Lesson 14. Creating a Sound Track > Exporting the Composition

Exporting the Composition

Now that you have created a Soundtrack masterpiece, you can export it for use in Final Cut Pro. You have a couple of options. You can export a stereo or mono mix of the Soundtrack composition that will produce a single AIFF file of your music. But you can also export all the tracks you used in your composition. In this case, separate files for each track used in the composition will be exported, which you can then import into Final Cut Pro and continue to edit.

Exporting a Mixed Track

1.
Press Cmd-S again to save the current composition.

2.
Choose File > Export Mix.

3.
Enter Sahara Rain Mix in the Save As field and navigate to the Media > Export folder as the destination.

When you exported the Sahara Rain - Starting sequence from Final Cut Pro, you included the rain sound. Since you already have that sound file in the Final Cut Pro sequence, you can choose to mute it when you export the music composition.

4.
Click the Mute audio track from video check box and click Export.

5.
In the Dock, click the Final Cut Pro icon.

6.
In Final Cut Pro, choose File > Import > File and navigate to the Sahara Rain Mix file you just saved to the Export folder. Click Choose.

In the Browser, the Sahara Rain Mix file appears as an audio clip.

7.
Edit this sound clip into the A1 and A2 tracks of the Sahara Rain – Starting sequence and play it.
