Audio Pops When Chopping Clips
on Apr 3, 2018 at 7:15:08 pm

So I haven't had any luck finding this online.

So, I edit VLOG's and there's a lot of dialogue to chop up. Tons of splicing between sentences, so theres often a pop in between the clips, where one audio ends and another begins.

My current process is chop clip, fade audio by 1-2 on each side, then repeat. Incredibly tedious and time consuming. It seems like theres gotta be a simple solution to just edit the video, select all the clips and then apply audio fades to everything.

Anyone have a simple solution for this? You will make my editing life SO MUCH HAPPIER!

Thank you!

An audio pop is common when cutting audio and the levels are mis-matched on either side of the cut. The typical solution is add a small fade to either side.

In FCPX 10.3 and later this can be done with a single keystroke for a batch of clips. The duration of the audio fade is adjusted in FCPX preferences>Editing>Default Fade Duration.

The menu to apply them is Modify>Adjust Volume>Apply Fades.

By default there is no shortcut key assigned but you can easily do this as shown in MacBreak Studio #387:
