Join Joe Godfrey for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Final Cut Pro X & Logic Pro X: 2 Mixing Dialog, Music, and Effects.
- [Instructor] Here's how I've set up the exercise files … for this title. … In chapter one, we start with an empty logic session. … Then we set some global and project preferences. … Then we add tracks … and we add channel strips to those tracks. … And we save that work as a template. … So I didn't give you an empty logic session, … because the one you can create … is just as good as the one I would've given you. … In chapter two, we edit dialogue, … so I've given you a logic project … with the dialogue, effects and music tracks in place. … If you want to just start editing dialogues, … start with chapter two. … If you want to see how those tracks got there, … that's in the movies of chapter one. … In chapter three, we work with sound effects and music, … so I've given you the option to start there … with the dialogue already edited. … Chapter four is about the bounce options, … so you have the option to start there … with everything already edited. … The clip we're using is from a short film …
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.
