Is it possible to remove a certain sound out of video?

Stupid me was doing some recording and was scratching up against the microphone of the camcorder.

Is there any way to remove this sound? I could reshoot but it was kind of difficult to do. Just curious if it can be taken out

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

There is some software that will filter out unwanted sounds in video. Unfortunately, it does so by cutting out frequencies and is kind of hit or miss. If you want more info pm me.

As I know it's possible. You can use the free Audacity audio editing program.

I would highly recommend just reshooting.

You will likely spend more time trying to edit it out, researching techniques, etc. than you would to reshoot it, no matter how difficult it was to shoot.

Reshoot just the sound and edit?

After 3 hours of researching I think you are right drew

This is a night shoot so I'll have to wait until night again.

Michail: I'm a little new to audio/video editing. I was trying to upload my .mts file to Audacity but of course I needed to convert it. I've tried a couple media converters with no luck. Can you give any advice ? Programs for beginners, tutorials or etc

Thanks

Unfortunately, no. I don't have any such editing experience. I've only watched others do it. With the right converters it looked simple enough but getting the right tools is sometimes the hard part.

For a long shoot I suppose working on the audio track could get a bit difficult. If it's a blip here and there it may not be so bad.

Or use the original footage and simply change/replace the audio.

Look for iZotope software. They have tools that can remove sounds based on temporal and spectral parameters. I used it to remove coughs in the audience, during a concert. It works very well. Not cheap, but effective.
