Equalization is to sound engineers what color is to colorists. To many editors however, messing with EQ just seems to make things worse.
Fret no longer: moviola.com’s free course in the month of June is all about equalization. You’ll learn what it is, how to adjust it using a parametric equalizer (built in to almost all NLE’s these days), and some specific tricks like equalizing different clips to help your dialog stand out.
