I think slating is VERY important on larger shoots with multiple dates, places, re-shoots, effects shots, B-Crews, etc... Think feature film size. Imagine sifting through all of your footage to find one shot or take, and nothing is labeled as fully as it could be.
I'm kinda' nauseous thinking about it.
Thanks for this great share! Haven't dug into all of these links yet, but this compilation style of article would be great to have once in a while. You know, for us slackers! :D
Clickbait stinks, we all agree. But is it really getting all up in arms about here? I highly doubt Mr. Hardy (or anybody at NFS for that matter) tried to 'trick' us into clicking this, and I doubt it was even described in that way on purpose. I mean, hell, they talk about the gear and the processes they used. It's not like this wasn't informative or up our collective filmmaker-alleys (there's a joke in there, somewhere...).
Hmm. I give them props for the crazy-easy integration (did we expect anything else from Adobe?). However, the added cost isn't feasible for me, personally-- not at that amount. Of course, for someone doing a lot of graphic design work this will be a blessing, I'm sure! Chances are I'll end up tossing it into my virtual shopping cart at one point.
Still a great tutorial. Enough to pique the curiosity of some who might not dabble in sound, but enough to be extremely helpful and always useful. I appreciate you're work, Mr. Judd! Keep on keepin' on! :)
I'm really being picky here-- but I believe that 'notching' normally refers to a super tight Q/curve. Used mainly for doing very surgical frequency removal. It might be a bit misleading, considering what the video and your article talk about is mainly larger 'bell curves'. It's always been two separate terms in my world, but maybe they're interchangeable now-a-days! Either way a great way to get started in audio mixing! :)
