- [Narrator] So now we have a timeline … across the top, we also have bars and beats, … we're going to fix that in a minute, … and I got that when I close the Preferences window, … I was expecting it to redraw it right away … but it actually didn't redraw it … until I closed the Preferences window. … But there it is. … So we have two bars to configure in Logic: … a Control bar and a Tool bar. … Let's start with the Control bar. … So up in this gray area here, Control + click … and you'll get Customize Control Bar and Display. … Now if you Control + click in this gray area … you don't get it, you get it between these tools, … you can get it on this button, there's places you can get it … and places you can't. … But it's a pretty surefire thing … that if you Control + click on the Stop button, … you'll get that menu and up pops this window. … So let's go through these. … For Views, I would leave everything checked, … except you may want to uncheck the Quick Help button, … which gives you those little popup windows …
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.
