  • How do I get rid of the echo created when I retime a video

    Okay, Really frustrated. When I retime a video in FCPX (10.7.1) it messes up the audio by creating just the slightest echo or reverb on the audio track. Does anyone know how to resolve this problem? I’d greatly appreciate it.

    I’ve never had this happen with video but have heard it on audio in Pro Tools. It was caused by a plugin adding latency to a track, delaying it, and thereby, creating an echo.

    If you are using any plugins on the audio or video elements, try bypassing or removing them.

    First, yes, that can happen. Happens to me on occasion. Usually when you’re slowing a clip down by a small percentage. Most of the time being sure you have “Preserve Pitch” checked in the Retiming Menu. That should handle it.
