Hell guys, I have been doing a lot of green screen commercials and need to find a better to get the actor in and out. Heres a little more info.
I use a t2i for video and use a rhode nt3 (straight into cubase) for audio. I then edit the audio and bring both into motion, sync audio then go about making my commercial.
Its not that bad but as you can see if the actore makes a mistake we have to stop and re record from the start.
My options are:
1) Record straight to the SD card but then i lose a lot of sound control through cubase
2) Higher better actors but might not solve the problem
3) find a video editor that will allow me to link the audio so i can make the cuts then export the audio back to cubase.
Use Singular Software DualEyes [link] to make syncing the audio back to the video a snap. It analyzes your high-quality, separate sound files and matches them with the on-camera audio in your video files for sync, then creates new movies with the video and good audio. You could take the synced files directly into the next step of your workflow.
[Joey Foreman]"You have Motion, so you have Final Cut Pro. That one's pretty good for syncing material."
I'm with Joey. Record/sweeten in Cubase. Cut in FCP. Composite in AE (this is the AE forum, after all) or Motion.
