am i missing something?
Colleague showing me his FCPX
I noted that his audio clips in "event browser"? were showing higher on audio meters when played in browser, than in timeline.
We recorded a tone at -16db on a Tascam deck and plays at -16 via browser but at -21 on timeline...
Should he be worried/ change a setting somewhere? or as long as it sounds ok (adjusted if necessary), it is ok....?
I've just realised that we recorded a MONO track at -16db and the timeline is splitting it across R and L hence drop off of db...
Tascam also put out an additional track as a STEREO mix - when this played on timeline, L meter indicates the recorded -16db, R at zero.
Probably a workflow issue here, can we record at what we feel is an appropriate level (safely in between Tascam's gudelines on Recording screen - lower guide at -16db upper guideline at 0db)
Edit (in MONO ) on timeline with peak of approx -18db and doubling up audio track at end of project to achieve a safe -12db level?
Sound is a whole new ball game - both from a photographic background - making in-house training vids which are fit for purpose
but having invested in a Canon 5DIII hoping to raise our game considerably.
Lighting, framing - we're comfortable - but we're faffing about with audio....
