- How to choose which mic to use in a dialogue edit

- How to set up your channel mapping

- How to use keyframes and automation to dynamically adjust track and clip levels

- How and when to bounce tracks and timelines

One of the tricks with online courses is what to do when you have a question. We have you covered there. You can email me any time when you sign up for the course. We also hold weekly Sound for Video Sessions where we cover sound for video topics in more depth and even have Q&A sessions once or twice a month.
