Film Reviews & Headlines


Hello, I am Ron from super8tovideo this is
part one of three on importing sound from a super 8 film copied by the Wolverine Movie
Maker. Part one deals with the physical hooking up
of the projector to the computer. If your film has a copper strip on the top
or bottom it should have sound on it. These two films on top have sound see how
they have copper strips on them. I said should have sound because sometimes
I forgot to turn the sound on the camera as I was filming back in the 1980s. So it is possible you’ll have similar issues,
meaning, you will have a copper strip but no sound recorded. Notice this strip here, has no copper, and
it has no capability to have sound. This is a stereo plug notice how it has these
two black lines on it. This is a mono plug notice how it has one
black line on it. There are also plugs with 3 black lines just
make sure your plug has two lines on it like this plug here or this one. Both ends on this stereo plug should be male. First I am going to show you how to do a crude
method of copying sound. You place a microphone near the speaker as
the film is playing. You will hear all the projector sounds but
these projector sounds can be minimized in video studio pro. This microphone is connected to the computer
the same way I will show you in a moment. This is not a tutorial on how to reduce the
projector sounds but here is a quick tip on how you reduce the noise. If I remember correctly, I only did this once
and that was six months ago. I think I choose New Blue hum remover. Here is how you get to the hum remover. Right click the clip, left click audio filter,
scroll down to New Blue hum remover, left click it, left click options if you want you
can fiddle with it. Then select ok, while New Blue hum remover
is highlighted click add, then click ok. Listen to the clip and see if it did not reduce
the projector sounds. If not try other filters like New Blue Cleaner. I do know when I did this six months ago it
improved the sound a lot and I am showing you how to do this in Video Studio Ultimate
10. However, I did this in Video Studio 9.5 Ultimate
so whatever filter I used I know it was in 9.5. I suspect if you have an older version of
Video Studio Pro than 9.5 the filter I used was in older versions also. Back to our hook up. What I am about to show you is how I find
my connections. I am not sure if it can hurt the computer
or sound card when unplugging and plugging in these sound cables while the computer is
on. If you want to be safe plug them in and out
with the computer off and restart it each time to be safe. I repeat I do not know if it can hurt your
computer to do this while it is on so if you damage your computer or soundcard doing what
I am about to show you, its your fault not mine. I have done this 4 or 5 times and have not
had a problem but that does not mean it is safe to do on other computers. So if you do it while the computer is on do
not blame me if you have problems. I am showing you on windows 10, come done
here to the speaker symbol at the bottom right of the screen. Right click this speaker symbol, then come
up here to recording devices left click it, and this menu appears. This stereo plug doesn’t even need to be
plugged into the projector. Watch what happens when I plug the cable in. See the red arrow disappeared but when I unplug
the cable the red arrow appears again. This input up above is a usb microphone set
up as the default device watch how it disappears when I unplug it. When I plug it back in it appears again as
the default device. Now I am doing the same thing to the soundcard
on the back of my computer just because this cord is green does not mean it goes in the
green selection. It actually goes in the blue connection. This is what happens on the screen as I plug
and unplug the cable on the back of my computer. These are the common color codes for most
sound cards Plug your stereo plug from the projector into
either of these two colors pink or blue these other colors are sound going out. I am now plugging in the stereo plug to the
projector and then into the computer its that easy once you know which plugs to put the
cable into. This is Ron of super8tovideo signing off on
part 1 of 3. Part two shows how to capture the sound using
Video Studio Pro.
