we would work with the music track … for this scene. … And as tempting as it is to open up a bunch of … I'm going to stick to my promise. … So Mike chose this music for the scene … and let's get as much of it in there as we can. … Yeah so now that they're panned … I think I can probably group them so that when I make … a volume move to one it is mirrored in the other. … So let's go ahead and … actually I got to choose … the track. … And then shift select, choose the other track … and then we can make a new group … and we'll call this … music. … Where did we leave the room tone? … Down here in the twenties I guess. … Let's just start with the music kind of … down in here somewhere and see how it does. … (upbeat music) … - I would follow them, I would learn their every move. … (engine starts) … - Alright so I can hear everything that's being said. … I heard the sound effect nice and loud. … In fact it might be just a tad loud. … let's move them both down just a smidgen. … And … let's just see, actually let me go back over here …
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.
