Camtasia lower track volume (adjust volume)
Anyone who starts producing videos – whether privately or for YouTube – will quickly realize that, in addition to good image quality, a suitable volume is also important. Very quiet and incomprehensible recordings are just as annoying as parts that are too loud and overdriven. Therefore, we would like to show you today how to lower track volume in Camtasia. This way, you can adjust the volume for each video as often as you like so that it’s consistent throughout. And so that this is not only possible with hard cuts, we will also show you a possibility for slow transitions, i.e. a fade out or fade in.
Here’s how to change the volume in Camtasia:
In this tutorial, the first steps refer to the version of Camtasia Studio 8 to get to the audio menu. In the meantime, however, this has become much easier, since you can also find the audio settings simply by clicking on the corresponding audio track. Therefore, decide for yourself at which point you want to enter the tutorial, as it is suitable for both Camtasia 10 and 8.
- Add an audio track to your sequence in Camtasia
- Click More under the clip selection window
- Select Audio
- Now you can make clips louder or softer in the audio track by clicking the edge of the green area
- Alternatively, you can also do this using the buttons in the effects window
If you want to increase or decrease the volume slowly (Fade In / Fade Out), this is done as follows
- Select the point in time at which the volume is to change and click on “Add audio point” in the effect window
- Now select the point where the change should be finished and add another audio point
- Now you can change the rear part as you like, so that the intermediate area adjusts accordingly
- As always with effects, the shorter the period, the faster the change will take place
Changing the volume is very simple, but essential if you want to achieve good results. For every user of Camtasia, this is therefore an absolute basic knowledge and tool, so that high-quality projects can be created. We hope that this tutorial has helped you and that you are now getting further with your work. Good luck!
