What Kim Burgaard said is very true. The vocalist has a lot of control over how their voice is recorded. As I'm a much inferior vocalist to those I record, it can be difficult teaching them this technique, as you just want to get a good take. So what I end up doing is have the vocalist scream. Well, I ask them to warm up and hit the loudest levels they can. ...

Depending on the fidelity of the video you can try to do a high pass filter on the video, in essence it will sharpen edges of the scene and help bring it out. The two steps I would do: 1) De-noise it (I use the neat video plugin for after effects) 2) Run a high pass filter (photoshop has this, but not after effects). To emulate this: a) Create a ...

This is possible with the FFmpeg command ffmpeg -i input.mp4 -ss 0 -c copy -t 60 output.mp4. This would cut the video from the beginning -ss 0 to second 60 -t 60. Be aware that -ss is and offset which -t is based upon. So -ss 10 and -t 60 would result in cutting to second 70 and removing the first 10. You can use the -to option to cut at a fixed time ...

Yes, it is generally possible, but with a few limitations. h.264 uses what is known as a group of pictures. A group of pictures groups multiple frames together in a way that allows for further compression, but the entire group of pictures has to be decoded together. As such, it is only possible to cut a video stream in between groups of pictures. This is ...

There isn't really a magic "enhance" button like on CSI. If there isn't enough information to see even part of the numbers (at least a blur where they are) then it is impossible to tell what is there because the information simply was not captured. It is most likely clipping, which means that everything in that area is the maximum possible whiteness and ...

The only recent tool I know is a plugin for After Effects called Magnum - The Edit Detector. While After Effects isn't exactly the most suited program for these kind of tasks it would do what you want with some sort of control over it. You can export the resulting clips/layers in After Effects via a script like redefinery's Layer Render script (seems the ...

There unfortunately isn't enough information here to give you a definitive answer but I will try to cover the most likely bases. The first thing you need to do is determine the source of the clipping. Is it actually clipping at the recorder or are the microphones themselves clipping. Clipping occurs whenever the signal level exceeds what a particular ...

Singing with an microphone, both live and recorded, can be improved with a little technique. Compression cannot compensate for clipping and, as you point out, some singers have an incredible dynamic range. If you look closely at vocalists who regularly perform with microphones, you will notice they either move the microphone or the head to increase the ...
