Audio Tips for After Effects

in this lesson. I want to talk about working with audio in after effects. Now my first piece of advice is that you really shouldn't be doing a lot of audio editing in after effects while it's possible it's going to be a lot easier to edit audio in a program like premiere pro. Or if you're doing more advanced editing in adobe audition but you can do some audio editing in after effects. The first thing you want to know though is when you have a clip that has audio on your timeline, pressing L will bring up the audio levels. So this is a slider for the decibel level which is the way that you basically calculate the loudness of your your audio in video editing. And so you can decrease by dragging to the left or right. This is also key frame a ble so you can decrease, set your audio level and then bring it down or up for specific points. And then you can also drop down the wave form to see the waveform of your audio. Another quick way to get to the waveform is by pressing L. L. On your keyb...

oard quickly and that just brings up the audio and then l again will bring up audio levels and then again closing it down. And so those are basically the two things I want to talk to you about. You also have in your effects and presets some audio effects under the audio folder so you can do things like affecting the base in trouble. You can do a high and low pass which is a basic effect. And whenever you apply any of these effects, the options will show up in your effects and effects controls panel up here and so with the high and low pass you are basically allowing the sounds either above or below a certain frequency. But I don't really want to dive too much into specific audio editing. Um because you really should be doing this in another program. If you have any questions about specific things regarding audio, please let me know. Um But you can find these effects here play around with them. But the main things again are just pressing L to bring up your audio levels and you can decrease or increase their. You also have this option just to mute audio here on the left or right. One other quick tip. If you are scrubbing through your video clip and you want to hear the audio while you're scrubbing through. Press the command key, hold that down. I know it's hard for you to hear, but by holding that down I hear the audio that would be the control key for pc users. So in after effects, one thing that I like to do with my motion graphics is make the graphics work with the audio. So when there is a change in audio, I might change the motion or move something around, especially with music. You know if you have a beat of a song, you might want to have the motion of your graphic go with the beats of a song, and so by opening up the wave form, you can see where those beats are and then you could add your motion to those specific points. So these are just some tips to keep in mind while you're working in after effects. If you have any questions, let me know otherwise we'll see you in another lesson.
