I shot with a DSLR and I have been looking into getting an xlr adapter box such as the one made by Beachtek so I can use xlr mics. After thinking, I was wonder what the difference would be if I just bought an xlr to 1/8 (1/8 goes into my dslr) cable as long as my mic is powered? Thats $10 vs $300...am I missing something here?
I run a low budget wedding video business, and usually i rely on either a tape out of the church's mixer onto a cd or my built in mics to create a decent sound. What kind of mics under $100 could I buy to put on either one of my 2-camera wedding ceremony setup. Is stereo good to have?
New to the forum, i have been lurking for a couple of weeks and it seems like this group has a bunch of great talent and a great community! So for my first post I thought I would start with something that I am struggling with, I am a photographer that is adding video services for my commercial clients it seems like the two mediums have alot of natural synergy.
So I'm using Audacity for audio fixing. ???I use a directional canon DM-100 mic. ???The sound is great, picks my voice up very clearly. ???My only problem is, I dont have a sound studio, and where I film is no carpet, all walls...etc, so the sound is bouncing around a lot. ???Basically, I sum it up as "I sound like im in a bathroom" style.???
here is an audio clip of myself in the location I film, I took out the background noise, pay attention to my voice, as you can hear what im talking about.
I have a problem. I am starting on my shooting videos for weddings and because of my small budget i am using a olympus ws-300m digital voice recorder. So can add more audio quality to my videos. i am also using the camera mic (panasonic agdvx100b), but when i upload my audio file to my time line (FCP) and sync the audio whit the video file the first minutes are ok but after that i can ear the audio unsync this is the audio file upload from the digital voice recorder.
Can someone give advice
Hiya, I've recently completed training in film score techniques and looking for some experience and to put a portfolio together. I've a lot of experience with composing and music production and can be very versatile with style. I've put a little site together here http://neonmonkeystudios.com where you can hear some examples of my stuff. Please contact me at email@example.com or through the site if your interested.
After importing and syncing audio from Camera and Audio device into sequence everything is fine...but once I export into quicktime and review the exported video I notice that it is out of sync by as much as 3 seconds....but when I review in the Premiere sequence it fine...
Using Premiere Pro CS3....and clues
I have recently installed the Adobe Premiere Pro CS5, upgrading from CS4, and I am having some annoying issues with the audio. I always use HDV footage.
The problem is that when I import the footage, sometimes (and the problem is that is the issue is ramdom!):
- some parts of the video imported are muted. For eg., if a sequence is 3 minutes, maybe at minute 2 it becomes muted.
- sometimes, the audio is not synch with the video, although it has the same time lenght.
Surprisingly, the raw capture failes from the camera are OK. Good sound always.
I've been reading up on legal issues of using audio tracks (and other music) in wedding video productions. My question is this: are the songs played by a DJ service at a wedding usable in my wedding videos without violating the legal "rights" issue? I heard that if I use less than 30 seconds of the song, than there is no violation -- any comment on this?
I'm shooting a road trip documentary that relies heavily on dialogue/interaction between the two people in the car. I have wired lavaliers attached to Zoom H2 recorders for each person, as well as a Rode VideoMic Pro that will be on the dash, attached to my A-camera. Does anyone have any tips or suggestions that might help reduce road noise in the moving car? Maybe settings in the H2 or mic placement? Would the H2s record better audio than my inexpensive Audio Technica lavaliers? I have little audio experience so any help is appreciated!!
Thanks in advance,
