Join Abba Shapiro for an in-depth discussion in this video Building a soundscape, part of Narrative Scene Editing with Final Cut Pro X v10.1.x.
- Now that the actor's voice overs are in place…and repaired, it's time to bring back…the sounds of the beach.…Let's step inside 06-04a Ambiance…and go ahead and add back some waves…and some birds and maybe a little bit of music.…So the first thing I know I want is I do want…that beach atmosphere, that beach ambiance.…Now all of this will be located in part three…under your sound effects, smart word collection.…If you select that you'll see these three cuts…and we're just going to go ahead and choose…"Beach Ambiance".…
And you can be pretty loose about this,…you can just grab a selection because you can…always trim it later.…And you can either bring it down by hitting the…"E" key but make sure that you're playhead…is at the very beginning or just drag and drop it…to the beginning of the show.…Let's go ahead and listen to the sounds of the beach.…(waves crashing)…Well if it was a hurricane this would be a good…sound effect, but right now it's a little bit too loud.…Let's go ahead and move our curser right…to the middle of the clip and bring the volume down…
Note: This course was updated to reflect the changes to Final Cut Pro X v. 10.1.x. Although the course was not re-recorded from scratch, we updated each of the movies by adding text overlays to guide you to existing changes. We also updated the exercise files to work with the most current version of the software. Please watch the "Understanding this update and using the exercise files" movie to learn exactly what to expect from this updated course. Working with an earlier version of Final Cut Pro X?
