Join Scott Hirsch for an in-depth discussion in this video Synchronizing sound effects, part of Pro Tools: Mixing a Short Film.
Now that we have all of our dialogue and sync soundtracks edited, it's time to start thinking…about how we can add some sound effects to enhance the action in our film.…In this movie we'll look at importing sound effects and syncing them to picture.…In this scene here, the boss man is sending a message on his iPhone, but we have no sounds to go with it.…The message he sends isn't important part of the film, so we want to give his actions a little life here.…So let's go over how to import and sync up some cell phone sound effects we have.…The way to import audio with the most controls is through File > Import > Audio, or Shift+Command+I.…
This brings us into the Import Audio dialog window.…At the top of the window we can navigate to the sound effects folder on the Desktop.…We have two sounds, a tap sound and an unlock phone sound.…This window let's you audition the sounds before you bring them into the session. Let's play the tap sound.…That's the sound the iPhone makes when your fingers tap it.…Now we'll play the unlock sound.…
