|Thank you all for your recommendations! |
I'm taking my first faltering steps into making short films at the moment. I think it's possible, as is said here, that finalcut just doesn't like my computer, which is irritating but not fatal.
It means I'm learning all sorts of random tricks with iMovie, though, whether I want to or not. I have a tendency to find tricksy and random things to do with programs like that, and this is no exception.
I'm after a microphone because the sound I'm getting on my Minidv camera is really, really hooky. It's not fatally bad, but good sound would increase the production by a factor of something like 4x (by my precise calculations).
The next question I have to humbly offer up, however, is what would be best to put the microphone into for roving sound recording? My current consideration is a Minidisc recorder, having seen a reporter from BBC 6 do the same. But I'm really really seeking knowledge here. So, thanks, thanks, thanks in advance, and I hope I'm not missing something cardinal...
