damn wind noise/taping

Hi,
Just finished some editing - disappointed but not a lot I can do about it - and i'm wondering how I can get it from the timeline to a video recorder?
Also, one of the things im disappointed with is the wind noise. The presenter is giving a demonstration but the noise is awful. Im guessing theres nothing I can do?

You will need to specify the NLE you are using. Different NLEs have different procedures. Generally you either 'print' or 'render' to output the finished product. If you are trying to get to VHS though you shot DV, you will either need a bridge or use the video and audio outputs on your cam.

Yeah, there's not a lot you can do after you have shot the scene. To prevent ths problem in the future you can use an acoustic sock (those fuzzy looking things you see on mic on TV). There are several manufacturers besides Lightwave

we were using a clip mic but sadly 3/4's of the way thru, the wind went nuts.

anyways i'm using Premiere: i tried to export to tape so i have it on dv but only the sound came thru?
theres also a print to video option.

ive taped to dv using imovie b4 so not quite sure y only audio is coming thru.


thanx for any help

You might be able to take some of the edge off the wind noise by applying a high pass filter. Experiment with the cutoff frequency by shifting it between 20hz - 1000hz. This won't work miracles, but might give you a bit of improvement.

I assume you're using Final Cut Pro. I programming the audio effects for the original release of what became FCP. Since
I don't run the product, look for an audio effect called a DePopper. It's a dynamic high pass filter that is designed to
reduce plosive energy from enthusiastic enunciation of
b's and p's . This filter will also help reduce "wind popping" energy, which is largely in the low frequency region.

Look for stuff called a multiband dynamics processor.
