    HI there !!!
    after doing the render with Adobe After Effects CS4 , listening to it with VLC(flat eq), the audio of the project is much higher in volume and the equalization is also very different(very boomy)
    How can I avoid this, some advice?
    for the audio project I've used SR 44.100 16 bit for the encodin wmv(windows media)
    thanks bye :bow:

    Is your sound encoded in the video or is that separated in another file ?

    I'm using CS6 but the version shouldn't be the issue.

    Only possible explanation I can think off is the encoder you're using ends up normalizing the audio (possibly to 0 db FS?), making it louder, and compression/eq in order to light up the file size and 'enhance' the audio (possibly a 'smile' eq, especially if you're the 'Music' mode in your render settings, by default is uses a lossy audio codec).

    Try changing the codec to a lossless one, you'll then have high quality options

    Let me know how it goes.

    thx pine !
    now the eq is ok but the audio file is still loud , i think is the track itself too loud(my fault)
    the same thing happen with Sony vegas , when I open the rendered project, the damn audio track clips
    thx again bye:bow:
