It’s been said that the best way to improve the quality of your images is to improve the quality of the audio. That has never been more true than right now. But, exactly HOW do you improve the quality of your sound? And what’s the best way to work with audio in Final Cut Pro X in the first place? Answering these questions are what this session is all about.

Join host, Larry Jordan, in his brand-new training studio as he starts with the basics of working with audio in Final Cut Pro X, then moves into more advanced subjects such as keyframes, Roles, multi-channel audio and double-system sound. Watch and listen as Larry explains what you need to know, how to adjust it and how to make it sound better.


This intermediate-level webinar is suitable for all Final Cut Pro X editors who want to better understand how to work with audio in Final Cut or are looking for additional techniques to make their projects sound better. (This video training plays as a QuickTime movie. You don’t need to own any other software to watch this movie.)
