Adding and EQ plug-in, then changing frequency and Q settings using automation (similar to keyframes in FCPro)
- [Instructor] In the last movie,…we added this EQ to the clothing track,…to try and get a little bit of air into the room…before the speakers speak.…So one cool option is to, sort of, bring this in over time.…So, now that we've added the high shelf,…we can look at automation, and that's just the letter A,…on the sound effects track.…It's default is volume, but there's our one channel EQ,…and all the parameters can be automated.…
In this case,…it's just the high shelf frequency that I'm after,…and I could bring this in over time,…so start with a real airy room,…and then, kind of, bing in the bottom of it.…I'm thinking that, let me Command-Z and undo that.…I'm thinking that, rather than the frequency itself,…we just want to take the gain of it.…And start,…just going to click,…I want to see where he starts talking.…

Award-winning sound designer Joe Godfrey has developed a system for handing off the dialog, music, and effects mix from a Final Cut Pro timeline to Logic Pro. Why Logic? Many of the tools the Final Cut editor is using began there, and Logic has great tools that can be applied to dialog, music, and effects, as well the final mix. There are some things you want to do—in the right order—and some common mistakes you want to avoid. This course covers them all. Learn how to import audio from Final Cut Pro X in Logic Pro X, fix any syncing issues, edit dialog to perfection, add special effects such as pitch shifting and automated EQ, enhance music, and bounce out the final mix, either as a composite track or stems that can be mastered separately.
