Join Scott Hirsch for an in-depth discussion in this video Organizing the dialog tracks, part of Pro Tools: Audio for Film and Video.
If audio for video is a battle then the dialog edit is on the front lines.…The overall success of your soundtrack will hinge on the effectiveness of the…dialog, and all the other elements in your session will be built around it.…Here we'll discuss your overall approach to your first dialog pass.…As you see here, we have a pre-made session.…It follows the template ideas we worked on before, but it's slightly different,…since we're using it just for dialog.…As you can here, we have dialog A 1-4, which we'll use for this scene, and then…for the next scene, we would use dialog B 1-4, and then in the following scene…we would go back to dialog A 1-4.…

Q: This course was updated on 4/04/12. Can you tell me what changed?
A: This update was initiated when Avid released Pro Tools 10. It explains that this course can be taken with either Pro Tools 9 or 10 (the exercise files are compatible with both), and we also added movies that explore the enhanced clip-based gain and Audio Suite features in Pro Tools 10, both of which are useful when building a soundtrack.
