2.Any way to extract audio from a WMV?
Posted by samhogy on 3/15/2006 5:02:37 PM
I don't think this is possible on Movie Maker, but...

My camcorder has terrible sound quality, but nothing Audacity can't fix. The audio only exists as part of the WMV format, is it possible to extract this, so to speak, for editing in Audacity?

Thanks very much, I'm busy giving it a try now. You too really deserve that 'MVP' title :D

No problem! I've had a qucik go, and it's working fine. It's gonna take some work as it only seems to be filtering out the selected portions of background noise, rather than applyin the removal to the entire file. But, if thats the way it works I can live with it!!

It's also possible to keep the pixellated level the same throughout a video clip - useful if you want to pixellate for identity protection.

Posted by samhogy on 5/24/2006 1:18:15 PM
Does it add any watermarks to the footage, and can it be used to convert to DVDs (I'm not good with formats so if .mov is DVD then I'll shut up lmao)

9.Re: Audio Extracting Help
Posted by samhogy on 3/14/2006 3:49:23 PM
Is there any way to extract the audio - ie the voices - as the sound recording quality on my camcorder is poor and needs to be used in Audacity??

I use Firefox. Anyways, Rehan and Considerate Guy were helping to solve this in a different thread, and now I have got the video playing inside the TV frame, but there is a black border around the TV too!

I can't get it to work, the TV does not load. It's named correctly and stored in the right location.

Courtesy of Rehan and HittheBongo...

You'll need the PIP+ plugin obtained from Rehan's Site There is a free trial. Now, download and install that. Next, we look onto Hitthebongo's Site and download these packs. You're lucky these are in a zip file, easier to work with. Now, extract them as you would a normal zip file. It should come up ...

Posted by samhogy on 12/6/2006 10:21:38 AM
OK, best bet is to get a picture of it off the internet. On an image-editing program like Fireworks or Photoshop, make the centre (where James Bond stands) completely transparent.

Then, save it as "bond.png" into the AddOnTFX folder.

Copy and paste the following XML code into Notepad, and save as "bond.xml" (type that exactly as your filename) into the AddOnTFX folder.

You're in luck, I made a Particle Illusion file with rain falling.

Download it from here

Now you need the "Comp A Add B Transition" this can be found below:

17.External Sound Recorder
Posted by samhogy on 6/26/2009 8:40:14 AM
Hey guys,

I'm looking to get a new camcorder, and as a result I'd also like to find some device that can be used to externally record sound (eg dictaphone, DAT, or minidisc).

I'm not looking to spend a considerable amount of money that I don't have on this; just need something with an acceptable quality, for a reasonably cheap price.

Any advice/recommendations?

18.Re: External Sound Recorder
Posted by samhogy on 7/3/2009 9:47:45 AM
Probably no more than £50 for the external sound recorder. The camera is £150.

Hey - I managed to do this using the desaturation effect above and the filters at www.danielfx.moo.no - check out my demo video here:


Once again I must stress how vital it is that you try not to get any sky in the shot as it will not change - although getting a tiny bit of sky looks great for a twilight scene. I'm sure this can be improved on by using the light filter in Ulead, by creating a silver light (moonlight) with a blue ...

Posted by samhogy on 6/14/2006 4:49:55 PM
I asked a question about this on the other thread - but forgot to mention thanks a bunch for this! I've been searching every nook and cranny trying to find this - thanks to you I can now head along with my grand masterplan of turning a day clip into a night clip!
21.Re: Desaturation
Posted by samhogy on 6/15/2006 10:47:46 AM
If you desaturate a bit, and add a blue filter (im still working on the most suitable hex value for this), then you can change the atmosphere of your shot and make it appear like night-time. Of course, as soon as you get a part of the sky in your clip you're essentially nackered, and the effect will just look like a twilight shot.
