Join Scott Hirsch for an in-depth discussion in this video Dealing with noise problems, part of Audio Post Workflow with Final Cut Pro X v10.1.x & Pro Tools.
- There's several noise reduction software plugin bundles…out there that you can buy as add-ons to Pro Tools.…But you'd be surprised how much you can do…just by simple editing.…A lot of noise problems are just short events…that, if edited out properly, can really make a difference…in how clean your clips sound.…Let's take the John Downey interview, for example.…Here's one of these noise issues, right on a cut.…It sounds like he's smacking his lips.…Let's take a listen.…- [audio from video clip] ... dirty can (smacks).…I like to--…... dirty can (smacks).…I like to--…- A first inclination is to select this area and delete it.…

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 the applicable 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 "Using the exercise files" movie to learn exactly what to expect from this updated course.
