Join Scott Hirsch for an in-depth discussion in this video The power of the template, part of Pro Tools: Mixing a Short Film.
The best way to set yourself up for speed and efficiency for your audio edit and mix…in Pro Tools is to create a template from which you can work from every time.…This way, you will cut out the time-consuming process of designating tracks and their outputs,…and you will have more time to work on the audio itself.…Let's open the My.Template session we last made in our initial setup lesson.…This is a Pro Tools session with 12 tracks.…The best way to organize a Pro Tools session for audio postproduction is to break up the…sound elements into stems.…
Think of a tree with several branches breaking out into stems.…There are three main stems we will designate, Dialogue, Effects, and Music.…By routing the outputs of our tracks to these three places, we will be able to mix our video…project in a very organized and efficient way.…Plus, the option to separate the stems later anytime is really useful.…So let's designate these first 12 tracks as our dialogue tracks.…We will name them DIA1-12.…
Double-click the first track header to rename it.…
