Join Scott Hirsch for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Audition: Mixing a Short Film.
If you are a premium member of the lynda.com online training library, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. The exercise files have been compressed to a ZIP file called Exercise Files. Download and uncompress this file and you'll see a folder called Exercise Files. In this folder, you'll see the Adobe Audition session files and the accompanying audio files we'll work with in this course. I included one master session folder called Castles_audition.
In here, there are bunch of Audio Session files that correspond to the beginning and end of all appropriate chapters for this course. These are the .sesx files. You can double-click on these or open them from the File menu in Audition. The media for all these files is collectively shared in the Audio Files folder. As long as you copy the Castles_audition folder to your work hard drive and don't go moving folders around, all files should link up. The first time you open it, or if something gets moved, Audition might ask you to relink the files.
In that case, just navigate to the place where the files are and Audition will automatically relink the rest of the files, as long as the files are present on your drive. If you're a Monthly or Annual subscriber to lynda.com and you don't have access to the online training materials, that's okay too; you can follow along with your own media. All right, great! Let's get started on Mixing a Short Film with Adobe Audition.
This Adobe Audition course is an excellent companion to our video course Documentary Editing with Premiere Pro, which shows how to highlight a cause, express a point of view, and tell a story with Adobe Premiere Pro and some essential documentary editing techniques.
