How do most judge/control your post volume. I have noticed some bytes are very low and I lose the content point. I have raised the volume of a few of my bytes during editing but I fear them being too loud. How does one judge a good middle?
I do not have fancy equipment, mostly record using the phone mic.
I have equipment but I’m too lazy to use and I use my phone to record. Usually, I don’t mess with the volume mic.
I’m recording with my phone too but sometimes im editing voice with program. Try DavirciResolve16
its free and simple to use.
When I edit youtube videos, I try to keep things at around -6db which seems to be the average for the platform, I think also what the “professional” standard is for broadcast. It’s enough room to whisper and yell.
When I edit my Bytes, I don’t really pay attention to decibel level, I figure if everyone else is all over the place and using in-phone cameras so the user base is used to inconsistent sound.
I usually never do any audio adjustments in post. If a scene comes out sounding too loud or quiet, I just rerecord it. When it comes to audio, it’s best to record at the right volume to begin with, rather than try to fix the volume in post.
thats the move
Thank you I will look into it
I am slowly getting a little bit of hang of it- I do music bytes, and edit outside of the app. I have many that are too quiet, and a few too loud. The -6db makes some sense- I will try it.
I’d say as long as there’s no noticeable audio distortion from clipping you’re probably good. I’ve struggled with this even with equipment, as I try to match my volume levels to the levels of most content on the platform. Give your content a listen against some of your favorite creators and see if it feels particularly out of step.
I go -2
