-23 LUFS is for film and TV. -13 to -15 is for internet and streaming(user content based, not netflix and hbo etc.) right ? so if you would like to have control of the facebook/vimeo/youtube video, you have to stay @ around -14LUFS on the LU-I meter.
Correct. Every outlet has its own guidelines and you have to get their specification guides to know. As far as outlets like YouTube, there is some grace (versus broadcast, Netflix, etc), because they use additional processing to normalize your files to their specs.
Cool. Yes, Nugen makes nice stuff. The multiple outputs check is great. Although in the article, I was trying to stick with tools that you already have or can be inexpensively added. It seems the Klangfreund meter/filter basically does the same, but with a less fancy UI, albeit at a single level. But an editor really needs to understand FCP's signal flow. If MasterCheck works as a plug-in, then placing it (or any other plug-in) at the wrong point in the flow would result in incorrect readings. There are also others, like iZotope RX Loudness, which work by rendering the audio. Regardless, MasterCheck is a good suggestion. Thanks.
I didn't want to criticise your piece which is brilliant as usual. Sorry if I gave that impression. Of course an editor should know FCP's signal flow. And you're right, you still need to work out where in the flow to put the plug-in.
