Hi
when producing a training movie, sometimes i need to add some statements using voice narration tools. after that when editing the movie, when edit my sound clip & remove a section of my sound clip, then when i hover the mouse on the edge of voice clip & raise its level to up or down, volume percentage is not shown on that sound clip anymore.  so i can't adjust all sound clips to have the same raised level

any workaround ?

if you cut off the beginning of a clip with audio, thereafter, the percentage display does not show; that is just the way the app behaves

best to adjust volume before trimming the clip

alternatively, you can use the volume adjustment in audio properties

Another option is after you do your cut, hover your cursor near the beginning  of the clip and then right-click and "add a audio point".

Click and drag the audio point to the beginning of the clip. If you don't drag the point to the beginning you will not adjust the whole clip.

With the audio point added you will be able to see the % level again.

Adjust level as needed.

This was going to be my suggestion, as I do it all the time.  Though, a short cut is you can double click on the audio line and it will add the audio point.  It's faster than right clicking and selecting add an audio point.  Double click on audio line to add audio point is your friend!  :-)

Good tip.

I should have remembered that but oh so many "tips" to remember.

You jogged my memory to another audio points tip...

To adjust just a section of the audio clip:

Make a selection with the playhead (no splitting of the video clip needed).
Hover over the green line till you  get the double headed arrow and click once.




That will add 4 audio points. Move the playhead out of the way,  then click and drag the green line up or down or adjust each audio point.
