Sound work around for the super 8 frame by frame digitizer Wolverine Movie Maker.


Hello, this is Ron of super8tovideo on part
3 of 3 of syncing sound to video from the Wolverine MovieMaker. First I start Video Studio Pro. I always half minimize Video Studio Pro by
left single clicking here. You can come here and hover over the edges
until the double arrow appears and shrink and expand how much screen Video Studio Pro
takes up. I always leave the clips I am going to import
on the right side of the screen and then I import them. Before and I repeat before, I bring in my
video. I drag in my screen capture program with the
sound from the projector by left single clicking and holding the file and bringing it to the
time line. If this project settings box appears I say
yes to it. I right single click the clip, go up to split
audio, left single click it. The audio appeared below. Now I right single click the video and go
up to delete and left single click it. So now only the sound is left down below. I know the sound for this tutorial is way
way to low so to raise it I right single click the sound clip and go up to adjust volume
left single click it and then I typed in 500 for 5 times as loud the maximum amount Video
Studio Pro allows. If your sound is to loud and you want it lower. Put in a lower amount than 100 such as 80
for 80% as loud. I’ll put it back to 500. Click ok. I am going to the beginning of the sound clip
by clicking this arrow here. I am now going to listen until the actual
film sound starts and delete the sound before the film starts to play. I single left click on this arrow to start
the sound playing. ………….. I single left clicked on the
pause button to stop the play. I am grabbing the scrubber by left clicking
and holding it here and backing it up just a little to where the sound started, then
I left single click the scissors to split the sound clip in two. I right single click the new section of the
split clip on the left and go up and left single click delete. Click the play button to check your edit. I am coming up here to the magnification and
left holding the clip to grab the ball and moving the ball until I can see the end of
my sound clip. Now left click here next to the repeat symbol
to go to the end of the sound clip. Left click and hold the scubber here and guess
where you think the film ended and you were shutting the copy process down. Go back a little more to make sure you are
hearing the sound from the film. Now, let go of the left click. Left click the play button to listen where
the film ended. Grab the scrubber and back it up to where
the sound ended. Left click the scissors and then right click
the new portion of the clip that was split. Come up here to delete and left click it. Back the scubber up again and then left click
the play button to make sure your edit point was correct……………….. Now were are ready to bring in the video portion
copied from the Wolverine MovieMaker. First half minimize Video Studio Pro by clicking
on this square. Left click and hold the video and bring it
into the timeline. Now re-maximize Video Studio Pro by clicking
on this square. By left clicking and holding I’ll move this
sound portion to the beginning closer matching the video portions start point. Now if you notice the sound portion is much
longer than the video portion. This is because we have to change the Wolverine
speed which is 30 frames per second to 18 frames and we do that by double clicking the
video clip. If this area with color correction and speed
time lapse doesn’t come up it is because the attributes section came up instead. If you see the attributes instead. Then left click here where it says video to
bring the video section up. Left click Speed/Time Lapse highlight where
it says speed 100 and put in 60 instead. That changed it to 18 frames per second which
is what super 8 video was shot at. If you notice it also lengthened the video
to almost equal to the sound clip. This is a super 8 film of a Ronald Reagan
rally in 1984. I am going to the part where a Vietnamese
man is shouting 4 more years and a man in the crowd has both hands up with V for victory
moving in unison with 4 more years. I am going down here where the sound is and
by left clicking and holding the sound clip I am able to move it to the right and left. I listen to the clip each time moving it forward
or backwards until the sound matches the hands. I did this moving of the sound clip several
times. I then listened each time to see if they aligned. I did this till they were in unison. There now we have it. In a video like this where you do not have
people speaking where you see their lips moving clearly this one alignment will usually work. However, if you have close ups of people talking
or a seen with multiple car doors slamming through out the film that can clearly be heard. You may need to break up the video clip portion
and change the speed of the video clips a little by changing its playback speed to 61
to speed it up or 59 to slow it down. This is necessary because the video is playing
exactly at 18 frames per second the projector you copied the sound from may run at 18.1
frames per second or 17.8 frames per second cetera. You can also change the speed of the sound
by double clicking the sound clip and going to speed and putting in 101 or 99 cetera. But keep in mind when you are doing this to
sound the pitch changes and if you speed it up too much the people sound like chipmunks. To slow and there voices get very deep. That’s it for part 3. I am putting up this Ronald Reagan rally on
super8tovideo You may find it fascinating. I shows some peoples reaction to Ronald Reagan. It reminds me of peoples reaction to Donald
Trump today. There were even some left over hippies in
this film with peace and freedom party signs. There were people who thought God wants America
to rule the world. Anyway this is Ron from super8tovideo signing
off.

  1. Really enjoyed this Ron! More classic detailed instruction is what you are providing! Where can we see the Reagan footage?

  2. You should be noting down the points in the timeline(using the minutes/seconds/frames counter) to know exactly where to cut. As to synchronising sound to vision, you need a visual and audio cue. The original camera that shot the film had sound capability. A clap of the hand seen and heard by the camera is the sort of cue needed to line everything up neatly.
