I have a movie project where I use normalize on all audio and video items because the recording was done with too less volume and this is the best way to have some audio in the resulting video. However when I use both normalize and audio fade in or out on one clip, there is often an uncomfortable noise. I.e. when I have fade in, the clip starts very loud and the fade in does not seem to take effect, when the fade in is finished, the audio is correctly normalized. Same thing for fade out, when I apply it, there is an audible increase in volume at the point where fade out kicks in!
I checked that this is not only in the video editor, but also happens in the resulting video if I render output, e.g. flash video (haven't tried others, let me know if there is a chance that others work).
Is there a way to combine these effects without this disturbing noise effects? Or do I apply them incorrectly somehow? Also is the order important? I.e. should I put normalize first and then fade or vice versa?
