I have done some research into my question but am still finding it hard to grasp an overall understanding of the difference between dBFS and dBu for leveling when it comes to final mix and standards for cinematic release. I know that each country is different. In South Africa, the spec for cinematic release is -2dBFS. We use the -18dB as our 0 on the peak meter but what is dBFS? Does it mean theat we peak at -2dBFS on the peak meter with a dynamic range of about 11dB?
I hope this isn't to confusing. Thanks.
