Add background music and clean up sound effects. Final Cut Pro 10.3 Tutorial Series, part five, audio & sound effects. This is a complete A to Z tutorial for Final Cut Pro X. Part one was about importing media. Part two is all about tagging and organizing media. Part three was making a rough cut, and part four was adding B-roll. This is part five and its about audio & sound effects. I show you how to add background music, mark the beats in your song and make cut to the beats of your background music. I also show you how to adjust and balance volume levels of your clips, cross-fade between audio clips and smooth out your sound. I talk about audio meters, the rules of audio editing. Never peak your meters and if it sounds bad, change it. I borrow audio from one clip and apply it to another clip with bad audio. And before I finish my rough cut, I’ll show you how to add a basic cross dissolve transition with a keyboard shortcut. New videos coming every week, so please subscribe so you don’t miss them.
