Join Abba Shapiro for an in-depth discussion in this video Using alternative takes, part of Narrative Scene Editing with Final Cut Pro X v10.0.9.
In this movie we're going to examine the workflow of looking at alternate takes.…Now I know you've looked at alternate takes in previous movies, but this is a whole different way of approaching it.…Let's step into 03-05 Alternative Takes and take a look.…Now I've set up my timeline with five clips at the very beginning, and these are exactly…the same lines read from different angles and at different times, so each read has slightly different nuance.…Let's take a quick look at the five reads and see how they differ.…
I'm going to just skim over the beginning of each one of them to hear Mr. Dalton's line.…(Mr. Dalton: How's the coffee? How's the coffee? So, how's the coffee? So, how's the coffee? So, how's the coffee?)…So we've seen this line before, but if you notice, each read is slightly different.…Some are more firm and some are more compassionate, and so it's more than just choosing the angle,…sometimes you need to choose the right read to get them right emotional response.…
And the same thing is true for Joseph's response.…
