I needed a video to accompany a piece of music I made. I pictured a young Latin American couple galloping to freedom across the Andes, their long black hair flowing behind them. The budget didn't run to that so I cobbled together stock footage of clouds and mountains that I scavenged over the years, conformed them to 24p, and tried to make them look roughly like they belonged together.

@NickHope the music is very Stranger Things-ish to my ear. Makes me want to take your video and turn it into exactly that. :-)

Congratulations on leveling your text and titles in your tutorial video. Gives your ideas relevance. Now if I can pick my eyeballs up off the floor...

Audio is about 12 dB too hot for broadcast, and 6dB hot for internet best practice. All in all, a good effort.

@michael-harrison I've never watched any of that. Maybe I should! Did you mean the theme tune, or just in general?

Nice tutorial. The audio sounded OK to me (without measuring it).

michael-harrison wrote on 6/7/2020, 7:45 AM

@Musicvid Where are these internet best practices of which you speak? It's louder than I care for but it's also quieter than many talking-head videos on youtube. Although listening fresh in the morning, I realize I left the music much louder than I intended.

Eyeballs? If you're referring to my color and fx choices, those are intended to be obvious, not recommended settings :-)

@NickHope both the tune and visuals. I half expected everything to become dark and the music to drop down a key or two. If you like Sci Fi and are old enough to remember the 80's you might like Stranger Things.

Internet "best practice" (unenforced) is Apple iTunes spec, which iirc is almost exactly 6dB louder than ATSC A/85 (US Broadcast), putting it at -17 LUFS (Integrated) with True Peak at -6dBFS. Yours appeared to come in about 6 dB louder than that on Vegas meters, mostly due to the amount of master track compression I think. If you're in Europe, you're still in spec for EBU R128.

I doubt Youtube will spank you (although I hear they're starting to), but if your tuts get picked up for syndication or broadcast, there's a good chance they'll ask you to turn it down.

I'm operating on memory here, having read a white paper some time ago.

@Musicvid  ... do you think that something like iZotope's Loudness plugin within RX might help control levels for michael-harrison's YT posts?

BobMoyer wrote on 6/7/2020, 9:35 AM

I enjoyed the tutorial and learned a few new things (I usually do). I found no problems with the volume of the video as my computer/TV both have volume controls.

Spotify is -14 LUFS Integrated, -1dB/-2dB true peak, and allegedly YouTube are more or less following them now. I can't find an official Google/YouTube reference for it. I read quite a lot of references recently advising to not be afraid of mastering music between -14 and -10dB LUFS Integrated and let the streaming services turn it down if they want. Obviously you might want spoken stuff quieter than music.

VEGAS Pro has basic loudness meters these days and there are loads of free loudness metering plugins.

We should continue in a different thread if anyone wants to get into more detail on this.

Musicvid wrote on 6/7/2020, 10:31 AM

Agreed. Thanks for the current info on Spotify and Youtube. Anything helps, and I'm glad to see something is being done.

michael-harrison wrote on 6/7/2020, 10:39 AM

@Dexcon controlling the levels isn't hard with the vegas supplied tools. Getting them to a level everyone would agree on can be. Plus remembering to go through my pre-release checklist before releasing videos to the world can be a challenge sometimes.

@BobMoyer Thanks. I know I'm getting old but it's been disappointing to me to find that all of the videos on YT are "too loud"
