Adjusting audio clip volume
You can change the volume of a selected video or audio clip on the timeline. This lets you change the volume of clips on a clip-by-clip basis. For example, you might have video you recorded on tape where the volume of the audio is lower where the dialog between people can barely be heard. In this situation, after you captured the audio and video in Windows Movie Maker, you could then adjust the volume of the audio in the video so the dialog can be heard.
The audio clip you can adjust the volume for can be an audio-only clip that appears on the Audio/Music track of the timeline, or it can be the audio portion of a video clip that appears on the Audio track (which can be seen when the Video track is expanded) of the timeline.
The following options appear in this dialog box.
Adjust volume level
Adjusts the volume of the selected audio clip. By default, the middle setting of the slider corresponds with the original volume level of the clip when it was imported or captured.
Drag the slider to the right to increase the volume, or drag the slider to the left to decrease the volume. When the slider is moved all the way to the left, the audio is muted and not played back. The maximum volume is 15 times the original volume of the clip.
Specifies whether the clip is muted. When this check box is selected, the audio is muted. The audio clip plays at the specified volume when this check box is cleared. If the Adjust volume level slider appears all the way to the left, this option is selected automatically.
Specifies that you want the audio clip to play at the default volume level. Any changes you made for the volume for the selected audio clip are lost.
