Take Control of Your Audio—Keyframing Audio in Media Composer

By in Tutorial Thursday, Video Editing

Some people perceive the process of editing audio in Avid Media Composer as an arduous process and would rather go to another program dedicated solely to audio, such as Pro Tools. In this tutorial, you will learn how to use keyframes to manipulate different parts of the audio tracks in Media Composer.  I also show how you can use the fast menu to make it easier to see which portions of your audio track are louder and quieter.
