View Full Version : Audio mixer with VT-Edit

Is there a way that you can render a video clip from VT-Edit that will include within the render any changes you've made to the program with the Audio Mixer?

So I captured an hour worth of DV video, brought it into VT-edit and cut it up into eighty seperate pieces. I started messing around with the audio, then thought that I would make some global adjustments in the Audio Mixer, a piece of VT that I never used before. This seemed to fix my balance problem -- one channel sounding much higher than the other -- as well as some volume issues. After I was finished, I rendered out a clip only to discover that the changes I made to my VT-edit program with the audio mixer didn't stick. Pull up a wave file and the thing is quiet and unbalanced like before.

Reading the manual it looks like I had some misconceptions about the audio mixer. The question I now have is can I save some time and somehow render out these clips exactly the way they sound within my VT-Edit program?

Only way I know to do it is to play your project from VT-Edit and record it in a DDR (or play the project in a DDR and record into the Capture module). The Mixer is not a "part" of the project itself, it just affects VT's external output of the project if you've set it up to do so.

Any audio changes you want to show up in the render would need to be made in the VT-EDIT project itself.

Use BasicAudio.filter in Effects folder to cover whole project then adjust the balance and volume in BasicAudio.filter.
Then render project.

Thanks on that filter tip. Man, did that bail me out of a jam.
