  • Sound from external Mic.

    Am I doing this right, or is there another way. I recorded an interview using an external mic going into CH-1 or 2 in the back of my camera. I captured the clip and brought it into the edius timeline.
    As I play the clip on the TLine going through my Pani svhs recorder I can select and listen to anyone of the two sound tracks,the onboard mic and the external mic. So far so good, no problems so far. In this case I only want the external mic sound to be heared... Its this bit I would like the advice on....So what I do is Alt and Enter to bring the clip properties up, Audio info tab and in my case select monaural channel 2 apply and ok. but in playback I think the sound is a little low compared to when i listened to it going through my panasonic recorder. I can increase the rubber band value ok but I'm wondering why would it seem a little lower in volume.

    Tony.

    It depends on your pan settings
    Edius 3 compat mode is copy
    Edius 4 standard is divide

          Wow. We set all our systems up to Edius 3 compat mode. I never thought of it as "copy". By choosing that are we "doubling" our sound volume? I must experiment.
          This setting has always puzzled me. We use the two mic system in the field and always bring them into the timeline as monoral 1 and monoral 2. Nothing is panned. The waveform is top and bottom for easier keyframing.

            It depends on the mapping mostly used by post house and Broadcasters.

            Let us say you have to deliver all audio on ch 1 on the recorder.

            I You have mapped A1 and A2 both to go out to ch1
            When using edius 3 compat mode
            You get 100 left and 100 right thus the sum will be to high (copy)

            In the edius 4 mode now the standard
            You get 50 left and 50 right so the sum is 100. (divide)

            Note: If the output map is that A1 goes to CH1
            and A2 is to ch2
            Then you are ok with the edius 3 mode.
            because 100 goes to CH1 and 100 goes to ch2

            It all depands on mapping of the output and the application .

                This is why I prefer to use the PanPot&Balance audio filter. But that's the nice thing about EDIUS - so many different ways to do things - pick the one that makes the most sense for you!
