    Hey all,

    So I've been playing around with the trial of FCPX. Using it for some pretty simple videos (but it still does more than iMovie). I can get it with education pricing so it's not too terrible, but not sure if it's for me or not.

    Anyway, here's the one thing I haven't figured out how to do (so far).

    Say I have three seperate audio 'tracks'. One is music, used mostly for intro and exit. Second is a microphone, and third is a 'background noise' mic.

    So, I've figured out how to set the volume of the entirety of each clip. However, what if I wanted to mix and adjust? What if, at one point during the clip I wanted the background noise to be louder than the main microphone? What if I wanted to mute out or lower the volume or a cough or a bump in the microphone? Beyond just fade-in/fade-out, I want to be able to manipulate the volume of the audio tracks, at certain points.

    Anyone wish to tell me how? Cutting and dividing up the audio clips won't work; as that would be an issue getting audio synched up (it has to be synched anyway, since the audio sources; all but one, are separate from the camera)

    Thanks guys, I appreciate the help!

    -John

    Look into "audio keyframes" or enter "audio keyframe" in the Final Cut Pro X Help available via the "Help" Menu.
