Creating an offset so that the first frame of picture plays where we want it
- [Instructor] I've set up our sessions…so that we have some sync issues…so that we can resolve them.…So what I've noticed is that in this movie…there's 10 seconds of leader.…It's not academy leader,…but it's just 10 seconds of black.…And then there's a two-pop,…which is both visible and audible.…Well actually, it's not visible, huh?…He did give us a pop at the end.…Is it, is there one at the beginning?…No pop at the, at the beginning.…
Okay, so let's put that back up in the corner here.…And what I'm noticing is...…(ominous rumbling)…That the sound in the timeline is happening…well before the start of picture;…and the sound from the movie, which is here,…is happening at the 10-second mark;…and then there's some dialogue that happens after that.…But this is like, room tone through here, and then dialogue.…
So we need to get all this stuff synced up.…There is, there's the two-pop right there. Okay.…So that actually has to happen at the 58-second mark…in order for our sound to happen at the zero mark.…So, the way I think I want to do this…
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.
