Join Scott Hirsch for an in-depth discussion in this video Editing dialogue: Part two, part of Audition: Mixing a Short Film.
We're continuing our dialogue edit here for this scene.…We've gone through and made a clean boom track, and now we'll explore some…techniques for the lavalier tracks, which we plan to blend into the boom tracks…and make them a little more solid sounding.…Lavalier mics are tricky. They need to be brought in and out unnoticed,…so fading in and out of them, as we've done here, is crucial.…In addition, we'll need to talk about the negative effect blending two…microphones can have on the sound.…Because the sound is hitting the boom mic and the lavalier mic at slightly…different times in space, the closest mic--in this case the lavalier mic--…is receiving the sound slightly before the boom mic, which is a little farther away.…
The technical term for this is that the mics are slightly out of phase.…Let's listen to Dialog Track 4 where the architect's first line is on the boom only.…We'll solo that track and listen.…(Joseph: Is he sending you in here with scripted-out dialogue and everything?)…All right! That sounds okay.…
