Missing Content - Effects


Missing Effect is the lack of certain environmental sounds or onscreen effects from an audio mix. The dialogue and/or music will still be present. Missing Effect impacts the content quality of an asset. If on-screen actions do not have corresponding audio effects throughout a scene or program, the customer experience is negatively affected. It is possibly creative intent on the part of the content producer. Further assets created from this source will have missing effects.

Severity Structure:


The on-screen effect is missing under dialogue or very low in the mix.

Needs Review

The on-screen effect is missing and not under dialogue. The movement on-screen could be far away or not related to the particular scene.

Needs Fix

The attention in the scene is focused on an action or element in the scene, but there is no corresponding audio effect. It is clear there should be an effect associated with the action, but it is missing. 


Review and confirm if this is creative intent; otherwise, add or replace all missing effects within the mix.
