The "This movie has a clean center channel!" thread (List in OP)
#81
Hello,

I was wondering if there is a list of known movies that have a pretty good mix of only dialogue and SFX on the center channel? ie. no or very little music mixed in.

An honorable mention I've discovered today...

Star Trek Into Darkness (Compendium Edition Blu-Ray)

Sadly music is pretty high in the center but all other channels are 100% free of dialogue. So removing unwanted lines is a piece of cake (Like Sulu shouting "We've got to go!" 400 times in the opening scene Big Grin ).

I am sorry, I know this is a totally noob question, but how do you remove the dialog for something like this situation where all other channels have none?

This is a great community and I am glad I found you guys, thank you.

Captain Phillips BluRay has a pretty clean center channel track. Only a little bleed through in the ending scenes.

If you edit using the 5.1 mix, it can be as simple as deleting the center track and replacing it with another channel and eq-ing it to fit the mix.

OH Right, I see what you are saying! That makes sense. But with this scenario there is no way to isolate the dialogue is there?

You just silence the center-channel during the portion where the  line you want removed is being spoken and mix it in. Unlike most mixes where the dialogue is in all channels (or the echo of it), STID's mix with the center channel removed is like a karaoke version.

I've misunderstood this whole clear centre channel thing , I was under the impression it meant I could remove musical elements while leaving sound fx and dialogue intact. TM2YC as I know you're the expert on rescoring Drive can I ask how you went about keeping the sound fx intact for instance at the end when Gosling finds Cranston murdered near the end.  Did you build your sound fx around the rescore or did you filter those that are in the film in some way??

It does mean that. A few rare movies have center surround channels free of music but sometimes there are still a few scenes where music is present and needs dealt with. I've never rescored drive so can't comment on the scene you are talking about. I did have a quick go at this one scene way back for fun (very rough) with some Hans Zimmer...

...but I was working on 'Escape from L.A.' and that was mostly 100% clean of music in the center channel except a few moments like when a car goes past with the radio on and it's still pretty loud in the mix.
