After Effects Hidden Gems Weekly: Mixing Audio

September 28, 2015, 12:31 PM

After Effects offers two ways to adjust the volume of an audio layer: the Levels parameter in the Timeline, and the Stereo Mixer effect, which can be added to a layer. Levels works on a logarithmic scale to match the way sound loudness actually works in the real world; Stereo Mixer uses a linear 0-100% (and higher) scale similar to Opacity. Which one should you choose? Both, actually - but use them for different purposes.
