Final Cut Pro Plugins

There’s no denying that video editing can involve a huge amount of time and effort. The process can often involve a whole lot of frustration yet equal measures of satisfaction. Thus, video editing often requires a great deal of patience and dedication if your movie is to be completed. While some of the issues that editors encounter involve software or hardware problems, there are just as many issues related to perspective and inspiration. You can have the very best pieces of software in the world running from the best hardware – and know exactly what you’re doing – but if you don’t have the right mix of passion, focus and perspective, you can run into problems and lose momentum.

For some, even once the bulk of the video shooting and editing is complete, problems arise when it comes to working out what kind of music to use. From the atmosphere to the pace, there’s a lot to consider. To make things easier, those of you who use Final Cut Pro can utilise the Final Cut Pro Music plugin from FCP Audio. Our plugin allows you to manage, arrange and edit your audio within the Final Cut Pro X timeline alongside your footage.

It isn’t just about choosing a track – it’s about conveying a message

Think about the songs that you would consider to be your favourites. Why are those specific songs your preferences? It might be because the song has a message that you believe in, or maybe the melody is so impressive that you can’t help but be blown away by it. When you think about why you love your favourite songs, most of the time it’s because of how it makes you feel.

This also applies when it comes to choosing the right accompanying track for a video you’re editing. What exactly do you want to tell your audience? If your video has a specific theme, this can quickly narrow down the options of tracks which will work. The music is just as integral to conveying your message as the video itself. After all, your favourite songs don’t need a video to evoke emotion.

The right music can dictate the pace and atmosphere of your video

While the video still plays a huge part in the editing process, music is just as important. The tracks that you use to accompany your video are all tools to help amplify the feeling you are trying to convey. The reason editors recommend FCP Audio, the music plugin for Final Cut Pro X, is its flexibility. Not only do you have the ability to build, create and arrange your own tracks, but you are also supplied with three fully mixed and mastered versions of each song. Subtlety can make all the difference when it comes to music in a video, so having all of the instruments as separate audio files enables full control.

To conclude, it truly can’t be overstated what music can bring to your video. It’s why perspective and inspiration play such significant roles when it comes to choosing the correct tracks for your video. Hopefully, this provides some insight and helps you to deliver your message clearly and fill your audience with awe.
