On this video, photographer and videographer Curtis Judd takes a look at loudness normalization sound in video using the latest Premiere Pro CC.
The most recent version of Premiere Pro CC (released in December 2015) has loudness normalization feature which can be very useful. This is a great tool for making sure your video/s have a levelled sound (both inside a single video and across different videos). This isn’t just for broadcast but also even if you are just going to use your video online (don’t you hate watching a YouTube video which is way too laud or low on noise (and yes – we do had some issues with this in the past in LensVid as well).
Although the new feature is useful, if you have very different levels of sound inside the video (let’s say talking and than music) you might need to manually tweak the end result a little, just like Judd shows in the video.
On LensVid we have a very extensive section devoted to sound recording for video productions which covers both equipment and techniques here on LensVid. If you liked Judd’s video you can check out some of his other videos on this sub-section of LensVid.
