Creating a MIDI slug for consistent bounce length, and choosing format options
- [Instructor] Whether we're bouncing for broadcast TV…or DVD or YouTube or whatever the format,…we want to get the bounce length right.…And I've come up with a way to do that.…You may have your own preference, but I'll show you mine.…So, if I do Command + B and bring up the Bounce window,…it currently has a length of the beginning of the piece…out to the end, but I find that, you know, as I jump back…and maybe tweak something, just select something,…so I can listen to it and make sure it's the right volume…and then I go back to Command + B,…it's changed the length of the bounce.…
And it does this all the time,…and it's caught me enough times that I thought,…you know, as long as it's going to respond…to what I select in the timeline,…let me make that work for me.…So, I'm going to go to this track.…Actually, the one right above it…and then create a software instrument track.…And its entire job is to give me this slug.…I'm going to control-click and create an empty MIDI region.…
I'm going to start it at the beginning…
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.
