Editing Dialog You Recorded
Chip Beaman asked,
Do you prefer to record the dialog that you plan to edit, or does it make any difference to you at all?
I love to edit well performed, well recorded dialog. In that sense I don’t have to be the one who recorded it.
But when I record the dialog I know a lot about it, which allows me to move through audio production more effectively.Chip followed with,
When someone has recorded poorly, are you able to determine what the problems were just by listening to the recording?
Yes some are obvious, such as plosives, distortion, and noise floor. Other issues are more subtle, more difficult to figure out the cause. For example, a roomy sounding recording could be challenging room acoustics, poor mic placement, a lack of mic technique, or some combination.
