    It's more a question of what you think! How does it look to you?

    No idea as I've no idea what would be "better" in terms of helping with mental health. I found some of the music in the few bits I looked at rather annoying so that wouldn't help me sleep :)

    Size in inches is only relevant for printed material. On a computer screen it's all about ppi and 96 is about right. You now have to decide on the largest screen resolution you are likely to have it displayed on (eg 4K, 1920x1080) and design it for that. Having said that 1920x1080 wont look dreadful on a 4K screen.

    What you're looking for is something with AI enhancing (like the Topaz Labs product Video Enhance, which you may be referring to above). Basic video editors cannot introduce detail that isn't there. Until very recently doing what you're trying to do would be impossible. Now with AI, some software tries to does exactly that. How successful it is depends very much on the footage you start with, the AI driven processing involved and your own interpretation of "successful". Remembre, these will...

    Can't help I'm afraid. I use Resolve Studio and hence their Optical Flow, but I can't seem to get FCP to run on my WIndows PC ;)

    Mike I strongly recommend doing a quick test recording with both audio and visual indications. Neither tell the whole story on their own. I know whenever I try to short cut this I regret it. Record a bit and play back though headphones as well as watching the level indicators. A couple more minutes at the beginning of the session may just save you from having to re-record the whole lot. Also, if possible, (and I can see the R6 has a headphone jack) monitor the audio with headphones while...

    An excellent choice. Experiment with different mic placements and make sure you check the recording levels before going for a take. Err on the side of caution - recording too quitely can result in increased background noise, but at least this can be addressed. Recording too loud results in clipping which (like overblown highlights in video) cannot be fixed in post.

    Only in the context of what you've written above (as a turorial itself it woudn't work at all) I wouldn't sweat the videoi quality too much. The sound is pretty poor though. Forget tidying up the in camera mic. Get a mic close to the piano. Even something like a Zoom H1 will improvie on this. Syncing is really not difficult. Make a sharp nose (clap) which will create a spike in the wafeform of both the video's audio track and that of the avudio only recording - easy to line up. Having said...

    Hi, just wondered if I could ask you a question. What do you think it might come out like if I was to use wireless lappell mics when shooting scenes in a film, would it carry a similar effect as using a boom or is that a silly question. thanks. Mark

    In Vegas MS Platinum 8, have you or anyone else experienced this most annoying quirk? On one of our Platinum 8 machines, when I click "Edit Generated Media", the interface opens then seems to vanish instantly at the bottom of the "dock", never to be found. I was demonstrating this for a class of 20 students this morning and could not edit any text beyond the default words "Sample Text". What is causing this interface to disappear? I suppose I could re-load the software, but was hoping not to have to do that.

What people think

by TimStannard on 01-30-2012 at 08:02 PM
Does it really matter what other people think of your work? I'd imagine all of us want our films to be liked, but it is highly unlikely that everyone watching will form the same, or even similar opinions. Even when a whole bunch of people express a very strong opinion, it's just as likely that there will be others expressing the opposite.

I was prompted to consider this after watching and then reading reviews of th BBC's adaptation of Sebastian Faulk's novel "Birdsong". Some
