Even though this is a separate chapter in the book, I want to make the point that sound mixing is not necessarily something which happens separate from the rest of the editing. I will mix sound as I cut picture. Sometimes, if I have the time, I’ll spend more time on the audio, which may well be after the picture edit is complete. Sometimes, when there is no time, I may call on some of the auto-functionality built into Final Cut Pro X to sort out any of the differences in levels between clips.
