Two methods of navigating and storing information for the movie project
- [Instructor] I have a couple of topics…that I think will make your work more efficient…and I thought I'd put them into…this one movie.…So the first one is markers.…If you go to the global movie track,…and click on Movie, you'll see that…Logic will Create Marker Set From Scene Cuts.…My experience is it's using light…or a change in background as a trigger…to generate a marker.…So you can create your own markers automatically,…or you can create them on the fly…as you watch the movie.…
So let's not create them from…the light in the movie, let's actually…go to a spot.…Actually a really good spot would be…the first cut away to her flashback.…So the command for creating marker…is Option Apostrophe.…
But you'll notice that it created it…not exactly where the play head is.…So let's undo that.…Because we really need to create a marker…without rounding.…And now it's put it exactly where the play head is.…You can double click in here and call this…Flashback 1.…
And it's pretty short.…So we'll want to change its length,…that's moving the whole thing.…
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.
