So, ya know how you sometimes have a clip, usually a music ender or something, that you’d like to add a reverb tail out to? And how you have to put it in a Compound Clip, add some Gap, go back to the project and extend the clip so you’ll have some media for the ‘verb to tail out in? Or you set an I/O range that extends beyond the clip, export it, import the longer clip you made and add your reverb.
I’ve been doing that in every NLE I’ve used. Actually… I think Vegas might act more lIke a DAW and verb will tail out past a clip boundary. But… you gotta do the workaround in FCP Old, Pr or MC.
Well, in FCP X, turns out you don’t need to do that at all. There’s an easier way – using the audio hold frame “panhandling” trick. Check it out, and thanks to a viewer of one of my other videos for pointing this out, it’s an enormous timesaver…
I found this post via the article on FCPX being used for the Whiskey Tango Foxtrot movie. I am not at this level yet, but watching the video on the reverb was really interesting! Thank you so much for showing us how to do it 🙂
