I got it to work using a hinge connector in the middle of my paddle. When other objects run into paddles, they turn as expected. Video

I agree that the Neat Video plugin does a good job. Just as a reminder, like most new equipment, you will need to play with it a little to get good results. Also note, renders are very slow even with

The audio setting has to be switched to get it to work. However, based on my previous experience with BetaSP machines and Final Cut Pro, I would try switching the audio mapping to the even number of a

I have been out of the analog video world for awhile, so I would like to refresh my memory regarding blanking and closed captioning (some could say I'm blanking on blanking). Does blanking surpress th

I know is not the ideal solution, but does anybody has any recommendation for decent 5.1 headphones to monitor 5.1 surround
Re: 5.1 Headphones
by Matthew Campagna 10 years ago
Just so you know, they don't really exist. Anyone selling you 5.1 headphones is really selling you a phase cancellation network that fakes the sound. Those kinds of headphones are not reliable for mix

You could do it with Photoshop and Final Cut Pro, but this is dependent on your skills. Depends on your budget, time frame and how much you wanna learn or experience.

I've been having trouble with this horrible camcorder for two years now, and I curse myself for ever purchasing it. Final Cut could never understand the bastardized version of HDV the thing put out an

I have a HV20 and I haven't had any problems with it. I actually used it on a 26 episode, low budget, public broadcast television program and it worked great as an additional camera. I did all of my w

Short and quick answer- You can use the Broadcast Safe filter in Final Cut Pro to limit your colors for broadcast. It must be the final filter on your final output to keep all your colors within broad
audio levels for web video

Hey FCPers, I'm cutting 60 short spots for a client...all for web distribution. When editing I usually keep my audio levels in the -12 range, with nothing really peaking over -9db. I've applied these
Re: audio levels for web video
by Matthew Campagna 10 years ago
Normalizing is just an extreme limiter. Use a really good limiter and get your audio peaks as close to -1 or -2 Db on average. Some of us in the industry call this "sausaging". When you look at the wa

Re: Major Broadcast Issue
by Matthew Campagna 10 years ago
The odd HDV workflow will not have any affect on the sync downstream. If your footage is in sync when it leaves you studio, then the problem is down stream. I'm not sure about the networks, but if the

Re: Eliminating wind noise during an interview
by Matthew Campagna 10 years ago
The unfortunate truth is if you have wind, there is no way to remove it. I have been doing professional audio for over 15 years and there has never been a good answer to this issue. Wind covers so muc

For those of you who do any kind of audio work requiring a measurement of your entire program look no further. AudioLeak is a program that will go through your entire audio file and give you a few wei

Re: Old school but very creative

That was very cool. That must have taken you a couple of days and a lot of paper. The preparation alone is impressive, but the final video is awesome. Yes, I could see this technique in a commercial.

It depends on the age of your computer. Before 2003, I didn't have much luck with dual displays because the video cards I could afford did not have good power or speed. In 2003, I purchased an HP that
