I take it back, it took out hum and took out my voice and left things being clicked, mechanial sounds, back to square one. How it removes complex things in demo videos yet can not figure out classical hum surprises me.

Jeff, here is better section, it has the breathing. Naturally amped up by putting mic in breathing hose. https://vid.me/emMS

How did you do the noise remove?

Something like this? If so I'll put down a few bullet steps for you, pretty simple if something like this is good enough.

Yes Jeff, that is quite good. What part of the program (or which part) did you use? Just as long as voice and breaths come through, that is good. I was baffled since it was so steady I could not get it out with the "auto" functions.



What need to do is apply it on all 8 hours of the video. Thank you for your help, look forward to instructions.

AudioDirector is what I used for this, basic steps below:

1) User “Restore” > “Noise Reduction” as shown in pic1
2) Follow couple of items in pic2
3) When you click next from pic2, just apply to “Entire audio content” and you should be pretty good

Perfecto, just what was looking for. I saved it as preset and used on voice part and worked just as good. There is maybe 3-4% of noise left, but what was looking for ... is just what this does.



Now just pick the Preset you did, apply to the whole video and presto done. In case I do not run down my PIP into Vixia static noise problem, this solves it.



Sorta having trouble figuring out where I went wrong, thought tried it, maybe just settings as see you bumped the 2nd slider up to 4, maybe I did not. BTW am using that English PIP thingon Ebay so can use recharageble AAAs not watch batteries. Concept great. I have some old videos I took gettingthe PIP thing to work, will review them, hopefully narrated the solution for humm into them.

For the Thread starter here, think it was what he needed to an extent too.

Great explanation is pics.



Thanks!!!

Jeff, think it was settings, as can not find better ones than yours. PD/AD has about 5-6 different tools for removing noise, do you think this is the only one that would work so well?

Funny thing is the one did not try in PD (Wind Noise) because wanted the breathes, actually does get rid of 70% of humm and leave breath sound. Works much better than the other 2 selctions. Even though its not wind.

No, what I did was not even the ideal method, it was a simple to explain method that I thought would give you acceptable results.

Not sure on your audio capability, but what you have is the classic Mains hum, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mains_hum . The ideal tool for this would have been the "Hum Removal" tool but in my opinion Audio Director has a implementation issue with this feature that takes significant user gyrations to overcome, hence why I gave you the simple to explain method. Maybe they would address the shortcoming in some version as it would be beneficial to those trying to overcome this issue.
