Lesson 21. Finishing and Outputting > Finishing Audio and Video

Finishing Audio and Video

During the editing process, you often deal with audio and video from different sources that were recorded at different levels and under different conditions. Perhaps you were given a narration recorded in a studio and ambient sound recorded in the field. Or you worked with some footage shot indoors at night and some outdoors in the bright sunlight. After you've made your creative decisions and finished editing your sequence, you can turn your attention to manipulating the video and audio so that all of the individual clips work together as a whole.

The video and audio levels should not be too high or too low. As you know, audio levels over 0 dB can create a distorted sound. And high video levels may result in video that is not broadcast safe, meaning it exceeds the limits of the FCC standards.
