Hi all I have a question about sound effects added in post production.
In a lot of films I have seen that have a lot of sound added after (punches, kicks, footsteps etc.) they seem to blend seamlessly into the scene as if they were actually made there and I'm wondering about some of the techniques that could be used to achieve this.
I'm fairly new to the filmmaking experience although I am a music studio engineer by trade, but I realise (especially now) that it gives me little advantage in this field.
Is it more to do with having a good room tone recorded on location to pad everything out or could the room tone be used to make a convolution reverb setting that the fx could be passed through to give them that natural environment feel? I've tried standard reverbs on fx over some some test footage and it helps but it still very much has the 'pasted on top' feel.
Thanks any info will help!
