ScrAud.mov into the Time Layout window. Adjust the volume of the audio down to about -4.00 dB.
