Advanced Audio Mixing with Roles in Final Cut Pro 10.3

Advanced Audio Mixing with Roles in Final Cut Pro 10.3

Mark Spencer from ProVideo Coalition and Sam Mestman from Lumaforge share a great tip for adding effects to audio in Final Cut Pro 10.3, on this episode of MacBreak Studio.

Advanced Audio Mixing with Roles

Mark states:

When it comes to applying effects to your audio, sometimes you want to apply one to a single component of a single clip, or all components of a clip; sometimes to all the audio within a specific subrole, and sometimes to all the audio in a overall role group. Final Cut Pro lets you do each of these, and lets you easily move back and forth between each of these levels to make additional tweaks at the clip/component level, the subrole level, and the role level.

How to Sync Double-System Sound in Final Cut Pro X

“Double-system sound is where you record the video on one device (a DSLR camera, for example), while the audio is recorded on a separate device (such as a digital audio recorder). Many video cameras don’t have high-quality audio recording built into them. This process resolves that issue.

In this short video, Larry explains what double-system sound is, illustrates the differences in audio quality between a mic on the DSLR camera and one recorded to a separate device, then shows how to sync the two files. In fact, there are two ways to sync double-system sound: one is very fast, and the other is very easy. Larry illustrates both.” – wolfcrow

Libraries, fixing time lapses with optical flow and audio repair


“Is it our misguided impression, or are there more cracking tutorials out there for Final Cut Pro X than any other NLE? True or not, we thought we would list some good ones from the last few days.

On another note as well, we have seen a huge surge in videos uploaded to sharing sites with the FCPX tag attached. Not an accurate dipstick of NLE usage, but it is interesting to see how far ranging across topics FCPX has become.

Back to the tutorials and let’s start off with this seven minute look at consolidation within FCPX 10.1.2. Dustin Hoye made this short tutorial to help his staff when sharing projects but published the video to help others. If his name rings a bell, Dustin wrote one of the first articles about using FCPX in a broadcast environment, which is still a great read!” –
