- There's one more thing I want to show you before we get back … to our mix. … So let's un-solo all that stuff … and I want to go to the loop library … and I want to type in thunder … and I'm going to take thunder and lightening. … (loud thunderclap) … Actually I want thunder and rain … (gentle rainfall) … (boat engine roaring) … and not the boat, thank you boat, I'll cut back to you. … So thunder and rain 01, I'm going to bring it to a new track. … I think I let it go a little late there, … I'm going to push it up in the timeline, okay. … So that's just thunder and rain from the library … and let's solo it. … Now, if you're paying attention, I know you are, … you saw that it brought it in as a surround file. … It is a surround file but it's coming out … on a surround bus that it created … when it created this track. … So how do we change that? … Well we go over here to surround … and we change it to output stereo … and now we get away from this surround panner … that we had over there and we're back to a regular old …
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.
