Join Scott Hirsch for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up Pro Tools for video post, part of Audio Post Workflow with Final Cut Pro X v10.1.x and Pro Tools.
- Before we start working with Pro Tools,…it's useful to set up the global parameters…for the way we will be using the program.…Since it's not strictly a video post-production…audio application, there are a few settings…we need to get straight before working…with Audio for Video in Pro Tools.…First, let's open up Pro Tools.…We'll have to open up a dummy session…to get into some of these parameters,…so go ahead and open an empty session.…Let's use the standard video parameter,…16 Bit 48 kilohertz sample rate.…And we'll use Stereo Mix as the I/O setup.…
We'll name this session setup, and click save to open it.…Once we're inside Pro Tools, we'll see the Edit window.…It's where you'll see the timeline,…and do most of your work in Pro Tools.…First of all, let's clear up the timeline rulers…we won't be needing when we're working with Audio for Video.…There's a lot pertaining to music…stuff we won't be dealing with.…You can option click to remove…all of these timeline rulers except…for Minutes Seconds, Timecode and Markers.…
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.
