Quick tip: Adjusting video clip audio levels in Kdenlive

By - | Views: 15,142
Kdenlive is a pretty fantastic tool for making videos. The more I use it, the more I really appreciate how powerful it is. Here's a quick tip for anyone wanting to edit videos, showing how to adjust volume in different sections of a clip.

For some, this might be extremely familiar and old news, but this isn't aimed at you. Anyone who didn't know about it, or anyone wanting to get into video editing on Linux will find this extremely useful.

Obviously you can make it a lot cleaner than what's showed, this is a quick example of how to do it.

I remember when first trying to edit videos, my how far the tools have come. I'm still learning new simple things every day and it's fantastic. Highly recommend Kdenlive. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

PhiladelphusTrue, I'd forgotten about that, but I use SimpleScreenRecorder rather than OBS Studio which apparently has a rather more complicated method to record them actually separate from each other (rather than just as separate tracks in the same video). I dunno how many people use SSR as opposed to OBS though; actually, that might make an interesting poll some time. ("What program do you use for recording/streaming?" )
I still swear by SSR+Audacity over OBS. OBS is a good program for streaming and quick desktop captures but SSR allows for a bit more tweaking and recording commentary with Audacity means I don't need to load up a file into Audacity afterwards.

See, that's what I'd be interested in a tutorial on. I currently record my voice on an old smartphone, move it to my desktop, process it in Audacity, and add it in Kdenlive, but I'd love to learn how to just simultaneously record in Audacity from my microphone (at which point I might be able to justify actually buying a decent one!).
