Join Diana Weynand for an in-depth discussion in this video Refining the primary sound bed, part of Final Cut Pro X v10.1.x: Effective Storytelling.
- Some people are great conversationalists.…They express themselves clearly and succinctly.…They choose each word carefully…and almost seem to edit what they're saying in their heads…before saying it out loud.…Not all of us are eloquent enough to nail our thoughts…on the first try, especially when we're talking about…something important to us.…We "um" and "ah" in search of the right words…to express our feelings.…But when you're wearing the editor's hat…and trying to tell a succinct story,…those "ums" and "ahs" become your responsibility.…
In the project library, let's open the Sound Bed project.…In this project, we're going to use a single clip,…in fact, a very short 10-second clip,…of Paul talking to the camera.…Let's listen to what Paul says in this slip.…- If people, um, love their trees, their coffee trees,…uh, then the coffee trees are going to be taken care of.…- That's a very interesting and very poignant thought,…if people love their trees, then the love will follow…through the whole process and all will be good.…
