Further into finesse “More to the edit that meets the eye.” (OCD and your Brother Short Film) 25th March 2015

Ever so little do the updates include, but it’s all there.

I’d rather keep the progress up to date instead of blocks of information. That comes to today’s little edit tweaking, for example all of the audio that I dubbed/pre-existing was tweaked to leave no room for blank noise space.

Very tidy.

I already added the score I recorded into the edit, it was the rough edit of the score; put together to cover the length of what I wanted the music to appear over. Now I imported the scenes I wanted to add the score to into Garageband, watched the footage and applied the audio track, adding & editing the score to fit the scene(s).

Bringing it back into Final Cut Pro X I tweaked the audio levels to be lower over dialogue, as well as adding it to other scenes where there is no background sound.

The overall look of the edit so far.
