Restoring sync to the 2-second synchronization pops supplied by the editor
- [Instructor] When this clip arrived,…when we imported the AAF, we had a 2-pop.…At the beginning and at the end.…And when we made the decision,…when I made the decision, to start the movie,…the first frame of picture at Bar One Beat One,…or ten seconds in, then we lost the 2-pop…in the audio track, in the reference track.…So now we have to get that back.…So we're going to go to File, Project Settings…and Synchronization.…
And I believe that if I change this…Bar One Beat One to zero, everybody will be happy.…I'll have my 2-pop back, except all my sounds now…are 10 seconds earlier than they should be.…So we can fix that easily enough,…by grabbing everybody.…
And make sure you get everybody…when you do this.…And just grab one reference track…and slide it back 10 seconds.…So I'm watching.…And it's asking me if I want to move…the track automation.…Well there isn't a lot of track automation,…but remember I did sort of do that EQ move…on the clothing track to sort of…introduce some air into the room?…So, yeah.…
We want to move that as well.…
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.
