Re: Workflow for 20 hours worth of interviews?

Curious, are these actual video tapes, or audio cassette tapes we're discussing?

Thanks

Jeff

Audio cassette tapes. So not the best sound quality. They may have video somewhere. She is still gathering material from other relatives.
I think this woman passed away in the 90s, when video was less ubiquitous than today, with video on every smartphone.

Actually, IMHO, it's easier to put together a nice video from 30 minutes of culled audiotape and a few hundred photos than it is to try and find 2 seconds at a time of stable video that's shot in the correct orientation from a cell phone. I think that's a blessing.

For sure...
The audio doesn't appear to be clipped, at least not on tape one, so that's a good sign.
