QUICKTIME PRO 7.2 Audio Gain when Exporting?

Posted on 2007-10-14
Last Modified: 2013-12-07
I have QuickTime Pro 7.2 and I'm trying to boost the audio gain in QuickTime Movie that a client sent me.
I can't for the life of me find any options to boost audio when exporting from QuickTime to whatever format I choose.

Any ideas? If worse comes to worse, I'll just have the client output the Quicktime movie again from Final Cut Pro with higher audio gain.

    There's a bunch of stuff you can do -- all dependant on what software you have. For instance most video editors have a 'split' function (Ulead, Premiere etc) So you split the audio, extract it and drop it into something like Audacity and use the Normalize function to boost the volume. Then drop it back in again.

    So, QuickTime Pro has no option to boost audio gain when exporting, right?

    Sorry don't know because I don't have the latest version (or any version) of QT Pro anymore (always thought it was a bit of a  toy). But there's a bit of a freebie called Multiquence by Goldwave, which will adjust the volume in Quicktime movies here:
    Here's how to use it: When you open it, it will display a blank track -- just 'right click' in that track and select 'add section' -- this takes you to your folders where you choose your .mov quicktime movie, which it drops in as two tracks (if the audio is in stereo) and a video viewer in the top window.
    Just adjust the little faders on the left of the tracks to raise or lower the volume, and then choose 'File' 'Save as Video' (don't worry it will also save your new audio). That's it

    Thanks for the link Fred. I think my best bet is to contact Apple directly and see what they say. I'm guessing at this point that there is no option in QuickTime Pro to boost audio gain before exporting.

    No luck with Apple. But, I managed to boost the audio in my DVD ripping software program then converted it to quicktime. No luck doing it right from quicktime.
