[CinCV] Best practice? - audio editing
2009-06-01 11:59:29 GMT
Hi, All, Looking for advice and suggestions on audio editing.... I'm completing a one-hour piece, and am about to add 'incidental music' to the soundtrack. It seems to me that keyframing the audio 'fade' will be a tedious method of bringing the music levels up and down (as the dialog comes and goes, etc.) So, does anyone have an opinion on these, or other,alternatives? (1) Add 'music' tracks to the Cinelerra project, then keyframe its 'fade' function, and render all the audio at once; or (2) Render the project to an intermediate mpeg, without background music, then create a 'music' track (on, say, Audacity) and manipulate the levels in Audacity. Then, finally, layer the music track onto the mpeg with a separate pass through Cinelerra; or (3) Learn how to use 'shared tracks' (which are a total mystery to me) to do something more clever, which might involve 'compressing' the audio automagically? How would you do it? (FWIW: the rendering is to NTSC and most of the audio originates as .wav) Thanks!
