Also some encoding system also favor a small increase in levels, even when not required.

So, I find that limiting the audio to -6dbFS for the loudest points on the audio track works. In some cases a bit of compression so you can raise the average level. This only applys to domestic projects to stop distortion and give higher audio levels that some people like.

All the best
Hi there Mark...
nope, I recorded it hot, I did a sound test first and checked, but then when I started to record I spoke a bit louder, and becoz i didn't monitor the sound during my self interview I conn't tell.

Re: Tales of Wonders and Woes - UWOL 24

Well I am very unhappy about swimming with the sharks.
My first signup in a long time and I didn't make it.
Time slipped through my fingers like sand and now the deadline has passed.
Heck...I even had a good idea...(which will be filed away for future use)

But I am loving my new camera, so I will return...that's a promise.

Looking forward to watching everyone's entry.

Re: Tales of Wonders and Woes - UWOL 24

Yeah, I'm on the wall of shark tanks too (mixing my metaphors there I think). Too busy this time around, juggling a number of different projects.

I did some videos for a project here in Uganda though up on the Nile; a few have been posted and more will be coming along shortly. 'Mama Hamidas Story' and 'The Nile Star' were both filmed and edited by me (and sound by Shantos who did audio for 'The Source' back in UWOL 23). We had a hectic schedule and filmed about 3 to 4 different stories every day over the course of a week - it kind of exhausted me in fact, which is why I couldn't start anything for UWOL 24.

I don't want to pollute this thread with my videos; but if you go to this address you will find them:

I'm looking forward to the entries; let the games begin!

I think the sharks have too many visitors now.

Can't wait to see all the submitted entries.

Re: Tales of Wonders and Woes - UWOL 24

Well here's another one for the shark tank. I really thought i would be able to get something together for this one, but in the end, i was scrambling to get things done on the home front. With temperatures here dipping into the negative, & still a heck of a lot of painting to do on our house, i had to let this one go & concentrate my efforts on getting things done on the house.
I hope to get some time next round. Certainly things will be done on the house by then, so i won't have any excuses!!
