Wedding Audio from remote Camera

Hi All
Last week I video taped a wedding with two manned cameras and one remote. One manned cam was off to the Priests left and had the two mikes that were pinned to the groom and the Priest. The 2nd cam was in the balcony in the back of the church. The 1 remote cam was off to the priests right close by the podium where the three people did their reads. I had placed a cassett recorder on the stand to record them but found out that I only had an 1 hour tape installed so I only got :30 minutes. It ran out before the speakers did their speeches. I did however get the speeches on the remote camera as it was within 10 to 15 feet. The audio has allot of echo. I am editing with PPRO 1.5 but know very little about editing with the audio filters to remove or decrease the amount of echo. Any help would be appreciated.

Bad news, Harry. There's not a lot you can do other than apply the "reshoot filter" (and of course with a wedding that's not possible). You MIGHT be able to edit in the waveform, filling gaps in the speech where there's reverberation present with room tone but it's a long shot. Most of the time it's a lost cause to try to make a silk purse from a sow's ear.

echo filters don't exist

This is true.....but that being said.... at the end of the day what's better, no speeches or speeches with echo! If you sinc it all up well I would not be surprised if the intended viewers actually don't notice or even like it "cause of the nice echo in the church" etc.

It's not going to be easy but I'm sure you can make the best of what you (now) have to work with. Good luck!
