mojave Posted October 4, 2013 Report Share Posted October 4, 2013 When analysing a full film as a wav file, once the film has finished is it possible to scroll down the waterfall to find the best bits? Once you open the wav file in Spectrum Lab you will get a file analysis settings window. Change the speed to "fast, occasional waterfall updates." Once the waterfall starts, right click the screen and turn off the Amplitude Bar. Now the entire movie will go through Spectrum Lab in about 2 minutes. You can use the pause button on the left to stop and get playback areas for further analysis. The top button on the left is the progress indicator and it rotates through several pieces of information. It will show exactly how far you are into the movie. Once you write down a timestamp, you can can then click the Continue button on the left to keep analyzing. I have found this method to be an easy way to quickly find low bass content. I then use JRiver to create the short clips by changing the playback range and using Convert Format. Sometimes I turn off any DSP when converting so I can get the original 6 or 8 channels for viewing in Audacity to see clipping or how they were mixed. This way I don't have to convert the entire movie into a multi-channel wav. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
