Supply the original footage plus a separate audio file processed as you wish.
Note: RAW (capitalised) implies the footage is RAW ( a specialised form of image).
Your camera does not shoot RAW Video
Well they called it RAW but means unchanged from the camera. Could call it raw then.
In some cases I am replacing the audio wiht wind, airplanes, sirens, talking with silence. So if they can't separate the audio or remove it, supplying an additional one wouldn't help. If it was to match to a singing bird then there might be synchronization problems.
So now I used a audio processing software, Cubase, which allows one to replace the audio in a video file. I replaced one with silence, and the same result. In Windows Media Player there is no video, only sound - but in this case no sound either because it is silence. So the file is still changed to not play in WMP. In Photoshop CS6 the video plays all right. Since they want the video for podcasts it should probably be able to play video with WMP.
1. Windows Media Player can't normally playback DVCPRO media files. Hence, if you're targeting exactly WMP, use another file format.
2. Photoshop may not simply playback DVCPRO in real time. Consequently, jerky and out of sync playback.
3. If your client is not over obsessed with some mathematical quality loss, export your file with H.264 HDTV preset and you should be fine. If he is, you generally need to mux original video with edited audio, for which Adobe tools are not designed. If you can't successfully mux your audio with original video via Cubase, try to nail down the issue:
- whether you can playback original footages in WMP?
- whether muxing into another container (e.g. MP4 via ffmpeg or ffmbc) solves the issue?
