    Hey, all you audio experts!

    Recently, I made a video on the difference between codecs and containers, because it came up in these forums a lot and there seemed to be a lot of confusion.

    And I just thought that it might be a good idea to do something similar for digital audio. Many filmmakers know very little about audio (sadly), and I think it should make for a helpful topic.

    Here is where you come in. I know all (well, most) there is to know about digital audio, but I want opinions on what should definitely be included and what should not be dealt with to keep the video at a reasonable length.

    I have some ideas already, but I would like your opinions as uninfluenced as possible. :)

    So there you go: Shoot!

    I just watched it, thanks a lot for it :)

    It's a shame nobody has replied to this post with suggestions (At least, I can't see anything).

    Oh well, very useful, thanks!

    For anyone who's just seen this post, here's the video:

    Great resource for those wanting to know more(MUCH more!) about audio for video where it counts the most, the initial capture:

    JWSound

    The site is run by Jeff Wexler C.A.S., an extremely accomplished Production Sound Mixer who has worked on many features, most recently "42".

    Pretty good video overview BTW!

    Thanks for all the kind words. I am actually not very happy with the final product. I should have cut down the middle part on digitalization. But I don't have a lot of free time right now and wanted to upload it, because it still contains some valid information.

    Wow. I did not know this site, but it's actually pretty cool. Thanks.

    You're welcome.

    I could(and often do) spend hours on there. Great resource.
