Chapter 7. Properties and Keyframes > Viewing an Audio Waveform

Viewing an Audio Waveform

For layers containing audio, you can expand the layer outline to reveal an audio waveform display. The audio waveform is a graphical representation of the audio's left and right channels.

The shape of the waveform corresponds to the characteristics of the audio. For example, it's often possible to identify the beat of the bass drum in a song by finding peaks in the waveform. The size of the waveform corresponds to the level, or volume of the audio. Increasing the levels (by setting the Levels property or by applying an audio effect) makes the waveform taller; decreasing the levels makes the waveform shorter.
