In my conversations with other editors it became clear that for a lot of them (myself included), audio was a major area of weakness. They could handle editing, color correction, graphics, etc, but only knew a few ways of improving bad audio. This inspired me to create this guide to show people exactly what Final Cut Pro offers out of the box. Filters in FCP are split into two categories – Apple Audio Units (AU) which ship with the operating system and are available to any application, and FCP-specific ones. Today I’ll be giving details on the Audio Units with the FCP-specific ones coming in Part 2.
