- [Instructor] Now it's time to import audio data … into our project. … So I'm going to the File menu, … Import, … AAF, … And I navigate to my exercise files folder, … and choose the AAF file that's in there. … And say Import. … Now this takes a second, so if you want to pause this movie, … go ahead and navigate and do your import and then pick up … when you're done, that's fine. … So I'll say Import. … It's opening the files. … And, it has encountered some audio that's at 441k. … So it's asking me, … do I want to change the project sample rate? … Well I don't, because I'm working with video. … Or do I want to just convert the files … to our chosen sample rate of 48k, … well I'm going to go ahead and convert. … Not sure which one of those files it was, … but right now they're all at 48. … So, just going to tap the letter Z, … so that I can zoom to the length of the project, … and it kind of looks like everything's in place. … Now, these are tracks that we saw earlier … when I imported this AAF, and showed you that. …
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.
