Hmm. it sounds really muffled or something. It was sounding pretty good in ep11. What did you do differently?

I used the default noise reduction setting instead of hum and hiss and I dialed in 1 point of negative pitch. I also wonder if part of my issue is putting my lav inside my shirt, right over my clavicle.

As far as the noise reduction, I would use as little of it as possible. A quick rule of thumb on a lot of that kind of stuff is to set it where you think it should be and then back off a tad. A little goes a long ways.

Your audio didn't sound that muffled in the videos before ep13. Were you putting the lav in the same place on the other videos too? If so, I would think it's more an issue of the noise reduction plugin. But, if you were micing a different way, I might go back to that and then reduce the noise a little there, since it was sounding pretty good, juts a little noisy.

I attach the mic to the inside of the collar of my shirt with a small safety pin (around the wire) and do not have the foam cover on it because, when I did, the audio sounded scratchy to me. The only difference between 12 and 13 was the settings on the noise reduction, so I will use the same ones as before. Did you notice a difference in the color and tone match of the different angles? In 11 or 12 I started using the grading part of resolve. I hadn't before because I was trying to change the fewest things at a time possible.

A fair number of my viewers have told me that they watch my videos on a cellphone. I edit on a 40" 4K monitor. I can reduce the size of the view (inspection) window in the editor. Do you think it is worth the time to re-screen each cut of the videos on a 5 inch display? I understand that what looks great on the big screen does not always translate to the small screen, but I'm putting out 3 videos a week with everything else I have going on in life. Time is a commodity I can't stretch.

As always, thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy schedule to help me improve my work. I appreciate it more than you will ever know.

Yeah, I thought the audio sound pretty good in ep12. So, I would probably just keep using the setting for that. And I thought the shots all looked very consistent, color-wise.

In Episode 16, you will see that I added a third camera and I can't get it to balance with the other two. Two Canons (5Ds and EOS-M) and a Sony Handicam. Of course this is because I am a total newb and don't really know what I'm doing.
