I was one asked to make it sound "Nearer" so I turned the monitors up a bit.

Also on a London Police show The Bill "Can you make it sound like Alien"

Sadly these days we dont get to mix in Dobblie anymore

not to be confused with nat dia(DX), or source dia(DX), B roll Dia, and certainly not VO.

Sound Effects = FX
Dialogue = DX
Music = MX
Foley = FOL

Take it for what it's worth

this is actually a serious situation for us all and its surprising a language had not yet been constructed for it in the same way there is for framing (in camera) and every other aspect of film.., mise-en-sene, diagetic, ect.., its a royal pain in the butt when two people are trying to communicate but cant express their needs.

ive only been doing this a few years (at least i have a couple of broadcast credits :) ) and i have never heard of

M + E
or D * E

can i ask what they are??

M:)

Default Re: EFX vs. SFX

M+E=Music and Effects
D+E=Dialogue and Effects

Both are mix minuses, the M+E is used for international versions so they can be mixed into different languages.

The D+E is very useful for promo or spot production as a different music bed can be added if scenes are edited down to 30 or 60 sec promos.

Hope this helps.

Don't forget DME (Dialog+Music+Effects). That is a "mix minus narrator". It can also mean "mix minus VO", which depending on how VO is defined can be entirely different than "mix minus narrator".
