Pro Tools 9 Essential Training with musician and producer David Franz demonstrates concepts and techniques necessary for recording, editing, mixing, and mastering in the industry-standard software for music and post-production. The course covers creating music with virtual instruments and plugins, editing with elastic audio for time and pitch manipulation, creating a musical score, and mixing with effects loops. 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 down to a QuickTime or Windows Media movie file. First make sure that your mix is the way that you want it, with all the correct track levels, no bad, clicky edits, and fade-ins and fade-outs where they're needed. For example, on this voiceover track, I'm going to zoom in, and we can take a look that I've actually created fades and crossfades here, so this track should be just fine. We don't have any clicks or bad edits here.
We also need to check the master fader output level and the fade-out as well. We don't want to have the final output level be too low or too high so that it clips. So we'll do one last listen through, and we'll watch the master fader level. And I'm going to open up this to give us even bigger view all of the master fader level. (Music playing.) (Music playing.) (Male Speaker: Beautiful scenery. Plenty of places to ride.) (Music playing.) (Male Speaker: Gorgeous weather. It just doesn't get any better than this.) Everything sounds good.
Now all we need to do is choose the length of the time that want to bounce. And I'm going to choose the entire length of the movie, but one thing I want to check first is to make sure that the fade-out on the Master Fader is the same length as what that movie file is. So I'm going to zoom in here, and as it turns out, the fade-out goes a little bit longer than the movie file, so I'm going to bring some automation in here to make sure that the fade-out ends right as the movie file does.
I'll zoom back out. So now we should be good to go. We've got the movie file highlighted, so it's going to be exactly that amount of length for our bounce. So let's go to the File > Bounce to > QuickTime movie. And here, I want to create a stereo interleaved file, and I'm also going to bounce it down to 48 KHz as the sampling rate, which is kind of the standard audio sampling rate, when married with video. And I'm going to use the best conversion quality to do so, the Tweak Head.
And now when I bounce it, I need to save it as something, and we'll call it 'final_video1.' (Music playing.) (Music playing.) (Male Speaker: Beautiful scenery. Plenty of places to ride.) (Music playing.) (Male Speaker: Gorgeous weather. It just doesn't get any better than this.) And that's how you bounce down of video with audio you created in Pro Tools to a QuickTime movie file.
