Video: What you should know before watching this course

The audio workflow and pathway from Apple's video software, Final Cut Pro, an Apple's audio software, Logic Pro, has become complex in recent software versions. For this reason, it's good to speak briefly about the workflow we show in this course. And generally, about getting audio to and from Final Cut Pro and Logic. Parts of this course, specifically mention a workflow from Final Cut Pro to Logic Pro and back. While this is a widely used workflow, it's no longer available with the release of Final Cut Pro 10. In this course, we're showing the latest version of Final Cut that's compatible with Logic Pro, version 7. This decision on our part was based on the fact that many professional video editors are still using Final Cut Pro 7, and this workflow. We hope in upgrades to come, Apple reintroduces a proper workflow from their newest flagship Final Cut Pro, to their flagship audio software. And we can adjust this course to reflect the workflow when it comes. Until now, we're sticking at the most commonly used workflow within the Apple software community.

In this course, explore a powerful round-trip workflow between Logic Pro and Final Cut Pro that helps sound editors to quickly mix dialogue, sound effects, and music for film. Author Scott Hirsch frames the lessons in a way that appeals to filmmakers of all levels, as well as professional and amateur audio mixers. He starts with exporting your tracks from Final Cut Pro and taking advantage of the film and video templates in Logic Pro, which makes project setup a snap. Then discover how to consolidate and edit dialog, fix noise problems and background hum, and add special effects. Finally, explore how to use automation and EQ to enhance and match your final tracks to the picture.

Topics include:
  • Setting up your project
  • Exporting audio and video
  • Editing dialogue
  • Fixing hum and broadband noise issues with processing
  • Synchronizing sound effects
  • Automating volume
  • Printing the final mix stems

And we can adjust this course to reflect the workflow when it comes. Until now, we're sticking at the most commonly used workflow within the Apple software community.

It's only optional that you're using Final Cut Pro to benefit from this course. We're working with OMF files to move audio between programs. And in addition to Final Cut Pro, many other video editing software support exporting to this file type. When we're done, we're simply exporting audio files. So, any video editing program can reimport these as well. So, the goal of this course is to show you a possible workflow, but more importantly, to explore how to go about finessing and enhancing the audio for your short film project. I worked to design a course that uses some very powerful techniques in Logic Pro, yet from the point of view that you're not a Logic Pro expert. Or even necessarily, a frequent user of the software. Here, in this course, I wanted to concentrate more on the approach and technique of mixing audio for film and video. Rather than, going through all the technical possibilities of the Logic Pro software.

I hope you enjoy it.
