Join Joe Godfrey for an in-depth discussion in this video Archiving the project, part of Final Cut Pro X & Logic Pro X: 2 Mixing Dialog, Music, and Effects.
- [Instructor] Well, before we wrap up, … I wanted to add a short movie about archiving. … So, somebody may open this project, it might be you, … it might be tomorrow, it might be six weeks from now, … it might be six months from now, … maybe it's somebody else that opens it, … whoever it is and whenever it is, … you want it to make sense to whoever opens it up, … so let's take our three stem tracks and move them … down below our 2 mix, and that would be right there, … and then let's un-solo them, and we'll go ahead … and mute all those guys, but then let's unmute … everything that went into making the mix. … So, to me what this means is when I open up the project, … we'll leave that music muted. … When I open up the project, I'm going to hear the mix, … if I have any need to, I can reference the composite mix, … I can reference any of the stems, … but I want them muted because if they are not, … they'll play along with this track … just as the reference audio from the original movie did, …
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.
