Lesson 5. Horror Festival Ad > Marking the Audio layer

Marking the Audio layer

Once you have created an audio map, you can mark the Audio layer by using layer-time markers. Layer-time markers will help you position the Mouth layer mask shapes later. Once again, you can use the library if your time is limited.

  1. Activate Ghost Comp, make sure the current time is set to 00:00, and then drag the GAud.mov footage item from the Project window into the Ghost Comp Time Layout window.

  2. Preview the audio you just imported: choose Composition > Preview > Audio Preview, or press the period key on the numeric keypad.

  3. Set the current time to 04:14, where the narrative comes in and the ghost begins speaking (the first item in the audio map table).

  4. To add a layer-time marker to the GAud.mov layer at the current time, press the asterisk key on your numeric keypad. A white layer marker appears on the layer duration bar.

  5. Double-click the white layer marker, type You for the name, and then click OK. This is the point in the audio where the narrator says the word You.

  6. Set the current time to 04:17 (the next time in the audio map table), and then press the asterisk key on your numeric keypad. Double-click the layer-time marker, type are for the name, and click OK.

  7. Drag the Zoom slider in the Time Layout window all the way to the right to see the frames.

  8. If necessary, drag the viewing area markers out until you can see both of the markers.
