Join Scott Hirsch for an in-depth discussion in this video Reversing and editing clips for effect, part of Sound Design for Motion Graphics.
- As we're working on our sound design,…we always want to try to tie together…repeating motion of a graphic element…by using similar sound effects.…In other words, when text flies into the screen,…then flies out,…I want to make my sound design consistent,…so we're sonically aware the same object that…flew in dramatically is now leaving.…But you have to be careful not to repeat…the same exact same sound effect too often.…In this movie we'll see how we can reverse a clip…to achieve that goal.…And we'll also explore how to use the Trimmer…and Fades tools to finish the job.…
Let's take this Production Element…Title Transition Whoosh sound, for example.…Here we have the whoosh sound of…the Gluteus Maximus text come in dramatically…even with our flanger effect on it…it makes it even more dramatic, here it is.…(whoosh effect plays)…Now if you notice, after that,…the Gluteus Maximus text leaves.…So it flies in…and right around here, it flies away.…So we want to, again, have a similar sound…but we don't want to repeat this sound exactly.…
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.
