- [Instructor] Before we leave this chapter, … I wanted to cover markers and notes. … So, let me move this movie. … And if you go to the global tracks and movie, … you'll see that you can create a marker set from scene cuts, … so I'm not actually going to do this, … you can try it if you like, but what my experience tells me … is that it uses changes in light to create actual markers, … so it would probably create one there, … I'm not sure if it would grab all these back and forth, … over the shoulder type shots, … but in a short movie like this, … it's not clear that having a marker every 10 seconds … is going to matter that much, but let me show you … how to create your own markers. … So, we get to a spot where -- … that's kind of significant, … we move outside the room and we're here, … so let me go to 80, … was it three, two, one? … It's back here a little bit. … So it's actually a flash frame of black, … dissolve to black, and then back up again. … So, do we want the first frame of the new scene, …
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.
