||Digital Still Cameras for QuickTime Movies, Part Two|
|Subject:||nixing audio pops & other tips|
Great Stuff! My Fuji Finepix digistill shoots 20 second clips@10fps. When putting clips together in VideoImpression 1.06 that came with camera, the "seams" between clips made audible pops on the added soundtrack (like iMovie, VI gives you 2 audio tracks for adding sound + transitions & effects) when saved in QT or DV formatt.
The solution is to turn off computer sound with soundkey or control panel & save video only component. Then put that file into QT 5 or 6 to add audio tracks & Save. "add scaled" is a neat feature of QT6 Pro-stretches your audio if need be to fit video! I grab sound with any minicassette recorder & play it into the built-in iMac mic with Audacity(freeware sound editor) open.
