I have a 7-minute news piece that I'm trying to condense down to around half the length and still tell the story. I have permission from the news agency to do this, and I know basically what parts of the video and what parts of the audio I want to use. Unfortunately they're not necessarily the SAME parts. I'm trying to figure out how to go about doing this.
The tools at my disposal are Windows Movie Maker and Pro Tools 10. The audio stuff I can nail down, it's the video part and the sync part that I'm trying to figure out. Best I can tell my workflow needs to be something like this:
* Edit the video down to the parts I want to use in Windows Movie Maker
* Import the edited video into Pro Tools
* Import the audio from the original video into a track in Pro Tools.
* Slice up the audio I want and lay it out on the track in the order I want it.
* sync audio to video. I guess I have to do this manually because I don't really know what to do here.
That last thing I'm really lost on. I have around 10 days to get this figured out. Any suggestions? Right now I'm reading Mike Thornton's Working with Video in Pro Tools
articles in SoS, and Mike is a widely known and respected tech dude. Hopefully he'll get me on the right track, but if you have experience I'm all ears.
I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.
