I use SVMSv10 for most of my Edits and this includes tweaking the audio-levels. Whilst this can be done crudely using the track-sliders and the individual clips' "Gain". It is rarely useful where dialogue is recorded, say with more than one person.
This means that the "rubber-banding" (Sony= Volume), =where points are made to create changes in levels and can be slid-about to overcome excessive high audio, or where a boost is needed.
When Editing, I do find I may need to cut clips after the above level adjusts are in place. The snag appears to be that the "volume" points are not anchored to the clip, so when I cut, the volume points are out of place. This means a lengthy rejigging of the whole track and all the volume-points....Arrgh!
Is there a way to overcome this rather inconvenient feature? It's possible I'm not using this feature correctly, but as it works in other respects, I'm supposing this is a "feature".
If I had the software designer's pencil, I'd make an anchor that attached itself to each clip, so even deleting a clip would not affect those levels set on the neighbouring clips.
Without this, the "volume" feature appears to be somewhat clunky - what do other do to eliminate this problem?
However, if I was given a "wish" then I'd have a magic line that allowed one to apply AGC to audio-clips such that the passages could be varied so as to be even-volume (whatever the recorded level) - or so as to make the variations even more extreme - but the more interesting ability might be to swing a clips' (audio)properties between these extremes - perhaps being identified by a colour change.
I don't find "Normalise" really does it for me, esp. with two speakers where one is mumbling/shouting
