Pro Tools 8 Essential Training unveils the inner workings of the industry-standard software for music and post-production. Musician, producer, and educator David Franz demonstrates all the concepts and techniques necessary for recording, editing, mixing, and mastering in Pro Tools 8. He teaches how to create music with virtual instruments and plug-ins, edit with elastic audio for time and pitch manipulation, create a musical score, and mix with effects loops. This course can help any music producer, sound engineer, or hobbyist become proficient in Pro Tools 8. Exercise files accompany the course.
Once you've created all the audio that you want to include with your video, you can marry the two together by bouncing them to a QuickTime or a Windows Media Movie file. First make sure that you mixes the way that you want it, with all the correct track levels, and fade-ins, and fade- outs where they are needed. Also, be sure to check the Master Fader output level in fade-out as well. You don't want to have the final output level too low or too high so that it clips. In this particular session, I've got a Maxim plug-in on the Master Fader track, as well as a fade-out at the end. So I'm pretty much covered as long as we don't get any clips and it looks like we have not had any clips since I've played this back before, but when we bounce it, we'll find out for sure.
Next, you need to choose the amount of time that you want to actually bounce and I have set up markers to do that. So I have a Start marker and an End marker and all I need to do is click on the Start marker, press Shift, click on the End marker and that highlights the whole time that I want to actually bounce the track and you'll note that the End marker is placed just after the ending of the master fader fade-out. So now I'm going to go to File > Bounce To > QuickTime Movie. Now in Windows, this would say Windows Media Movie. And the Bounce window opens up. Again, on a PC you'd see Windows Media here.
Now we are going to choose the main output source, Analog 1-2. The Format is Stereo Interleaved, Bit Depth 16. Now on the Sample Rate, I'm actually going to change this to 48 kilohertz. 48 is more of a video standard than 44.1 and it just so happens that I was working a 48K in this session as well, so I don't need to convert to any other sampling rate. Now when I hit Bounce, I need to save it so this is the video_final and it will bounce in real-time, marrying the audio with the video. (Music playing.) (Male speaker: Las Vegas, Sinatra's town.) (Male speaker: A make-you town, or a break-you town.) (Male speaker: Where one roll of the dice brings fortune and vice. Yes!) (Male speaker: Or frustration and weeping. Augh!) (Male speaker: Either way, you're not sleeping.) (Male speaker: What happens in here, stays here, and what happens here most is money. Cha-ching!) (Male speaker: Tonight we're going inside to take a closer look at casinos, the lifeforce behind the city that never sleeps.) And you'll see Pro Tools is saving as a self-contained movie and what that means is that it's marrying the audio and the video into one file. And now, if we want to, we can go and navigate and find that QuickTime or Windows Media Movie file and open it up and check it out and the audio will be in there and with our video.
And that's how you bounce down a video with audio that you've created in Pro Tools down to a QuickTime or a Windows Media Movie file.
