Join Joe Godfrey for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding a wild dialogue line, part of Final Cut Pro X & Logic Pro X: 2 Mixing Dialog, Music, and Effects.
- [Instructor] Let's dig into the dialogue for our mix. … So I've opened the exercise file for chapter two, … and I've saved it as dialogue. … If you're starting the training here, … and you just want to import the AAF from the exercise files, … two things will happen. … One is you won't have these tracks that we set up … in the last chapter, … and the other thing is your tracks will come across … as 44.1K not 48K. … When I imported the AAF, I told Logic to convert these files … so that they matched our project sample rate, … which we saved as a template. … And if you want to pick all that up, … it's in the last chapter. … All right, one problem we need to fix right off the bat, … which we saw on the last chapter, is we're missing a piece … of dialogue, so we call this a wild line. … It's not in sync. … It's not because she says something wild, … it's just, it's a wild line. … So let's get that into our project. … So I'm going to move the movie out of the way. … We could go to the audio files bin over here, …
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.
