    The video camera I use captures the whine from the motor inside. I know that carrying around an external microphone would be the ultimate solution to this problem, but that isn't really an option (camera doesn't have a mic port). Is there any software out there / feature in FCE that will remove this whine from the audio track?

    --Thanks.

    Soundtrack Pro can analyze your footage and take out background noise, you appear to not have Soundtrack Pro? You'lll have to play around with the effects until you get something sufficient...

    Go to the Final Cut Studio website, theres a tour under soundtrack pro on how to take out background noise (if you care).

    I don't have Pro like you have said, but is there a plug-in or effect I can download for Soundtrack Express?

    Try going through the effects, play around with them, i don't know any plug-ins for removing background noise.

    You can apply one of FC's EQ filters and try and EQ out the noise. If it's really low or really high pitched then you should be able to do it. But if it's in the mid-range of frequencies it's going to be much harder w/o noticeably effecting the audio quality.
