ScreenFlow terms


A graphical representation of an audio signal.

What is a waveform in ScreenFlow?

A waveform in ScreenFlow is a visual representation of the audio signals or sound levels in your video editing timeline. It is typically displayed as a graph with peaks and valleys, which correspond to the loud and quiet parts of your audio respectively. This feature is particularly useful in video editing as it allows you to precisely edit your audio by visually identifying the parts where the sound is loud or quiet.

In ScreenFlow, the waveform is displayed along with the video track in the editing timeline. You can use it to align audio and video clips accurately, adjust volume levels, or remove unwanted noise. It also helps in identifying specific parts of the audio for effects or transitions. Overall, the waveform is an essential tool in ScreenFlow for effective audio editing and synchronization with video.

How to edit waveform in ScreenFlow?

To edit a waveform in ScreenFlow, you first need to import your audio file into the ScreenFlow project. Once the audio file is imported, it will appear on the timeline as a waveform. Click on the waveform to select it, and then you can start editing.

ScreenFlow provides several tools for editing waveforms. You can cut, copy, paste, and delete sections of the waveform using the standard commands in the Edit menu. You can also adjust the volume of the waveform by dragging the volume slider in the audio tab of the properties pane. If you want to apply effects to the waveform, you can do so in the audio filters tab of the properties pane. Here, you can add effects like EQ, compression, and noise reduction. Remember to always save your changes before exiting the program.

How to view waveform in ScreenFlow?

To view the waveform in ScreenFlow, you first need to have an audio clip in your timeline. Once you have an audio clip, you can view the waveform by clicking on the audio tab in the properties pane. This will open up a new window where you can see the waveform of the audio clip.

The waveform is a visual representation of the audio signal. It shows the changes in amplitude over time, which can help you to identify different parts of the audio clip. You can use the waveform to make precise edits to the audio, such as cutting out specific sections or adjusting the volume. You can also use it to synchronize the audio with the video.

Remember, the waveform is not visible by default in ScreenFlow. You need to enable it in the properties pane. If you can't see the properties pane, go to the "Window" menu and select "Show Properties Pane". Then, click on the audio tab to view the waveform.

How to use waveform for audio editing in ScreenFlow?

ScreenFlow is a powerful video editing and screen recording software that also allows you to edit audio using waveforms. To use waveform for audio editing in ScreenFlow, first, you need to import your audio file into the software. Once the file is imported, it will appear on the timeline as a waveform. This waveform represents the audio's volume levels at different points in time, allowing you to visually identify loud and quiet parts.

To edit the audio, click on the waveform to select it and then use the editing tools provided by ScreenFlow. You can cut, copy, paste, delete, or move parts of the waveform to adjust the audio. You can also use the "Audio Inspector" to adjust the volume levels, apply audio filters, and more. The changes you make to the waveform will directly affect the audio. For instance, if you cut a part of the waveform and delete it, that part of the audio will be removed. Similarly, if you increase the height of the waveform (which represents volume), the audio will become louder.
