When an audience watches a movie, they pay more attention to the sound than they do to the actual picture because the sound of a movie carries all of the emotional content, as well as the main source of information, via dialog. In your own productions, you can have poorly filmed video with dodgy contrast or saturation, but if your audio clips into distortion or has wildly fluctuating levels, viewer's will walk away.

Thankfully, we have a master of Video Post Production as a trainer at - Bill Burgess! In this Level 2 Pro Tools Tutorial, Bill walks you through everything you need to know to efficiently use Pro Tools to make excellent soundtracks for your videos.

This tutorial is a classic example of "edutainment." Bill brings a level of humor to his presentation that will keep you watching - and laughing - through the entire show. With a ton of time-won tips and tricks on offer, it's obvious Bill's walked-the-walk of a video post editor. You'll learn how to repair sound, expedite edits, and do complex dialog replacement... by the time you're finished this tutorial, no video post job will seem too demanding.

This is a comprehensive tutorial, but you don't need to watch the entire show. Use the detailed menus and keyword search functions to quickly find topics of interest. To see a full list of this tutorial's topics, visit the Table of Contents.
