Voice-over dubbing arrangement:
From now on until submission deadline (May 7, 2012), a set of voice-recording equipment is available in the Post-Production Suite. It includes a lip mic, a cable and a Panasonic camera.
You can use these equipment for voice-over dubbing. Please return them to the original place properly and turn off equipment after use.
Please bring your own earphones to monitor the audio.
You can record your voice in the area outside the Reading Room.
2. Procedure of VO dubbing
i. Connect lip mic to Input 1 of the camera.
ii. Tune the input 1 gain all the way up.
iii. Place the lip mic on the side of your lips (Don’t place it right in front of your mouth to avoid popping).
iv. Insert a tape and record as usual. Speak as loudly (and naturally) as possible.
v. Monitor the audio meter and fine tune to get the best level.
vi. Capture the voice in the same way as capturing video footage. In ‘Log and Capture’ window, disable ‘video capture’ and ‘audio CH2′ under ‘clip settings’. Remember to revert the settings when capturing video.
3. Tips for VO dubbing
i. Speak loudly but naturally.
ii. The way to read the audio meter on Panasonic: The signal occasionally peaks in the red area (with about 2 red blocks), that’s equivalent to -12dB in FCP.
iii. Don’t use Sony A1 which doesn’t work well with the lip mic.
