Video with music

The process:

  • find/shoot footage
  • edit in iMovie to create video
  • “share” video – at this point can be lo-fi
  • open video in Logic
  • create music for the video
  • save the music as an audio file
  • return to iMovie
  • open video and drag your audio file to your movie
  • “share” the hi-def version of your movie

Vocal assignment due next class

Your first project is due next class on February 4th and 6th.

Please comp, merge, glue, tune, and mix 8 bars of the lead vocal track from our RIP recording session which is found on the desktop of the computers in the lab under “MM-RIP”.

You can mute the guitars for this project. I am only concerned with the vocal track.

Your project will be marked in class.
