    I'm scoring music for a short film, have finished the cues, and now am mixing and getting them ready for the film mix. Here's my question.

    I've been working against picture, which has visual time code on it (and I assume embeded time code as well, if there is such a thing?)

    The cues are each gathered into their own folders. So I'm thinking I'll record separate stereo mixes for each of the cues (some will be several cues in a row since they overlap). How do I find out what the correct timecode start is for each cue so the film mixer can line them up correctly?

    The stereo mixes that I'm creating will not start on the first note of course, they will begin a little before. Is there a way to see what the time code is exactly at the beginning of a section I'm going to create a stereo mix of (bounce)?

    Sorry if this is hopelessly confused, it's my first time doing this in Logic Pro (or Logic for that matter)

    im a little confused, but if you open a new template and select audio for video or scoring to picture i forget what it is, it will give you a smpte transport and some more helpful tools, also you should load up a 3 beep. and if you start your cue b4 the film, it wont be included for the most part. and what about spotting notes.

    I don't do indepth film scoring in Logic so can't help on some specifics.

    Did you set the correct frame rate in Logic to match the video clip?
    I'm also confused by your questions. I can recommend the Steve H Logic Music to Picture tutorial which I began browsing on the weekend. Looks like it will cover all these questions and some.

    I got acces to the subscription plan which is online access to all their videos - which is good for me because I am a Designer/artist in my day job. This gives me all the Adobe tutorials and Logic and when I'm ready to explore Ableton Live and Omnisphere it's waiting for me :cool:

    I signed up using the discount code which is 25% off the monthly cost.
    Definitely something worth considering as the quality of training is very high for all the titles I've used.
