Documentary Editing: Editing Interview Sound
After the rough cut, we decided that we first wanted to edit the interview sound in any way we can to make it sound better within our film. We sent the sound file to SoundTrack Pro, where we edited the interview sound by changing the levels - trying to get rid of any buzz or atmosphere noise as much as possible as well as make the vocal levels stronger. This worked well on some of the clips, however some didn't work as well, so we either used the original or cut it from the film, if it wasn't usable.
Soundtrack pro was also used to make the atmos last longer, as well as edit our Garageband track to fit the project sound levels. We rendered the changes and sent the file back to Final Cut Pro to continue the edit.
