Cutting dead space out of video
on Dec 10, 2010 at 2:40:01 am

So I filmed a professor in a classroom teaching full day classes for an entire week (LOTS of video!) The client just wants me to drop in the slides from the presentation (done) and cut out dead space in the video where he isn't speaking. I was wondering if perhaps there is a plugin or a feature already in FCP that will mark, or even systematically cut out video where there is silence, or where the subject is not talking. He wore a lav for the whole week and there is little to no noise in the audio track. I have been just looking through the audio and doing it by hand, but if there is a way I could knock this out quicker, that'd be stellar. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

There is not yet a plugin or filter that replaces the human at the controls of FCP. Why the heck would they pay you if all you had to do was apply a filter?
