Waveform is a visual representation of the frequency waves that make a sound clip. Since waves are higher when the sound is louder or high-pitched, this allows you to see at which point in time the sound effects reach their highs and lows, and to time the action in your animatic accordingly.
Displaying waveform for stereo files:
- Do one of the following:
- In the bottom-left corner of the Timeline view, click the Menu button and select Show Waveform.
- In the top menu, select Clips > Show Waveform
- In the Timeline view, right-click anywhere on the audio track area and select Show Waveform.
