Please excuse my ignorance. I am trying to discover the best method for good audio quality for a digital video recording. I am a Public Speaker in Germany who speaks with a translator simultaneous translating beside me. We use separate microphones. I will soon begin video recording our presentations with a digital HD camera. I see three options for the audio: 1) Use 2 wireless microphones simultaneously 2) Use the boom mic to record the audio coming through the speakers 3) Edit the video using the audio recording that we now make for our podcast. If we do that, what editing software is recommended for a tight budget?
What do you recommend? Am I missing something that might be easier and better?
Your question only raises many more questions.
What mics are you using NOW? Are they YOUR mics? Or are they whatever comes with the venue?
Who is operating the camera?
What do you mean by "the boom mic"?
How do you make the current audio recording for your podcast?
If you are happy with the podcast recording, why wouldn't you simply feed that into the camera?
As Mr. Reynolds suggested, hiring an audio expert to help you set up everything may be a good investment. But if that isn't in the budget, then much more complete details are necessary to attempt to to help you here.
