Want to learn How to Sync Audio and Video in Final Cut Pro?
We have all experienced the headache encountered when editing footage to the beat in Final Cut Pro. The process is long, complicated and only as good as the ears of the editor. Cutting footage to be in sync with audio and hoping you have tapped “M” to mark the point correctly is somewhat of a guessing game. This technique can leave you with amateur looking videos that do not sync well with the audio and in return your audience do not engage as you had hoped. Although editing to the beat is not always the right choice for every style of video editing, taking no regard for the audio you are using is an absolute no no.
We are going to show you How to Sync Audio and Video in Final Cut Pro, easily!
One of the big advantages of editing to the beat with precision, especially with fast paced action sequences or montages, is that you can captivate the viewer and hold their attention. What they are seeing in your video, they are hearing too, a combination which can create compelling viewing material.
