Let’s Edit with Media Composer – ADVANCED – Audio Ducking In-Depth

Don’t let the somewhat confusing wording in the manual deter you from using this awesome feature.

This was an interesting lesson.  When I went back and looked at the What’s New in MC 8.6 tutorial, I realized that the explanation for the Audio Ducking Advanced parameters was a little confusing, and made is not readily apparent what the functions did, and what they meant in layperson’s terms.  I also got a great question from a viewer about Audio Ducking, and whether it would work in a timeline, where you just drop in the VO track as on long (or potentially huge) clip, and just have the Audio Ducking feature work, without it seemingly using edits, as its point of reference.  Well, in this lesson, I go in-depth, and show you all the ins and outs of Audio Ducking, so using it will become like second nature to you!
