If you can, get yourself a camera with XLR inputs. This way you could a)plug into an output of the house audio for a clean feed or b)get a good boom mic and place/point it as close to the action as possible. This way the audio and video are always in sync and recorded on the same source. If you really want them on two separate sources, a lip sync check should be established in the beginning or end of the recording--a clap, 10 count, clapboard, etc. I'm a video editor and there's not many things more frustrating than having the sync off. There are a myriad of devices that will record audio digitally so you have only to import the file and plug it into whatever editing software you have to join the video and audio. Again, a lip sync check will make life a lot easier for you when doing things seperatly. Your best bet, a camera with XLR inputs.
I have a home audio recording studio and I would like to start making video recordings of performances. As usual, I have a very low budget, and I'm totally new to video recording. Basically what I want to do is record the audio performance through my computer software, and have video recording simultaneously so it's synced up nicely. Can anyone walk me through the standard recording process? Thanks, Joe.
