SmartMix Audio newbie - Results not happy

Hello, Is it possible to add a "steady/constant"  low volume  background sound track across all my clips, and only have it be louder for the  beginning and ending of my movie? In Apple's iMovie app, once you insert a background track it will automatically play it louder in the beginning and ending, but the track stays low and steady in the mid portion of the movie. That is what I want. Can I achieve this in Adobe Premiere Elements without having to adjust the levels manually for each clip? I tried SmartMix and it seems to  "intelligently"  try to change the background track levels across the entire movie and the results have not been very satisfactory with my background music going up and down too often and annoying. Thanks!

It sounds like Smart Mix is doing exactly what it's supposed to be doing. Kind of unfair to be annoyed with it for that.

You can certainly set up something like you're wanting to do using audio keyframes. Do you know how to use them?

Hi Steve, I just looked up keyframes and viewed a few videos. I was not aware of keyframes and now I think I can take it from here. Thanks!
