Hello everyone. Been using shotcut for couple years. I play video games of many sorts. Expanding my YT channel with new game content, I recently started recording my game experience on Civilization VI.
While playing Civilization VI, the loading screen into your game, showing your chosen civlization, shows a scripted readout on the screen summarizing the Leader/Civilization you chose to play as. During this “loading screen” although you can read the words your self, an in game “VOICEOVER” is also reading it out loud to you. Same time as your hearing the in game voiceover (not my own voice), their is also orchestrated music playing in the background. Both the voiceover and the music seem equally balanced, where I can hear the voiceover, over the music, but I can hear the music along with it.
However, when I try to use that recording in ShotCut, I can barely hear the voiceover. Very lightly, the orchestrated music is too loud. I thought it would be possible to some how split the two sound waves from the recording, so I can increase the output for the voiceover, without increasing the output for the music. I did extract the sound wave from the video recording, and remove the video feed, and Export it as an MP3 file, and imported into Audacity audio/sound mixer/editor/recorder. But I can’t seem to split the two audio waves, I don’t know how.
With just the sound file alone, things I’ve tried! (on shotcut, not Audacity).
I tried adding a Limiter Filter, and increasing the Input Gain, but no matter how high I increase it, it also effects the music. I tried Adjusting the Limit bar, to bring down the music, but any potential voiceover I hear fades out even more. It seems with both audio waves still attached, anything I add for one effects both!
Obviously, increasing the Gain/Volume with said tool, effects both, still can’t hear voiceover over the music.
I haven’t tried any other tools, I still learning what they do.
I include comments about Audacity only to explain what I tried. I am not asking about ANY advice how to use audacity! TO BE CLEAR! I’m only asking here if Shotcut has any thing I can use to solve this. If anyone here is also familiar with Audacity? Feel free to cross comment any suggestions!
ANY Help is appreciated!! THANKS In advance, for the kind comments.
