i roughly place 6-8inch above overhead to get the quality speech from the actor. doesn't matter it visible in frame or not, later i will use adobe after effect to take out the microphone in the frame. how about u guys? how many inch you think is the limit and you don't go over that??
I DON'T KNOW HOW TO ADD COMMENT, WHEN I CLICK ADD COMMENT NOTHING CHANGE. nyway i didn't say i want to fix in post, i understand sound is important. i want to record quality sound in shooting too. if i bring the mic closer i know i can get quality sound. but let say in medium shot where the frame line is far away from actors head, if i put the mic outside the frame i am sure i cannot listen to actors voice clearly. so can i bring the mic close and make it visible in camera frame but later i use adobe after effect to take out mic, that's my question.
