Cleaning wind noise

    Well, I finally purchased what appears to be a decent video-editing
    package: Pinnacle Studio (v9)

    I'm doing well with it on my first project, except for one thing -
    clearing wind noise. The results I'm getting, no matter how I play
    with the settings, are very poor. I need to be able to clear/reduce
    the wind, without affecting my voice. Or do noise reduction on just
    part of a clip - what I keep ending up with is a clip where I sound
    quite hollow, then there's somewhat reduced odd-sounding wind, and my
    voice vanishes completely, or is badly broken up.

    Probably doing something wrong. Any hints? Is there a third-party
    software (cheap or free) that might do this a bit better?

    Thanks for any help.

    Any day you learn something isn't a total waste.

  2. Clearing wind noise completely without effecting the overall sound quality
    is virtually impossible. It can be made less obtrusive by cutting the lowest
    frequencies (say under 200-250 Hz) with a sound editing program but you
    cannot eliminate it entirely (I don't know if you can do this in Studio 9
    directly). The best way to avoid wind noise is at the shooting stage, use a
    good wind jammer on the mike.
