Voice over tool
on Jan 16, 2012 at 12:07:29 pm

I am using for the fist time the voice over tool on FC (7). Just 2 simple questions:

1. how do I set a target track? It just gives me A3 as a target but it's no good for me...

2. where does it save the media ? Does it go into the Capture Scratch folder?

Many thanks!

The VO tool will, by defualt, use the next available track. So I guess you have audio on 1+2 so it is putting the VO on track 3.

You can override this by using the track 2 source selector and routing it to whichever track you would prefer to have your VO recorded to.

So if it track 5 simply select source track 2 and route it to track 5.

I have also seen people lock tracks they dont want to use but thats a few more clicks.

Yes the voice over file is recorded on your default scratch disk.

Hope that helps

best wishes

Here's the technique that really works, which Shane Ross recommended to me years ago.

[Shane Ross] "You have to mark IN and OUT on the timeline, and have an open track.

This is why I make a new sequence and lay SLUG on the VIdeo track for 40 min.
