Lesson 11. Working with Audio > Hearing and Seeing Audio

Hearing and Seeing Audio

As you work on a sequence in Final Cut Pro, there will be times when you want to make a precise mark or trim a clip based on what's happening in the audio rather than in the video track. Maybe you want to isolate a specific vowel sound, edit out a breath, or edit one beat of music to another from a different part of the music track. To do this, there are audio controls that allow you to hear your audio and also to see a visual representation of the sound of each clip.

Hearing Audio

Sometimes, hearing the audio as you scrub through a clip in the Viewer, Canvas, or Timeline is helpful, allowing you to find or trim a particular edit point. At other times, if you're focusing on just the video, it may be distracting. In this case, you can turn off the sound as you scrub. In addition to scrubbing, shuttling through the audio in a clip or sequence may allow you to mark a precise point. In this exercise, you will work with a few ways to hear audio as you prepare to trim an sot clip.
