Audio loses it's dynamic range, loudness on authored DVD

Post by poonhead » Thu Sep 20, 2007 12:52 am

I have a movie edited in premiere, and in the middle everything is supposed to get extremely loud. It sounds great in premiere and even exported but once I burn it to DVD and play it on a TV, it loses that range, the volume level remains fairly constant and never gets loud as it is supposed to. Any suggestions?

Does the original footage play through a TV ok?

The audio may be peaking beyond the TV's capabilities

Yea the exported avi has the audio increase, and the mp2 that is exported from that to put on dvd still has the increase.
The movie plays fine, it's just the audio that is evened out the whole way through.

So the movie's volume is the increased volume?

If that's not the case: I'd say run it through something like Windows Movie Maker and export, then put onto a DVD and see if that works.

Answer my question :P

Also, try it on a different TV. My bedroom TV quietens down at sudden loud noises
