Tip #192: Faster Ways to Show the Audio Meters
One click to greater audio accuracy.
The audio meters in Final Cut are the only accurate way to measure the audio levels in your project. And, you probably display them using Window > Show in Workspace > Audio Meters. Or, um, you may just leave them open all the time.
NOTE: Or, you may be a shortcut lover like me and memorize the keyboard shortcut: Shift + Cmd + 8.
BUT… there’s an even cooler way to display the audio meters:
- Click the small audio meter icon immediately to the right of the timecode display.
- Click once to display the meters, click a second time to put them away.
Truthfully, I use this last option all the time.
