KGraham045 Posted January 31, 2018 Report Share Posted January 31, 2018 Just wanting to vent: I have a client who has reached out to me. Here is what their editor is saying/asking: “They are trying to get more audio separation from the CEO and interviewer but we only got one audio track from you and it is stereo instead of two isolated tracks.” I clearly explained that the stereo file I provided was a split mix containing 2 seperate channels “Channel 1 is a different mic and speaker than channel 2. Channel 2 is a different mic and speaker than channel 1” I explained it is a Split mix, and their editor didn’t use the proper audio (Original production sound Audio File) to edit…. I even confirmed this by having them send me an OMF and the orignal production sound file I recorded. (attached is a photo from ProTools) After telling their editor they have isolated channels. And not wanting to do post sound work for free. I got this response back. “We never had this issue before where there was such a bleed, in fact you can clearly hear both of them into each others tracks. Unfortunately this standard is unacceptable for us, we need to work with clear cut tracks with little to no “bleed”.” Here was my response: “I have troubleshooted your issue and provided plenty of explanation. If your unable to work with the files I have provided then my suggestion is to hire a post sound professional who can troubleshoot and address any issues you have.” Out of curiosity would anyone defended their work differently? Or done the post work for free to defend their work? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
