I’ve rendered 12 songs from the montage from wav [88.2k/24 bit] to mp3 [44/16]. I then wish to do some fade in/out’s on the mp3’s in the audio workspace. Whenever I save the files however, the dialog box asks me to encode the mp3’s using whatever encoding I wish. I saw this blurb in the help files that said they are temporary wav files;
Note that when you open an MPEG compressed file in WaveLab, the file is converted to a temporary wave file that is much larger than the original compressed file, so make sure that you have enough free space on your hard disk when opening MPEG compressed files. On saving, the temporary wave file is converted back to MP3, so from a user perspective the file handling is transparent apart from the size difference mentioned above.
However, after I have saved the mp3’s, the file I had just saved with the fade in/fade out’s still shows as being unsaved (* sign to the right of filename). The mp3 encoding dialog box comes up again…So how do I save these
mp3 files with the fade in/out’s?
