If you split a long video using the "S" key you then have the ability to adjust the audio file for each new segment.
Example: 1 long video file split into -> A, B, C
When adjusting the green bar audio on A (when holding down) you're given the percentage of gain for that clip only.
When doing the same for B, C and the rest of your timeline split... the percentage is not provided.
if you just have 1 clip on timeline, and trim a few frames from the beginning of the clip, you'll experience the same issue; the % will no longer be seen
it's a behavior that I've found to be improper; I think it a bug, or at the minimum, bad UI display behavior
it's a behavior that I've found to be improper; I think it a bug, or at the minimum, bad UI display behaviorBut with one of those workarounds that we all love so much...
You can get the % back on each clip, but there are a few gotchas.
This works best IF you can make all you splits first so all the segments start at the 100% mark.
Of course that isn't always possible but it still doable.
To get the % to show again in the the new segment/clip add a audio point.
Then make sure to drag the point off to the far left of the segment/clip.
If you don't do this, your audio adjustment will only apply to the right of the point.
You'll have to do this on each after the split segment.
Now what if you don't make all the splits first?
You can follow the same process but if you have made a audio adjustment and then
split the track and then add a audio point to the proceeding segment/clip it will be at then % of
the previous clip.
So example: If I adjust the audio to 85% and then do a split and add a audio point to the next clip
the audio will be at 85% of the original audio.
You can also just use the gain slider on each clip but the same scenarios apply.
If you make all your splits first all the segments will start at 100%.
If you make a audio adjustment and then do a split the following segments will start
at the previous segment % adjustment.
So you'll have to remember or document the % of each clip because there will be
no % indicator on the individual segments.
Matching levels by percentage, doesn't ensure that volume levels will actually match.Even when working on the same files that have been split.
The volume leveling filter can do a good job at times. It can also distort the audio.
