Volume problem with AC-3

Rendered my first project out using AC-3 tonight. I noticed it has a default "-25db dialog attenuation". I changed it to -10db thinking I could make it louder because I have heard others complain about ac-3 being too quite.

Well it is less than half of the original volume! I spent a great deal of time normalizing and adjusting all my audio levels while editng...it's a bit frusterating that the AC-3 encoder screws it all up!

My question is: 1) Shouldn't a lower attenuation # be louder? (ie changing the default -25 to -10)

and 2) If I change it to -0 would that yield the same volume levels I had in post?

Use a Gaussian Blur and Keyframes to change the "focus"

How to make a Vegas 5 script?

So,that is my question. And what is the tool for making?
Another question:
Film Looks by Magic Bullet are stored as .mbl, but when I create and save a new film look file with MB Editors via Vegas 5, then I can't see it as .mbl file. Why???

Change the dialog normalization to -31

On the PreProcessing tab, change both the Line mode profile and RF mode profile to NONE.

A script is simply a text file (which you can make with notepad) that contains the proper code to perform the desired task. Any particular type of thing you are wanting to script? I have a lot of scripting info in my newsletters.

A keyframe is a set of values for the effect at any one point in time. So if the effect needs to change over time, you make a keyframe with the first setting, move down the timeline, and then make a second keyframe with the second setting.

I explain keyframes in vol 2 #8 of my newsletter.

Edward

Is there any sort of Script that would Increase the Brightness/Contrast ratio while paying attention to the 100 IRE and 0 IRE on the Videscopes?

Basically, an automatic adjsutment but NOT going over on highlights or under onthe 0 IRE?

oops.. sorry..
another trick for a tunnel vision kinda effect is to run a radial blur.. this might be a lil more effective when conveying that feeling of blindness..

Excuse my ignorance about Vegas, I know so little about it, but how do I do this cookie cutter effect? Where is it? Thanks.

cookie cutter is in the VIDEO FX tab, grab it place it on the event you want it on.
Let me suggest that you might want to read some of the Tips and Tricks Newletters written by Edward Troxel. He has Vegas broken down in a way that explains most everything there is to know about it. Print them out and use them as a resource.

Vegas and 3 mics

I'm needing to go from 2 mic setup to 3 mics. Does Vegas & Sound Forge support a 3 or 4 mic setup? Never tried. Of course the 2 mic setup is easy. What are, if any problems with this setup?
