Appreciate any help with this, and I’ll try to explain it in a way that makes sense (I’m not a new editor, just a pretty basic one – razor blade kind of editing).
I am using FCPX to create a dramatic podcast. We recorded actor dialogue in a sound studio, and I was given several .wav files of each actor’s mic (eg. ActorAone, ActorAtwo, ActorAthree; ActorBone, ActorBtwo, ActorBthree; etc for 7 total actors/direct audio feeds. In addition, I was also given a stereo mix of all actors FullCastOne, FullCastTwo, FullCastThree, etc.). All the individual actor and full stereo mix cuts are of the exact same length (actorAOne, ActorBOne, FullCast one are 26 minutes, 14 seconds and then we cut, and so on).
I’m putting together my rough using the full stereo mix. When that is finished, I’d like to replace the stereo mix with the individual actor’s audio feed. Is there a way, rather than go back to each actor clip, find the cut and timing I selected in the stereo mix, and replace it; but to perhaps lay in each actor clips at a new level, copy all edits from stereo mix one, and apply to actor A one?
I hope that makes sense, and am also very hopeful there is indeed a way to do it as it would obviously save a ton of time. Please let me know if I need to clarify anything.
Thanks Eric. I’ll investigate. I don’t have much experience with compound clips.
I’m also wondering if I shouldn’t be looking at a Multicam type of approach (which, again, I have no experience with). But since all the clips are identical takes, just from different sources, maybe that’s the way to go?
