Removing 'hiss' From A Video File

Question

Hello everyone.

 

I am wondering if I can get some help with a query. I have the Creator 2012 Pro suite and I was wondering if it was possible to remove background hiss from the sound on a video file.

 

I transferred an old vhs tape to DVD, then ripped the DVD into a high quality .avi file. There is hiss in the audio and it's quite loud and distracting in some parts and I was wondering if this can be removed without destroying or harming the audio on the video file completely.

 

If someone can help me by giving step-by-step instructions, I would be ever so greatful. I have tried looking in the help folders in the software itself, but I couldn't see anything that was making any sense to me.

 

Thank you for your time.

Dear Peoples-Poet:

 

First of all... let's hear some of your poetry.

 

Second, and maybe best of all: YES. There is a way to remove background noise.... like HISS from a recording. As a matter of fact - there is an excellent step-by-step video tutorial on just this subject.

 

Open up Roxio Creator. At the bottom of the page you will see the tab: LEARNING CENTER. Click that and it will take you to the LEARNING CENTER home page. Click the MUSIC/AUDIO tab and the very first video tutorial you will see is: "Improving Audio Quality with VideoWave's Audio Editor."

 

It works! Post back and let us know how it goes for you!

Re the poetry, you don't want to hear/read it, it's usually obscene and incredibly dreadful, but that's the whole point of it. I excel at being awful.

 

Re the help on the vid. Thanks, I will check it out, But how does working with an audio section in the software help with the video file? Will I have to separate the two (the audio from the video) and then try to piece them together again? Won't it end up terribly out of sync if I have to do that?

You won't have to re-sync audio and video. The audio track stays "married" to the video track when you use the audio editor function in VideoWave. Just follow the video tutorial. It explains it beautifully and it works!!

 

Give it a try, People's Poet and post back to let me know how it works for you!
