working with DVD audio - which app?
May 10th, 2011, 05:36
I've asked this question on various forums and got no responses so I really hope you guys can help! I have a friend who's paid a video company to record a couple of professional seminars - these recordings resulted in one set of 10 DVDs and another of 8 DVDs. The audio on all of them is truly horrible! There's frequent massive speaker distorting feedback, the volume levels are wildly erratic and none of it does any justice to the content, which is excellent. Basically my friend got ripped off and was quoted an enormous figure to put things right. Knowing I'm into recording and mixing music he asked what could be done . . . I have no problem with editing the audio - it'll be laborious but not technically difficult to make a big improvement. But first I need to get at the audio on these dvd's, so I can edit and re mix it and then get it back onto dvd for him. It's obviously going to be a huge project and while I'm pretty experienced with Logic Pro I've never worked with video. So please can someone give me some pointers? I've ripped the dvd's to Video_TS folders (using iSkysoft DVD Copy Pro) and now need to convert them again in order to work with the audio. What app do I use to convert and into what format? Do I use Soundtrack Pro 3 rather than Logic? I've owned Soundtrack as part of Logic Studio for ages but never had reason to open it til now. I also own DVDRemaster Pro which will hopefully help me get things into the right format to work with? Feel like I'm stumbling around in the dark here! Any help appreciated!Reply
