Well. To me "dubbing" was from English to Spanish. "Looping" or ADR (automatic dialogue replacement) are the terms I think we use to use. But hell it was a long time ago. Terms change meanings. It's always fun getting it right.

Hello there! I am writing you since you seem to know a little bit of dubbing.

I am a student of audiovisual translation (eng>spa latam). I am finishing my master’s degree on media localization and I need to dub a short film for my final assignment.

The director of the short gave me the master video and is up to me add the voices in spanish.

The university suggested me to work with Videopad (which is a free software) but the final quality of the audio decreases too much.

Here come my questions:

Would you reccomend the Vegas Movie Studio software to do this kind of job without compromising too much the quality of the audio?

Which methods would you use to record the audio? Can I see the video on the screen of this software as I record the voices?

Since I need to dub, I need to see the movements of the mouths at the same time of recording.

I have seen the ProTools software and it is amazing. You can record the voices and relocate them in the video to fit the mouths (pretty awesome).

But I am a student. I cannot afford +200 $ for a single use in my case.

Thank you so much and thank you for your patience in this long post

I suggest you do a short-term rental of Vegas Pro 365, that gives you all the features of the pro version of Movie Studio, and you are only obligated to pay for it for the months you choose to use it.

Vegas is a fully featured digital audio workstation, you can record live audio into it while it previews video from the video tracks, so it is great for what you are after. It also supports VST plugins that you can use for compression, sidechain compression (automatic ducking of the background audio levels when speech starts, you will need a third party sidechain compressor for this, but I think you can get one free.), and all the other EQ/compression/noise gate/noise reduction stuff you'll need to get a top quality product.

While Vegas Pro is worth a look, live audio recording while synchronously playbacking video can also be done with Movie Studio. Just put your video (including audio) in one (pair of) track(s), have an empty audio track available, arm this empty audio track for recording and start recording.

Re Marco.'s comment above, be sure to consider only the Platinum version of Vegas Movie Studio. The basic MS 15 and 16 versions seem to have a bit of a bug regarding the Record button, discussed in this thread elsewhere. It can be worked around there, but Platinum has much more features and costs only a bit more.

By the way ‚Äď even in Movie Studio (Platinum) you can do looped punch-in recordings with pre- and post-roll, which I find is a real professional audio recording feature and which is very useful for lip-synch recordings.
So you could use an Empty Event, set a loop-region around it which defines the pre- and post-roll, then when you start recording, each loop-cycle will add another recording Take into the Empty Event and in the end you just select the best one.

Yes, it would be cool to see at least some version of the .veg. I've been playing around with it and now realize that as a track level motion effect, you can animate a plane until it's flat, then simply put in another media on the timeline and it will pick up seamlessly from where the last clip left off. But I'm sure there's more going on than that.
