Thanks, Sam. Here's the link to the .aiff upload:

I can send an .omf if this doesn't work. Pat DeFilippo asked the same question and used the Compressor/Limiter Audio Filter to take the edge off, but her audio may not have been as generally noisy as mine. She would also be interested in what you find.

Looking forward.

That is a difficult issue these days with cell phones being so prevalent. If you have a specific audio sample I would be glad to create a tutorial showing you the best options... which are limited.

Thank you, Sam. This is exactly what I was looking for. One "noise" that I am having trouble with is the cellphone signal reception noise that lives in the same bandwidth as the female voice. Any tips on that?

Compositing Secrets Everyone Can Use, Pt 5: Brightness

The first challenge to understanding the nature of brightness in compositing starts with remembering that we're not actually seeing color at all, but rather something of an illusion that appears to us as color! Join longtime VFX artist, editor, software developer, and business owner Simon Ubsdell for Part 5 of the best look behind the technology of compositing that you've ever seen, as he takes a look at the math behind brightness, and how to apply that to the compositing toolsets in your favorite editing, compositing, and color grading applications.

Editing Eye of the Beholder: The Art of Dungeons & Dragons

Kelley Slagle began her career in entertainment as an actor, so it’s not surprising the communal storytelling of Dungeons and Dragons caught her eye.

Creative COW Managing Editor Kylee Peña spoke to Kelley about the challenge of managing that much material into a 90-minute film, balancing indie filmmaking with the demands of a day job in video production, and the power of art to sustain a community.
