Connecting the movie clip to the imported audio
- [Narrator] Now that the audio's in place,…let's import the movie…and the reference audio from the movie.…I always recommend getting the editor's audio output…on your movie.…If you encounter any sync problems at all,…they're much easier to solve if you have the audio…that's connected to the movie clip.…It's also your chance to hear where the editor,…and maybe the director, placed the dialogue…in reference to the effects of the music.…Was it way out in front like an ad or more subtle?…So there's a few ways to import the movie…and I'll show you what they are.…
You can Option + Command + 0, not zero…Option + Command + O, as in open,…and that gets you to this import dialogue.…You can go to the File menu and there's the keystroke,…and command for it.…There's kind of a more esoteric way to do it,…since we have this I'll show it to you.…You can use the Show/Hide for global tracks…and there's no movie track in there just yet.…If you hold down Control and click, you can Show Movie,…and then in this little movie menu is Open Movie.…
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.
