Join Scott Hirsch for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding the audio production workflow, part of Pro Tools: Audio for Film and Video.
Let's get into the basic workflow of an audio for video project and see how…Pro Tools integrates.…First, the production phase. The video is shot.…While Pro Tools can be used to record audio on a set, typically location audio…recordists use a separate hard drive or flash recorder.…Then we have the Picture edit. In this step, the video, along with production…sound, is imported into video editing software, such as Final Cut Pro or…Avid Media Composer.…During this period of time sound engineers can gather and record other sound…effects that might be useful for the project, or go through sound effects…libraries, storing sounds, editing, and compositing them in Pro Tools, gearing up…for sound work that lies ahead.…
When the picture editing is complete, the picture is said to be locked.…There may be still graphic, special effects, or other picture manipulations, but…the timing of the cuts are solid and fixed.…The next step is the OMF or AAF transfer, where the sound is separated from the…picture and brought into Pro Tools.…

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.
