Join Scott Hirsch for an in-depth discussion in this video Layering sound for heightened impact, part of Sound Design for Motion Graphics.
- Sometimes more than one layer…of sound is needed to make an effect work correctly.…In this movie, we'll create a composite impact sound…using a few layers.…Here where the gear flies in…we have a whoosh sound…but the outwardly moving rings imply…that we might need more of a whoosh…plus impact sound.…Let's take a look at what I'm talking about.…So this clip right here,…Production Element Title Transition Whoosh Short 08…is there to emphasize…the blue gear coming in…but when it impacts the bike,…we're kind of missing an impact sound…so I'll just watch it in real time…to hear what I'm talking about.…
(whooshing effect)…Right so we have a good whoosh…but it'd be really cool to also have a nice impact sound…so let's make a composite effect that includes the whoosh…but also will bring in a couple of impact sounds…and we'll make one composite sound effect…that takes care of all of our needs here.…So I'm gonna go over to my Media Browser…and in our Exercise folder we have a folder…called Sounds to Import.…Now in here we have a few sounds…
This course is based on a 30-second graphics project, which is used to demonstrate concepts ranging from sound selection and spotting to sound creation and manipulation. Along the way, author Scott Hirsch provides an in-depth look at Audition's Multitrack and Waveform Editors, as well as the process of round-tripping a project to Premiere Pro. Plus, he'll show how to create your own riveting sound effects from scratch and start building a library you can use for future projects.
