Once your video reaches the timeline, double-clicking on it will take you to the editing menu to choose the “Audio” tab.

Increase or decrease the volume level based on which the clips should play.

Step 3: Adjust Volume and Add Keyframe

Place the pointer on the timeline where you want to add an audio keyframe. Then double-click the audio clip that will again redirect you to the Audio panel.

Now, click on the keyframe icon on the left side panel, make the volume adjustment on the timeline by dragging the volume envelope, and tapping the “OK” button.

Not only adding an audio keyframe is possible in Wondershare Filmora for Mac, but modifying or adjust the audio keyframe is possible as well.

Step 1: Modify Audio Keyframe

The easy option of modifying the audio keyframe is from the Audio panel that will navigate by double-clicking on the audio keyframe created on the timeline.

Yes, from the options provided, you can slide the parameters like pitch, equalizer, ducking, and denoise if required to modify the keyframe.

Yes, in the upcoming session, we can see how to fade audio with keyframes, but here let’s look at the other options.
