I have a video of a live performance that was recorded on three different cameras. One of the cameras captured the audio much better than expected, so that is the main audio track I am choosing to use.
The main portion of the audio consists of one person talking. I want to edit the audio to trim out a couple of mistakes and unnecessary parts. Then I'm going to take it, and the video that goes with it, and combine them with clips from other videos. In the end, the video currently attached to the audio will probably only be on screen for about 10% of the time.
I think I have three things I need to do before I start adding in other clips:
Edit the audio to trim out unwanted sections.
Apply effects to the audio, such filtering noise or adjusting levels and things like that.
Edit the base video so that it syncs with the audio. (By "base" video, I mean the one that came from the same camera that I'm getting the audio. Even though it will be covered by other clips most of the time, it needs to sync for when it is shown.)
So, my question is:
What order do I do these steps in?
I can see advantages and disadvantages in various combinations. Is there a standard approach, or are there considerations based on desired results?
In case it matters: I'll be doing the video editing in Kdenlive, with some audio editing done with Audacity.
