Join Scott Hirsch for an in-depth discussion in this video Using room tone, part of Pro Tools: Audio for Film and Video.
In this movie, we'll explore some tools and techniques to use while you're…cleaning up dialog and putting that all-important room tone in between your…regions, so you can smooth your edits out.…One important thing to know about dialog editing is that you will never want there…to be in empty space where no sound occurs.…So when there's no talking or there is an edit, you must fill it in with room tone.…If you aren't given room tone, you can usually find some hanging past the…boundaries on the end or beginning of some of the regions, but there are…some do's and don'ts.…You may have the idea that you can just grab some tone off the end of a…region and loop it.…
So like right here, it looks like we have some room tone.…This seems cool, but it rarely works.…Let's see if it works here.…I am going to hit C to copy this, and using semicolon, go down to an edit…track and V to paste.…Let's use the Option+Command+L or Alt+Ctrl+L to loop this eight times.…Now, let's see if this actually works as a room-tone loop.…

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.
